One of the most popular features in messaging applications is voice memos. From a few seconds to long minutes (we all have a friend like that), we can communicate with this function. However, a voice file takes up space in our internal storage, which, in addition to being automatically savedIt can be a problem if our cell phone goes right into internal memory.
We’re going to show you where audio files are stored on WhatsApp and Telegram so that you can keep them located at all times and can delete them or back them up to the cloud or any physical format.
Where audios are stored on WhatsApp
In both cases (speaking of Android), WhatsApp and Telegram, we will use a file browser. All phones come with one, so just use the one that comes installed, or download the one you want from Play Store. Unless you have moved data to the microSD card, the path is as follows for WhatsApp.
- Internal memory
- WhatsApp Voice Notes
In this folder we find the voice notes that have been sent to us. An important point here is that WhatsApp saves these files in .opus formatThis is an extension that your phone most likely will not be able to open without an application that can read these files.
Where Telegram audios are stored
In the case of Telegram, we have to do practically the same thing. We’re going to use a file browser to access the next route:
- Internal memory
- Audio Telegram
In the case of Telegram, files are saved in .ogg extensionThe format of the phone is a very simple one, and most phones can read it easily.
What to do in the case of iOS
In the case of iOS, we cannot access via file browser the internal folders of the applicationsso we’re going to manage the audio files from the application itself.
From this section we can see what the voicemails occupyIf you want to know exactly how many there are, click on ’empty’ after making your selection.
In the case of Telegram the process is similar, although here there is an advantage: the cloud. Files we delete from Telegram can be re-downloadedso you can access them even if you have deleted them from your phone’s internal memory.
