How to insert, upload and post a WhatsApp audio or voice memo on Instagram Stories
There are different platforms and social networks to publish our content, be it photos, videos and even hold conversations with different users around the world. In this article we will show you how to insert, upload and publish an audio or voice memo from WhatsApp on Instagram Stories.
What are WhatsApp and Instagram? And how are they related to each other?
Today will be taken into account the use of the instant messaging application “WhatsApp” which is intended for the use of chats, to talk between users who have the so-called “smartphones” or latest generation mobile phones, but not only up there.
This application can also be used on our computers, with or without having a registered phone number. For now there are many versions for different operating systems, among them is available for Android, iPhone, Mac and Windows devices.
This application allows to send text messages, unlimited photos and even voice notes that allow us greater ease and flow in daily conversations, especially if your telephone company has failures when making calls conventionally. Currently these voice messages are used in a sister application called Instagram.
This application called Instagram is also used to send messages, but its main use is to share content, be it images or videos, and it also has a large series of options to edit said content and make it more attractive, with the In order to attract more users to the account you want to promote , which can be personal or used by your company to share your content.
Both social networks or applications have many options in common, one of them is the famous “Stories”, which you can have more visits. They are used to publish images or videos temporarily in a period of 24 hours or less, according to the discretion of the person.
That is why one of the techniques that are currently used either to share opinions or simply as a reason for humor, is to use the audio notes sent to WhatsApp which have a limit of up to 15 minutes (time that is rarely used, since the average is less than 3 minutes) and share them in the stories of both the same application and Instagram. Here we will show you how to do it.
The action of sharing WhatsApp voice messages on Instagram can be done in two ways depending on the device we have, since some come with the option natively, while in others it is necessary to download an application.
Place voice memos in Stories from Apple devices.
In the iOS system this option is defined natively, you only need to enter “settings” , then “control centers” to be able to activate the option “screen recording” . Once activated, you just have to scroll the screen down and press “start”, once pressed, it should only play the voice message.
When you want to finish, wait for the audio to end or simply stop it, press the “stop” button and wait for the audio to be presented in video format in the gallery of the cell phone. When this happens it will be available to be used in Instagram Stories.
Place voice memos in Stories from Android devices.
Uploading this type of content from Android is very similar to the process performed from an iOS device, only that Android does not have the option natively, so it is necessary to download an application to record screens. One of the examples used would be to download “Xrecorder” .
Once installed on your device, enter it and go to “settings” , then similar to the previous one, press “control center” already within it alone you press the + symbol for “record screen” .
You touch “start recording ” and you go immediately to WhatsApp, where you will play the audio you want to publish, once finished you go back to “control center” and press the red button to end screen recording.
You just have to go to our gallery. Then we go to Instagram and press “your story”, located in the upper left, we look for the video with the voice note and we simply share it to the world.
