One of the best features that iPhones have is Siri, the digital assistant from Apple. You can not only get any information you want but also do many other things using Siri. It can also control your HomeKit devices, send messages, play songs, etc. You can even send audio or voice messages using Siri on your iPhone.
The best part is that you don’t even need to touch your phone to send a voice message. You can easily reply to messages without using your hands. Siri can transcribe your messages, but if you don’t like voice-to-text transcription, you can also send voice messages easily. Just ask Siri to record a voice message.
Record and Send Voice or Audio Messages using Siri on iPhone
When you dictate your messages to Siri, there are chances of getting incorrect transcription. Voice or audio messages solve this problem. You send the same message that you record, with no transcription errors. So, let’s check the steps.
Step 1: Launch Siri on your iPhone
First of all, launch Siri on your iPhone. You can use the “Hey Siri” command or long-press the Side button on iPhone X and later or the Home button on iPhone 8 and older.
Step 2: Ask Siri to Send a Voice Message
After Siri is ready to take commands, say the following command to ask Siri to send a voice message:
“Send a voice message to <contact name>”
Make sure to replace <contact name> with the actual contact name to whom you want to send the voice message.
Step 3: Record a Voice Message to Send
Siri will enter recording mode and display an “OK recording…” message. While the Siri icon is animating, wait for 2 seconds and start speaking your message to record it.
Step 4: Send the Recorded Voice Message
After you have recorded your voice message, Siri will display a Message card with the attached recording. You can now tap on Cancel to delete this message or tap on Send to send it to the selected contact.
Before sending the message, you can also play the recording to be sure. If you don’t want to use your hands to send the message, you can ask Siri to “Send” the message using voice command.
INFO: You can also send WhatsApp messages using Siri. But first, you have to set up Siri to use with WhatsApp. So, go to Settings > Siri & Search > WhatsApp. Here enable Search & Siri Suggestions and Use with Siri. After that, you can use the “Hey Siri, send a WhatsApp message to <contact name>” command to send WhatsApp messages using Siri.
Send Voice Messages using Siri on the iPhone
Sending voice messages using Siri is simple. You can easily reply or send voice messages by giving voice commands to Siri on your iPhone. However, the voice message feature may not work on third-party apps but you can give it a try to be sure. If you don’t want to use Siri, you can also disable it in iCloud and delete learning data.
