How to Send and Receive Snapchat Voice Message Recordings

Snapchat is a popular messaging app that allows users to send disappearing photos, videos, and messages to friends. One fun feature of Snapchat is the ability to send voice message recordings in chat conversations. Here is a guide on how to send and receive voice messages on Snapchat.

Sending Voice Messages

Sending voice messages on Snapchat is easy. Here are the steps:

  • Open a chat with the friend you want to send the voice message to.
  • Tap and hold the microphone icon in the chat bar.
  • Keep holding the microphone icon and start talking. Yellow sound waves will appear to indicate Snapchat is recording your voice.
  • When done, lift your finger off the microphone icon to stop recording.
  • The voice message will automatically send. The yellow sound waves will turn green to indicate the message was sent.

You can record up to 60 seconds of audio in your voice messages on Snapchat. Make sure you grant Snapchat access to your phone’s microphone in your device settings to be able to record and send voice messages.

Recording Tips

Here are some tips for recording great quality voice messages:

  • Speak clearly and loudly enough for the microphone to pick up your voice, but don’t yell.
  • Find a quiet location without too much background noise.
  • Hold the phone close to your mouth as you speak.
  • Test different recording environments to find what works best.
  • Listen back to your test recordings to check the sound quality before sending voice messages to friends.

Receiving Voice Messages

When your friends send you voice message recordings on Snapchat, you will see a speaker icon appear in the chat.

To listen to voice messages:

  • Tap the chat with the voice message.
  • Tap the purple voice message icon.
  • The recording will automatically play.

You can replay voice messages as many times as you want by tapping the icon again. This makes it easy if you miss what your friend said.

Saving Voice Messages

Unlike regular Snapchat messages, you can save voice message recordings to listen to later, even after the message expires. Here’s how:

On iPhone

  • Tap and hold the voice message icon
  • Select “More”
  • Choose “Save Audio”

The recording will save to your camera roll.

On Android

  • Tap and hold the voice message
  • Select the download icon

This will save the voice message recording to your device’s downloads folder.

Voice and Video Chat

In addition to sending voice message recordings, you can have real-time voice and video calls with friends on Snapchat.

To start a call:

  • Open the chat with the friend you want to call
  • Tap the phone or video icon at the top
  • Your friend will get a notification inviting them to join the call

Video and voice calls make it easy to have conversations with friends on Snapchat in real-time.

Using Voice Filters

Snapchat has fun voice filters you can apply to voice messages or video/voice calls. Voice filters alter your voice in amusing ways.

To use filters:

  • Tap the smiley face icon before recording
  • Browse the available filters
  • Tap a filter to preview the effect
  • Record your voice message or make your call while the filter is enabled

Experiment with the different filters to make your voice messages even more fun and entertaining!

  • Check that your device volume is turned up
  • Try force quitting and relaunching the Snapchat app
