Can You Send Voice Messages on Discord?

Do you want to send voice messages on Discord and don’t know how to do it? Unfortunately, there’s currently no such feature on Discord.

You must use external tools to send voice messages on Discord. Here’s how it works:

  1. Record your voice using a tool
  2. Download the recording on your computer
  3. Send the recording on Discord

That’s quite a hassle, but I’m afraid there’s no other way. You can use the voice recording app on your phone to create an audio file, then send that file to your computer.

Keep reading to learn how to send voice messages on Discord!

1. Open your phone app list

To send a voice recording on Discord on a desktop, you need to use a voice recorder on your phone, save the recording, and send it to your computer.

You should first open your app list and use the search bar at the top.

2. Find “Voice Recorder

Type in “record” in the search bar on your app list. If you don’t have a search bar, look through your app list until you find the voice recording app.

Depending on your OS and phone brand, the app may have a different icon and could be named differently. But it does the same thing.

Once you find it, select it!

3. Record your voice

Once you open the voice recording app, you should see a “Play” icon where you can start recording your voice. Tap on it and tap on the “Pause” icon to stop the recording.

4. Save the recording

After recording your voice, you must save it on your phone. Look for a button that helps you save the recording or download it to your phone.

In my case, I’ll select the checkmark icon in the top-right corner. It could be different for you, depending on your phone.

5. Name your recording and save it

You may be asked to name your recording before you can save it. This step doesn’t matter, but to be safe, enter a name you can easily remember and save the recording.

6. Open your File Manager

Next, you need to find your voice recording and the easiest way to do this is with your File Manager app. You’ll find this app in your app list, the same as where you found your voice recording app.

7. Select the voice recording and hit “Send” or “Share

8. Send the voice recording via social media or email

If you don’t have/use Discord on mobile, sending voice recordings will be harder.

You need to send the voice recording from your phone to a social media platform like WhatsApp, go to your computer, download the recording from the chat, and then send it to Discord.

For this article, I’ve used WhatsApp for this.

9. Download the recording from WhatsApp on your computer

After you send the voice recording on WhatsApp from your phone, go to your computer, open WhatsApp on Desktop, navigate to the chant you sent the recording to, and download it.

It will save the recording automatically on your Desktop or the “Downloads” file.

10. Open your friend’s chat on Discord

11. Click on the + icon

Is There an Easier Way to Send Voice Messages on Discord?

Yes, there is. But you’ll need to download and install Discord on your mobile phone. After that, follow the guide above until you reach Step 8.

When you need to select how to share the voice recording, instead of selecting a social media platform like WhatsApp, select “Discord“.
