Siri may still be behind Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant when it comes to features, but it’s getting more proficient and useful with each new update. You can use Siri not only to get information, but also to control HomeKit devices, play songs, send messages, and more. I use Siri daily to respond to messages hands-free. But if you are not satisfied with Siri’s voice-to-text transcription, you can simply ask it to send a voice message. In this article, I will show you how to send an audio or voice message using Siri on the iPhone.

Send Voice or Audio Messages Using Siri on iPhone

Sending audio or voice messages using Siri is simple and effective. This solves the problem of bad dictation because Siri simply records what you say and sends the recorded message to the recipient. This means you don’t have to double-check if the transcription is correct.

1. To get started, invoke Siri by using the “Hey Siri” command or by long-pressing the side button (iPhone X and later) or the home button (iPhone 8 and earlier).

2. Then use the following command to start sending a voice message.

“Send a voice message to (contact name)”

3. Siri will display an “OK recording” message and the Siri icon will begin to animate. Wait 2 seconds and start speaking your message.

4. After finishing your voice message, you will see the Message card with the recording attached. Press the play button to check the recording if you want and press the send button to send the message.

5. If you don’t want to send it manually, use the “Send” command to send the message.

One thing to note here is that sending voice messages with Siri on third-party messaging apps like WhatsApp didn’t work for me. If and when it starts working, I’ll update the article to reflect the same.
