Edited by Grimm, Gordon, Eng, evepinky1992 and 2 others

Hello, you are watching VisiHow. This tutorial will show you how to send a voice memo through the messaging app on your iPhone 6. You will need to have iMessage or MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) messaging turned on. If you are sending the voice memo to another iPhone with iMessage enabled, the voice memo will be sent as an iMessage. If you send the voice message to a phone that is not an iPhone, or an iPhone without iMessage enabled, the voice memo will be sent as an MMS message.
