How to Download Voice Messages on Instagram.
The Instagram app doesn’t have a built-in feature to download voice messages. However, we have a fairly simple way to solve the problem in both the Instagram app and the web version. Let’s see how.
1. Download audio messages to Instagram
If you have an Android device from Samsung, LG, or OnePlus, you already have a built-in screen recorder that records audio as well. Also, if your phone doesn’t have a built-in screen recorder, you can download the third-party AZ Screen Recorder app from the Google Play store. In this case, I will show you the steps in Google Pixel 3 running Android 11.f
First open your screen capture settings and enable system audio recording. This will mute the external microphone and record all system sounds.
Now just log in or open your Instagram account and switch to direct message. Now, before pressing the play button, open the screen recorder and start recording your screen. When you are finished listening to all audio, stop recording. That’s it, now you can play it on your local storage anytime and share it with your friends.
Chances are, you might want to convert the video file to audio. Don’t worry, you can convert audio instantly as well. Just download the video to audio converter app and convert the file to mp3.
2. Download Instagram Voice Messages to the web
I’m sure most of you are using Instagram for mobile. However, if you are a person like me who enjoys the benefits of scheduling and posting messages from a PC, this method will probably help you upload and listen to your Instagram voice messages. Unlike the first method, you don’t need to record anything and there is no problem converting it to mp3. For this method, we are going to use the Instagram Voice Downloader browser extension, which allows you to download voice messages with one click. Let’s see how to do it.
First, open your Chrome browser and search for Instagram Voice Downloader on Google. You can also find the extension in the Chrome Web Store.
To add an extension to your browser, click the Add to Chrome button in the upper right corner of the extension’s page. Wait a moment and let the extension download and install automatically.
After successful installation, you will see an icon in the upper right corner of your browser You can also right-click to open the extension window and uninstall it if you no longer need it.
Now open the Instagram network and enter your login details. Once you are signed in, switch to the chat from which you want to download voice messages. You will see a black download icon below each entry. Click on it to download any specific voicemail. You can do this for any Instagram chat.
Note that you may have to replay the recording once or refresh the page if there is no download option in the chat window.
After clicking on the download button. Audio will open in a new tab. Select the icon with three vertical dots and click the download button. This is it. You can now find the file in the download prompt below or download to your local hard drive.

So, these were two simple mobile and PC methods to help you save Instagram voice messages. Honestly, I wait a week or so, if not very urgent, and then download all the voicemails at once to my computer. This way I may not convert them to mp3 every time on the phone. But, of course, you can choose the one that suits you best. We should be using these workarounds for now, but I hope Instagram has its own option for this. Until then, I hope you have a good time talking.
