    On my other phone I used gboard and I had the ability to push the microphone to do voice to text or I could hold it in and do a voice recorded message that would then send to whoever was on my screen for a message and they would be able to listen to my voice recorded message. I am no longer able to do that on my new 1 ultra 5G note 20 and I don't know why and I would like to know what I need to do to enable that to make it happen. Just to clarify yes I have a microphone yes it works perfectly for talk to text it is no longer recording a voice message to be played by a 1

    Welcome to Android Central! Are you using Samsung Messages? If so, then do you see the Voice Message icon at the lower right, next to the text entry field? It looks like a bunch of vertical lines from a spectrum analyzer. Long-press that, and it should prompt you to record your voice message. I circled it in this image:

    Did you look at my screenshot? To record a voice message, don't use the microphone associated with the keyboard app. Long-press the icon to the right of the text entry field of the Messages app.

    As you can see from screen shot I'm using Gboard and there are 2 microphone the one I pointed to is for voice message, if it's not working then clear data and force stop your message app.

    To clarify -- the mic icon you're pointing to is for the Voice Message function for the Google Messages app, not Samsung Messages. So the OP needs to clarify which messaging app they're using (I was assuming it was Samsung Messages, which is the screenshot I shared).

    Yeah sorry I'm using the Google/Samsung collaboration app that come in newer Samsung device. But what I mentioned clear data and force stop the message app still applies if the voice record is not working.

    Yep, and we need to make sure there's no confusion between the mic icon that's part of the Gboard app, and the mic icon (or that spectrum analyzer icon in the Samsung Messages app) in the messaging app that's specifically for the voice message feature.

    Yes I saw it and that's for Samsung keyboard I use Google gboard it's different

    But if I'm not using Samsung and I'm only using gboard what does it make a difference to do anything to the Samsung app I'm not using it

    I mean I'm not the most technically inclined obviously. But it seems to me if I'm not using an app why would I need to fix it to make the other app work it doesn't make sense to me so please explain

    You can hold power and volume down simultaneously there are other ways also but stick to this for now

    Yeah it's frustrating I don't know why it has to be repeated several times to the same people honestly you have to read
    I'll ask for forgiveness but please read I mean I'm having so much issues with this brand new phone all of a sudden and I don't get it I just don't get it the volume doesn't work right doesn't matter if it's Bluetooth or not speaker or phone media volume it doesn't matter it's sometimes it's loud sometimes it's not and I don't do anything to adjust it it just randomly goes up and down. I'm having issues with the keyboard not only can I not do the recording an audio message but when I do do talk to text it never wants to record the first word that I say I have to go back and add it then the whole sticker Center garbage I'm going to just it's this is a brand new phone you're right I'm frustrated had it a few months and it's acting worse than my note 9 that I had for 2 years

    Which message app your using ?
    Your keyboard dictate the voice to text features, your message apps does the voice record .


    Go to settings>general mamgement>make sure everything there is Google , also clear data and force stop your Gboard

    Once again, here's the screenshot I posted for the Samsung Messages app, because I assume you're using the Samsung Messages app to try to record a Voice Message, correct?

    I am unable to record a voice message from my keyboard on my Samsung Android Note 20 ultra 5G-screenshot_20210801-103308_messages.jpg

    Look at the lower right. Do you see that icon that's circled? It looks like a bunch of squiggly lines. That's what you have to long-press (not short-tap, but long-press) in order to record a Voice Message that then gets sent via the text message app to the recipient, who can then play it on their text messaging app. Do not use the microphone icon that is part of the keyboard. That is for dictation only, and will transcribe anything you say into text. I did not include a screenshot of the keyboard in that image because you don't need the keyboard to record a Voice Message.

    Please let me know if this is not clear.
