WhatsApp: Meaning of blue and green voice messages

Question by Guest | Last update on 2021-04-06 | Created on 2016-01-18

I have found today, that obviously, there are different types of voice messages in Whats App having different colors.

Next to the voice message, there is displayed a small microphone. I have messages marked with a blue microphone, others are marked with green microphones. Accordingly, also the slider for the message playback is either colored green or blue.

Can someone tell me what those colors mean? Is this some thing like an ordering or sorting of WhatsApp or what can that mean?

Depending on whether you have already listened to the voice message or not, the message is shown in another color:

New messages are green, as soon as you have heard or played a message, it becomes blue.

So, in other words, the color is an indicator of whether you have already played the voice message.

It means the voice note was sent to someone else then forwarded to you.
