Voice Notes With TextNow

TextNow is pleased to announce a new feature, included in our 4.34 update for Android devices: Voice Notes!

A voice note is a short recorded message you can send to your contact on your Conversation page. Here's how!

1. Tap on the conversation (or start a new conversation), and then tap and hold on the microphone button in the bottom right-hand corner.


2. When you're done your message, release the microphone button and tap the arrow to send it. 

Please note: Currently, you can only send a Voice Note to a contact that has a texting number (either TextNow or otherwise) saved for it. If your contact has no number associated with it, you will not be able to send them a Voice Note, and the option will not be available. Also, Voice Notes do not work with group texting at this time.

    Hi Amy,

    If you are having trouble playing a voicemail that you have received you will want to make sure that TextNow has the permission to access your Microphone and Storage permissions within your phone, without these permissions enabled you will not be able to retrieve or play voicemails successfully.

    If you need further assistance please email community@textnow.com.

    Hi Kaley, we can't assist you with signing into your emails, I'm afraid. You would have to reach out to your email providers' support for that.

    If you need assistance with signing into your TextNow accounts, please head over to our live chat support, found on the bottom right hand side of this page between 10am-5:30pm EST
