Audio messages are a great way to stay connected with your friends, family and colleagues. Whether you’re sending a quick “hello” or sharing an important event, audio messages can be a great way to communicate in today’s digital world.

But where do saved audio messages go? The answer depends on the platform you are using. Let’s take a look at how differet platforms handle audio messages.

On Apple devices, like iPhones and iPads, when you send an audio message, it is saved in the Messages app. Depending on the settings that were chosen when creating the message, it may stay in the conversation history until deleted or expire ater two minutes. If it expires, it will be removed from both the sender and recipient’s conversation history. In addition to being saved in Messages, some users may also have their voice memos appear in their iTunes library if they have enabled this feature.

Android devices handle audio messages differently depending on which messaging platform is being used. For example, if you are using Google Hangouts for your messaging, then any audio messages will be stored in Google Drive. On other messaging platforms such as Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp, your audio messages will remain within thse respective apps until deleted by either party involved in the conversation.

It is important to remember that even though most messaging apps offer some type of expiring message feature, all audio messages should still be treated with caution and privacy as they can still be recovered even after they have been deleted from a conversation history or othrwise expired according to the settings chosen when creating them.
