How to send voice messages using Slack?

Looking for a solution that you can use to send a Slack voice message? 

You are at the right place. 

We will show exactly how you can do that. 

How to send voice messages using Slack?

While slack has no in-built functionality that allows you to do so, you can actually send a voice message using:

  1. Standuply 
  2. Reverbchat
  3. Loom

Sending voice messages using Slack 

If you carefully browse around Slack’s web or desktop apps, you’ll notice that you can’t really find any option that allows you to send voice messages. 

Now that you know, Slack does not have a pre-built functionality to allow you to send voice messages - here are your options. 

Using Standuply to send Slack voice messages 

This is probably the only way you can send a slack voice message without leaving the slack app. To record a voice message using Standuply, you need to first add it to your Slack workspace.

Then, go to the channel or private message where you would like to drop a private message and then type the command /voice in it. Once you do that you will be prompted to record a message on your browser. 

Once you record a message on your browser, it automatically gets sent to the channel or the private message. 

Using ReverbChat or Loom to send Slack voice messages 

Unlike Standuply, the way Reverb chat and Loom work is a little different. To use these tools, you have to use these platforms (ReverbChat or Loom’s platform) and record your voice message and then post them on Slack. 

While the voice recordings posted on Slack via Loom is just a link that someone can play, Reverbchat does a bit more. After you record a message and send it to someone, the receiver can play it right there. And, if they want they can respond back too.

You can use either of those three options to send voice messages. If you are considering voice messages you may want to check out and see how our Slack integration builds great teams.
