I quit Snapchat several years ago and decided to get back to the app just recently since it offers a more private communication platform.
However, since I got used to Instagram or Messenger, I often use the 'Voice Message' feature, especially if my hands are busy, or what I have to say is too long to be typed out.
I was worried about using Snapchat since, from what I last remembered, Snapchat didn't have the voice notes feature.
To my surprise, it got implemented in the meantime, which made my choice a lot easier.
If you're wondering whether Snapchat has voice messages and how to use the feature, check out the step-by-step below, where I'll explain everything there is to know on the topic.

To compete with all other major social media platforms earlier this year, Snapchat implemented 'Snapchat for Web', which is free for all users worldwide. Snapchat's web version was formerly available to Premium users only.
You can log into your account, check out new snaps, customize your Bitmoji, and do nearly everything you usually do when using the Snapchat mobile version.
However, there are some limitations when using Snapchat for Web. First, users can't take screenshots, the chat section blurs completely, and you will be unable to see anything. Second, the voice memos feature is currently unavailable for the Web version. If this changes in the near future, this article will get updated. Third, sent Snaps such as videos cannot be opened using the Web version; you'll be prompted to launch the mobile app on your phone.
In addition, when using Snapchat's Desktop version, your Bitmoji will be portrayed by holding a laptop, which can signalize to your Snap buddies that you're using the web version.

Most social media platforms limit the voice messaging feature to up to 1 minute. Multiple sources mention the same limit for Snapchat; however, from what I noticed, voice messages can go a bit longer than that.
Snapchat has no official statements about the time limits to their feature, but after trying it out, it's safe to say that they can be up to 2 minutes, or maybe more.
It often happens to send voice messages to your friends, and something might slip your mind in the heat of the moment, so you wish to resend it.

Unfortunately, no, you can’t listen to a voice message on Snapchat before sending it. Similarly to all other major social media platforms, you can only hear the voice memo after hitting send.
However, if there's anything you don't like after sending the voice memo, you can always delete it, and try again. Check the steps mentioned above.
At the beginning of 2022, Snapchat released several new messaging features.
