Sending a voice audio in the comments section (browser and Desktop)

My team and I would find it enormoulsy useful do be able to record a description directly into an open task when using the app as easy as in what’s app or other smartphone messenger applications. Is there any possibility to create this feature soon? :slight_smile:


I will second you Leni. It makes life so difficult to write comprehensive descriptions specially when some of the team members are remote. We usually then either send WhatsApp voice notes or ask the team member to call us when he/she reaches that task.


This option could be so helpful for dyslexic and visually impaired workers. This could be a reasonable accommodation. I have to use slack for other things and they don’t have this feature either.

I found this: maybe works:

This feature would be so useful. Some features when users request, it’s not that complicated to add, but Asana just doesn’t want to add it.

Why you so stubborn Asana Product Team? :stuck_out_tongue: it;s already 2 years old task.

I fully support all of you who want voice recordings / audio messages in Asana Descriptions and Comments! It has become such a useful way to communicate for example in Whatsapp. Voice messages in for example descriptions would be tremendously benefitial for our company! We would love to combine the text in a description that outlines the scope of work / nature of the task with the “Here’s what we have to do and why” background explanation in a voice message.

Would like to see the ability to leave a voice message to a task or comment like Facebook messenger. Simple mic touch and release

+1 with API support :stuck_out_tongue:

Now all the messaging apps “Telegram, What’s app, wechat” supports voice message. Although asana is not a messaging app, but adding a voice ICON, and we can record and send the voice note is not too complicated thing to develop. Hopefully asana will add this feature soon.

New here with asana is it possible to directly make a voice task for someone? Sorry for my bad English is

Welcome :wave:
There is no such thing as a voice task (yet?). However you could record yourself and attach the file to a task you assign… You can also look if there are voice recording tools that have an Asana integration.

Could you do that?

Hi @Gian_Pedolin and welcome to the Forum!

If you’re using an iOS device you should look into our Siri integration, and if you’re on Android, have a look at this thread where forum members have offered some solution :slight_smile:

Hope this helps!

Good call for the Siri integration, I did not think about it. Not sure it would work for a long spoken task though…

I’ve been following voice input requests since 2016. It’s 2019 now. Wunderlist has had natural language inputs for years. I’m sorry but I’m tired of hearing that “it’s on our list” I don’t believe you are paying attention to user requests.


Has Asana created a solution for this yet?!

Hi @Ashley6 and welcome to the forum!

Yes, Asana recently introduced a new voice task feature on iOS - for details, see:

No word on whether they’re also working on this for Android…

anything yet for android?

Maybe this post should be merged with Sending a voice note in the comments section (browser and Desktop) which has more votes than this post.

Dear Asana team,

Do we have this feature? Almost 4 years since this thread started.

I can see ‘Record a Video’ option. Where is ‘Record an Audio’? Many would be comfortable leaving an audio msg instead of Video.

Are yo having it at least part of the roadmap?
