You can record sound inside the preinstalled OneNote app. If you need to you can sync the recording to your PC using the OneNote desktop application and save it there (right click -> save as...). Windows 10 for phones will actually include a dedicated sound recording app.

According to this Microsoft support article Lumia phones support the AHJ standard, except the Lumia 920 and 820 which also support OMTP. The article makes no mention of newer models, so I pinged @LumiaHelp on Twitter to check if it's still up-to-date. They confirmed that it is, and that the Lumia 950 supports AHJ headsets. (Update: unfortunately the @...

Here are a two things you can try: Stream files from your PC to your phone: This can be done for example using one of the DLNA / UPNP players (e.g. Smart Player) in the store.

Yes, there is one. I too faced the same problem and at last I got one. Go on the store and look for Mini Recorder Free. It works for me and I do love this app.

Unfortunately it is not possible at this time per the information on the WhatsApp FAQ.

This is finally possible (see UserVoice update here). Just add your audio file (<30k) to the Ringtones folder on your device. It should now show up under the Custom section when selecting your new notification sound.

I am no expert on my lumia 610 using windows 7.8 but i do listen to a lot of audiobooks and I can tell you is as long as I listen to only one file I can stop it and resume it as often as I like without losing my place, but do remember that to listen to audiobooks on a windows phone you have to convert m4b files to mp3 as the m4b is an itunes format and is ...

There is no volume control on the headphones, so it is just as simple as using the volume control on the phone, at the top right.

The recordig is being saved within your OneNote document so there's no way to access it through the file explorer (neither on the phone nor when conencting it to the pc). When your document is synced to the cloud you can either download your audio file by opening the web-version of OneNote or by extracting it through the desktop version (for both right-...

This is a general behavior. When the app runs under a locked screen, it could consume power outside of the user's control and could add to their data costs without their awareness. So the app must remain idle while the phone screen is locked. And that is why we see "Resuming..." when we lock the phone while using an app(i.e. WhatsApp, WeChat, Voxer, etc.) ...

Do not reset your phone! This warning will ALWAYS show up as far as I'm aware. It seems to not happen so often anymore after the WP8.1 update. Also, if you do not restart your phone very often, it should not happen as much. It seems to just happen a few times after startup.

The Voice Recorder app in Windows 10 Mobile does not allow recording while the phone is locked. It pauses the recording. Currently I don't know of any apps that will allow you to do this, though I will try to look into the API's and see if it's possible, and update this answer to include that.

The first thing to check would be if your phone manufacturer even claims to have included aptX support. I'm not seeing anything about it on GSM Arena, though they do mention it for other phones that have it: http://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_lumia_820-4968.php And on the aptX website the only Lumia listed is the 630: https://www.aptx.com/products?...

Perfect Recorder app is doing the job perfectly and it's for FREE. It's still annoying that Microsoft can't make a recorder which can work when the screen is locked.

If it doesn't play on inbuilt player, try it on third party players like Moliplayer, Moli plays almost every format (45-50 formats to be exact). Give it a try, it might play.

Eventually, I was able to go to Bose and they replaced the headphones. They determined the 3.5mm audio plug was faulty.

Currently it is possible to receive/send audio clips on Whatsapp. If the audio clip is an uploaded file (such as mp3 song) then it will be saved in SDcard/Phone -> Pictures -> Whatsapp. You can also find it in Music player. The name of the file usually starts with "AUD" followed by date and time. Any recordings made from the Whatsapp will be saved in SDcard/...

First, try a soft reset. If that doesn't help, you should contact Nokia Care.

In oder to get podcasts into your podcast app you actually have to subscribe to one, either by searching our by entering a feed. You still can listen to the mp3s though the music app. It might be easier though to try one of the audio book apps from the store - I think those offer the functionality you're looking for.

Currently you can not save the audio to your phone. Maybe this will be possible in a future update since we now got the Files application.

Try VLC For Windows Phone. It plays .flac formats, and most media formats
