Hi Guys,

I am using a Visual Voice-mail app on my S4 but I need to send a professional pre-recorded voice mail greeting, directly to the app.

The app will 'only' either record from the built in mic or from an external earplug / mic, neither of which are any use to me.

Does anyone have any idea how I could 'send' it directly to the app, for instance is there another app out there that would emulate the internal mic, i.e. trick the phone into thinking it was recording from the mic when it was actually being fed a voice file..??

Cheers for any ideas or help.

Tried this many years ago with my voice recording PIM... you'd need a male-male 3.5mm jack cable and another player. Just connect this player as external microphone, but be careful with volume to not burn the input...

Hi, tried that with a TRRS jack but couldn't get it to register as a mic, only as earphones..??

presumably you'd need 4-pin jacks on both sides, and "player only" device. Otherwise, phone may recognize it exactly as it happened.
