This question already has an answer here:

Is it possible to download or save a voice recording sent via facebook messenger? I can't find ANY reference on Google or elsewhere as to how to do this. Seems if you record it from iPhone (Messenger app), it must be stored somewhere - I was hoping it would auto-save to Voice Memos app, but no such luck.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


You can't do this on your iPhone itself, but you can on messenger.com on a Mac.

  1. Open messenger.com in Safari and navigate to the voice recording.
  2. Open the Web Inspector from the Develop menu (enable from Preferences → Advanced) and choose the Network tab.
  3. Play the voice recording.
  4. A new row will be added to the Network tab. Double-click the file and it will download.
