In this short guide, I will explain how you can tell if your Facebook Messenger voice messages have been seen. Currently, there is no way to know for sure if they have been listened to, but there is a workaround.
Facebook Messenger has become an essential communication tool for many people, particularly during these times of social distancing.
While sending text messages is the most common way to communicate on the platform, voice messages have also become increasingly popular.
They allow you to convey more emotion and personality in your messages, making conversations more engaging and authentic.
However, have you ever sent a voice message through Messenger and wondered if the recipient has actually listened to it? This is where understanding Facebook Messenger voice messages’ read and seen indicators comes in handy.
Hi, my name is Frankie Caruso. I am a messaging app expert and ethical hacker. Today, I am here with another amazing guide on Facebook Messenger.
In this ultimate guide, we’ll take you through everything you need to know about how to tell if your Facebook Messenger voice messages have been heard and seen.
So, if you’re ready to take your Messenger game to the next level, let’s dive in!
Understanding the different icons for read and seen indicators
Facebook Messenger uses different icons to show you when messages have been sent, delivered, and viewed. They appear to the right of the message:
: A blue circle means that your message is being sent.
: A blue circle with a checkmark means that the message has been sent.
: A blue-filled circle with a checkmark means that the message has been delivered.
: When the message has been viewed, you will see a thumbnail version of the profile picture of the person you sent it to under the message.
It’s important to keep in mind that when you send a voice message on Facebook Messenger, the recipient has the option to choose whether or not to listen to it. As a result, you may receive a read indicator even if the message has not been played.
How to know if someone has seen your voice message
When you send a voice message on Facebook Messenger, you may want to know if the recipient has seen it. This can help you to know if they are actively engaged in the conversation and if you need to follow up with them. To know if someone has seen your voice message, look for the blue circle with a profile picture inside.
If the recipient has seen your voice message, the blue circle with a profile picture inside will be displayed next to the message.
If they haven’t seen it yet, the blue circle with a white checkmark inside will be displayed. If you see the blue circle with a profile picture inside, you can be sure that the recipient has seen your message.
It’s important to note that just because someone has seen your voice message doesn’t mean that they have listened to it.
It’s important to keep in mind that when you send a voice message on Facebook Messenger, the recipient has the option to play it or not.
If they choose not to play it, you may still receive a read indicator, even though they haven’t actually listened to it.
They may have simply seen the message and chosen not to listen, or they may have started listening but stopped before it finished.
Unfortunately, there is no official way to know if someone has truly listened to your voice message. You’ll need to use a workaround to determine this.
How to know if someone has listened to your voice message
At the moment, there is no guaranteed way to know if a Facebook Messenger audio message has been heard. The only thing that can be determined is if it has been “seen”.
However, there is a workaround that requires a little bit of cleverness.
If you have sent a voice message and you can see that it has been viewed but you have not received a reply, the best you can do is send another message with an excuse.
You can send an audio note and ask the recipient to confirm that they are listening to it because you had an issue with your phone’s microphone and you want to make sure that voice messages are being recorded correctly.
The recipient should then either confirm or ignore your request.
If they do not respond, but both this message and the previous one have been viewed but with no reply, it means that they have listened to it but are not responding.
As mentioned at the beginning, there is no surefire way of knowing if the message was listened to. This is just a small trick that can get you close to an answer, but nothing more.
Facebook Messenger voice messages are a great way to communicate with friends, family, and colleagues. They allow you to convey more emotion and personality in your messages, making conversations more engaging and authentic.
Understanding Facebook Messenger voice messages’ read and seen indicators is important because they can help you to know if your message has been received and if you need to follow up with the recipient.
