Send an audio message

You can send an audio message in Status to communicate with your contacts. You can use audio messages to share ideas and updates. Anyone in a channel, group chat or direct message (DM) can play and send audio messages.

You can record an audio message up to one minute long and send as many audio messages as you want.


Deleting an audio message in Status works as deleting any other message. Check out [Edit and delete your messages][delete-your-messages] for more information.
