Voice messages in Google Chat

Sending a voice message instead of typing enables you to save time, convey more information, and emphasize the most important information for the message receiver. We hope this highly requested feature helps you communicate with others more effectively.
Send a voice message in Google Chat


Additional details

We will be enabling transcription for voice messages in the coming months.

Getting started

  • Admins:
  • End users:
    • You can send voice messages on mobile (to direct messages, group chats and spaces) and receive them on all platforms, including web. However, you cannot send voice messages on web at this time.
    • To record on your Android or iOS device, tap the microphone icon > start speaking > watch a live waveform visualize your voice. A timer counts up so you know exactly how long you’ve been recording.
    • You can preview and then send your voice message or delete it and try again if needed.
    • Voice messages can be interacted with (quoted, reacted to, replied to in thread, etc.) just like any other Chat message.
    • Visit the Help Center to learn more about sending voice messages in Google Chat.
