How to fix Snapchat not recording audio issue

To fix the issue of Snapchat not recording audio, begin by determining if the issue is specific to Snapchat. Start by opening different apps and testing whether they can record audio. In case these apps are also unable to record audio, the problem likely lies with your phone's microphone, rather than with Snapchat itself.

If the microphone works in other apps but not on Snapchat, this suggests that the issue is likely with the Snapchat app itself or its settings. Here are some steps you can take to troubleshoot and potentially resolve the issue:

  • Check app permissions: Go to your phone's settings, find Snapchat in the list of apps, and check the microphone permissions.
  • Update the app: Make sure you have the latest version of Snapchat installed. Updates often include bug fixes that can resolve issues like these.
  • Restart the app: Close Snapchat completely (swipe it away from your recent apps list) and reopen it. Sometimes a simple restart can resolve minor glitches.
  • Restart your phone: Restarting your device can also fix temporary software issues that might be affecting the app's performance.

Hopefully, one of the suggestions mentioned will resolve the issue with Snapchat not recording audio. If, however, you've tried these steps and are still experiencing problems, consider connecting a pair of earphones with a built-in microphone to your phone and start recording and temporarily resolving the issue.
