    The microphone key is unlit. Won't work if receiving person does not have an iPhone
    I have iPhone 6Plus.
    My son has a fancy new android phone & sends me voice messages but I can not reply with voice message.
    Why not?

    Welcome to iMore! There are 2 microphone options in messages. The one at the bottom is the dictation mic. It should be available with SMS. It should work with those who don't have an iPhone. It's this one:

    The other mic is for sending audio text messages. It only works with iMessage between 2 iPhones. It does not work with SMS. The other person would need an iPhone. It's this one:
