The only problem is, the voice message recipient is an Android user.

Is it truly possible to send a voice message on iPhone to someone using an Android phone?

Well, you’ll never truly know the answer unless you continue to read below.

Frequently Asked Questions about How to Send Voice Message on iPhone to Android

 

Why can’t I send my voice message on my iPhone?

One reason you can’t send voice messages on your iPhone is that you haven’t activated “MMS” under the “SMS/MMS” section of “Messages.” If you activated the MMS option already and you still can’t send voice messages, it’s possible your iMessage is still waiting for activation.

 

How can I prevent the voice message I receive and read from vanishing?

If you don’t want a voice message to vanish after reading it on your iPhone device, set its expiry to “Never.” You’ll find this option on “Settings” > “Message” > “Expire” under “Audio Messages. Then, tap “Expire” and press “Never” on the “Expire” page.
