    Hello guys, im using a galaxy note 4. I just bought this 4 days ago and I know having ringtone , notification sounds going through your speaker instead of headphones is "normal". Well, while i was using messenger, when i hear a voice message, it comes out of the headphones too. The jack was right in. It even says "earphones connected". Everything was normal. Like listening to music , playing games. Except that voice message.. I search everywhere for answers but nothing seems to work.. Every voice message even my own is coming out in speakers not headphones..

    Does anyone experience the same thing in their note 4? Please i need answers.. I dont know what to do. This even sounds so rare😟😣

    Hi there,

    I seem to be having the same problem, except I'm using a HTC Desire 626. I've tried looking everywhere for a solution and tried a whole bunch of different things (restarting my device, logging out and back in, using different headphones etc) but I think it may just be a fault with the messenger app and not the headphones/device?
    The main problem for me is, I was listening to a voice message my friend sent me and it's 1am here in Scotland and the message played full blast through my phone speaker, which of course, everyone else in the house was unamused by and when I tried to turn it down it was turning down the volume for the call and SMS volume... Could you please let me know ASAP if you find a fix to this? Many thanks πŸ™‚βœŒ

    Welcome to Android Central! That's odd--notification tones should still go through wired headphones, not the main speaker, assuming the plug is in all the way. Make sure you feel or hear it click into place. Also, make sure there isn't any debris in the jack--use a can of compressed air to blow it out.

    Do other things like music, the audio from a video, and sound effects from games play over the headphones normally?

    Hello this is my account and my question xD. Yes. They are all normal. Just the voice message from facebook. I even tried on a different earphone. It still comes out in speaker. I was so pissed cause i cant find any solutions. I even try to download soundabout, headphones connect, etc. Nothing works.

    Are you referring to me? If you have a question, it's best to search on the forums first to see if your question is already being discussed in another thread (and join that discussion), or create a new thread with your question.

    This problem started happening yesterday for me and I am using a Sony Xperia Z5...and on everything g else the audio goes through my earphones I have in most of the time but when I try listen to a voice message on Facebook it goes out on my speakers instead of my earphones and the volume is really loud. This is really irritating me.
    If you know a way to fix this please notify me.

    It sounds like it could be a bug with FB Messenger. Send an email to the developer to let them know.

    I also have the Z5 and the same problem occurs. It seems like the latest version of FB messenger has been changed so that the voice messaging uses the In-Call volume rather than the speaker/headphone volume. This is ridiculous because I CANNOT mute in-call volume on the Z5 (minimum volume level is 1/6)
