Tips On Voice Messages
Ideally, your message should not be longer than a minute. If you tend to have a longer message the app will automatically cut off the message. Once you send the audio files across they will remain forever similar to other social media platforms.
Instagram allows you send voice messages to your friends and groups. You can keep the voice message between you and the recipient. This can be achieved by swiping the clasp above the voice message during the recording to the right. This will disable your friend from forwarding the message to others.
