In the Messages app, you can enable Audio Messages (also called Narration) to send free voice messages from your iPhone to another iPhone, iPad, or Mac user who has configured Messages to use iMessages. Sending free messages is only possible when you use the messaging app on Wi-Fi, but when you use it through your data, you may be charged. Not many people have explored this new way of sending voice messages, and I’ll show you how to use this option.
Step 1: Launch the Messages app on an iOS device and open the new iMessage thread.
Step 2: Use audio recording option to record voice note.
Step 3: When the audio recording is finished, you will see three options on your screen: Send, Play
