Instagram voice and video calling

There is no doubt about the fact that Instagram is currently the world’s favorite social networking platform. All of us spend at least an hour every day in scrolling down through our feed on Instagram. So, although already we have several apps that provides the voice and video calling features. Instagram has also recently added the voice messaging feature to its Direct messages for both iOS and Android devices. You can now record and send the voice note of up to one minute in private chat or group chat. 

In this post, I am going to share you a way on how you send audio message on Instagram on your iPhone/Android smartphones. But, before we proceed with the steps, make sure you have the latest version or above on Android and 74.0 or above on iOS and a valid Instagram account.

How to send audio message on Instagram

  • Open the Instagram app
  • Tap on the ‘Direct’ message icon from the top-right corner
  • Select the contact or group you want to send the voice message
  • At the bottom of screen look for ‘Mic’ icon in the text box
  • To record audio message Tap and hold the ‘Mic’ icon
  • Once done release the button to send the audio message.
  • You can also press, hold and swipe up to lock the recording button.

Like other messaging apps Instagram has also given the option to delete a message in case you have sent it by mistake. Just tap on the sent audio message an unsend button will pop up. Tap on it to delete the audio message, receiver may have already seen/heard it but it will be deleted for everyone. While, recording the audio message if you do not want to send it just drag your finger towards the left to delete the recorded message.

We already have several apps that provides the voice and video calling features. It seems like Instagram is all set to follow the path of its sibling apps such as WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger. Last, month they introduced the Instagram Show Activity Status feature to let you view the ‘Last Seen’ of other users. As, well as Instagram and Facebook profiles are linked and thus it is very easy to upload a photo from Instagram to your Facebook profile. There could still be chances where people don’t want to link their Instagram and Facebook. If you are also feeling so, you can unlink your Instagram and Facebook posts.
