How to record and send a voice message on Instagram
Each person has their own specific communication style. Someone is an extrovert, someone is an introvert, but we all have 24 hours a day. Any communication takes time. If you are ready to give it to someone, then this is usually included in your plans. If someone “hopes for your time” communicating with you “not on business”, then feel free to advise such people to write you letters.
For the rest, there are phone calls or voice messages. It’s a cross between a personal conversation and an email. But with the difference that you hear a living voice of a person, you can understand with what intonation he says it and in what mood he is. Another bonus of a voice message is that you can “say” a fairly large amount of information in less time if you were typing it. In this article, I’ll show you how to receive and send audio files instead of using standard Instagram text.

Features of voice messages on Instagram
On December 10, Instagram launched the Voice Messages feature in Direct. The duration of voice communication on Instagram is no more than a minute. To use this communication format, you need to install the latest version of the update. Sending a voice message is possible only immediately after it has been recorded. You can add animations, stickers or images to the voice message. The function is provided for both Android and iOS. It also works in group chats in Yandex.Direct.
Voice messages are not new to messenger fans, especially WhatsApp. But those who are accustomed to recording voice messages in this particular messenger will first need to adapt to some peculiarities. Unlike the popular WhatsApp messenger in Russia, unread messages are displayed in blue here. And the read ones are in black and white. Duration – no more than a minute. You can record and send audio to Instagram in a couple of seconds.
The Instagram development team is closely following information trends popular among the population. By the way, you can read about all the news on Instagram and Facebook in our news section. If some function or application has become in demand, then Instagram does everything possible so that users do not leave the platform in search of other instant messengers and other useful tools. Developers expand the functionality of the main application, increasing its overall value in the eyes of users.
How to send a voice message on Instagram
- First, make sure you have the latest version of the Instagram app.
- Sign in to your account in the main feed.
- Next, go to Direct by clicking on the airplane icon in the upper right corner.
- Select someone to whom you want to send a voice message from subscribers.
- In the text field, click on the microphone image.
- Dictate the message without letting go of the icon. You will see a blue bar at the bottom as you record.

You can delete a recorded but not yet sent voice message. To do this, click on the trash can icon or “Cancel Submit” while holding the file with your finger.

There are 4 proven methods for solving this problem on Instagram:

I hope you will appreciate this feature and will use it in everyday communication with friends, and maybe even clients. After all, with your voice you can convey not only a gamut of emotions, but also record much more information than in a text message. Speaking is still easier and faster than typing on a telephone keypad. Moreover, audio messages allow you to listen to the recording at the most suitable moment, which is very convenient!
Successful promotion to you! 🙌🏼
