Are you having problems with WhatsApp voice messages? Send voice messages It’s very simple, but sometimes they may not work properly for several reasons. To solve the problem, there is no miracle trick that always works, but there are a number of basic instructions that we can follow to fix the problem. Here we leave you a little basic tutorial for solving problems with WhatsApp voice messages.
Voice messages don’t work: common solutions
If you get the message from “The download could not be completed. Please try again later“or a”Voice recording cannot be set up at this time“, then you may have a problem with WhatsApp. This could be due to an update that WhatsApp has unconfigured, or an incorrect setting if it should not.
What should be done in these cases? Let’s start with the basics, Do you have an internet connection? We understand that. Did you increase the multimedia volume? Android has several volume levels and it is possible that despite good calls, the multimedia volume corresponding to the voice memos will be reduced and they will not be heard.
If you have already checked this logically, we continue with the second basic recommendation. You can restart them in all Android applications and leave them with the basic settings. We have to go to that Settings> Applications> WhatsApp> Force stop, We close the application. Then we should just try again and see if it has been fixed. This corresponds to a lifelong reset.
If the restart does not work, we will try to clear the cache. To do this, we have to do something similar. We are going to Settings> Applications> WhatsApp> Storage> Clear cache and clear memory, This is how we delete data that can lead to interference and problems with voice memos. A similar solution to delete and reinstall the Google Play application. One last point before proceeding; It is always recommended to restart the mobile phone even after the cache has been emptied.
Reconfigure language, date or folder
If clearing the cache doesn’t work, we have to apply several solutions that may work for us. Let’s see them
The first case is that there is a problem with speech and speech. To do this, we need to go to Settings> Languages and check if one is selected. After out speech synthesis It must be checked whether a synthesis engine is selected. It’s usually Google’s, but we could have another.
The date and time of the phone are also important for WhatsApp to work properly, In this case, we need to check that they have not been unconfigured by an incorrect shutdown.
Another possibility is that there is a kind of damaged file in the WhatsApp Voice Notes folder. A solution would therefore be to connect the cell phone to the computer and Delete WhatsApp Voice Notes folder, Nothing happens to delete it, because when the voice memos work again, this folder will be created automatically.
SD memory problems
We continue with a very common problem that mainly affects old phones. Voice memos may not be saved in the internal memory, but on the microSD card. And that can be a reason why they haven’t worked for us since If the microSD card does not work, voice messages can cause problems,
We recommend replacing the microSD card with another one to ensure that it does not cause the problems. You can also activate the option under Settings> Storage The internal storage and not the microSD is the standard option, Another possibility is that there is no more space in the SD memory. In this case, we recommend deleting other files in order to save enough space.
This type of problem with the microSD is easy to spot because the WhatsApp error messages usually indicate it. Say that the “Download failed‘the’Audio is not available‘or the’file does not exist‘.
Check the permissions
Our final recommendation is Check if WhatsApp has the necessary permissions, To do this, we have to go to Settings> Applications> WhatsApp> Permissions> Microphone. If it is not checked, we cannot send voice memos, although we can receive them.
These have been our tips for trying to solve your voice mail problems. It is also possible that the trick of bringing your mobile phone closer to listen to it through the handset does not work. This is because some phones do not have a proximity sensor. Whatever your situation is, we leave the comments open so that you can discuss with everyone how you have been able to fix it.
