New iOS 9 Feature: Send voicemail as an audio file

Posted on Updated on


For years I’ve been annoyed that there was no way to send a voicemail from my iPhone to my wife’s iPhone. With iOS 9, it looks like there will finally be a way!

Here’s how it works:

  1. You receive a new voicemail.
  2. Open the Phone app -> Voicemail tab.
  3. Tap the voicemail you’d like to send and it will expand to show additional buttons.
  4. Tap the Share Sheet button (the box with the arrow pointing up).
  5. The share sheet opens with options for sending the voicemail as an audio file to Messages, Mail, Notes, Voice Notes, and possibly other Apps.

Disclaimer: iOS 9 is only at Beta 1 at this point, so there is a chance it could be removed for the final release, but let’s hope it makes it into the final iOS 9 release!

Big thanks to Bearxor on the MacRumors forums for discovering this new feature!

    Is this feature on the 6s only, or on the 6 as well, if updated to iOS 9?

      It’s on the 6 as well (and I think any iPhone that supports iOS 9)!
