How do I change my voice on Android?

Android users may want to change their voice for several reasons, including:

Whatever the reason, Android provides multiple options for users to easily change their voice.

Check Android Version

Before downloading any third-party apps, check which version of Android your device is running to see if it has built-in voice changing features. You can view your Android version under Settings > System > About phone. Newer versions of Android (12 and 13) have voice changing apps included, per the Android history.

For example, Android 12 introduced built-in microphone effects to alter your voice in real-time when making calls or recording video, including pitch adjustment and adding resonant, bright, clarity, and vocal TV show effects. Android 13 expanded on this with additional voice options and greater control over customizing your voice.

So if you have Android 12 or newer, explore the built-in sound and microphone effects first before downloading any additional apps.

Download Third-Party Apps

There are many third-party voice changer apps available for Android that can easily let you change your voice in real-time. Some of the top recommended apps include:

  • Voice Changer with Effects ()
  • Voice Changing Apps ()
  • Voice Master – Change Voice ()

These apps provide various voice changing options like changing your pitch, applying effects like echo and reverb, and allowing you to record your modified voice. Many of them are also able to operate in real-time so you can use your new voice in calls or recordings.

Install Desired App

If the voice changing app you want to use is not available on the Google Play Store, you may need to install an APK file instead. An APK file contains the app code and resources needed to install the app on your Android device.

To install an APK file for a voice changer app:

  1. Download the APK file for the app from a reputable source online. Be careful to avoid malware.
  2. On your Android device, go to Settings > Security and enable “Install Unknown Apps.” This allows you to install apps from outside of the Play Store.
  3. Open the file manager app on your device and locate the downloaded APK file.
  4. Tap the APK file to begin the installation process. Agree to any permission prompts.
  5. The app will install. You can then open it from your device’s app drawer.

Be sure to disable “Install Unknown Apps” when finished for security reasons. Some voice changing apps available as APKs include Voice Changer, Voice Modifier, and VoiceMaster.

Grant Microphone Permission

The voice changer app needs access to your device’s microphone to be able to modify your voice on calls and recordings. After installing the app, you’ll need to enable the microphone permission explicitly.

To grant microphone access on Android:

  1. Go to your phone’s Settings app.
  2. Tap Apps or App Manager.
  3. Select the voice app.
  4. Tap Permissions.
  5. Turn on the switch next to Microphone to enable.

You’ll likely see a popup asking you to confirm allowing microphone access. Tap “Allow” to enable the app to access the mic.[1] If microphone access isn’t enabled, the voice app won’t be able to modify your voice during calls or recordings.

Select a Voice

The Voice Changer-MagicMic app provides an extensive variety of voice options to transform your voice. You can access the following voice types:

  • Female voices: Chipmunk, Pepper, Tina, etc.
  • Male voices: Frank, Barry, Reaper, etc.
  • Celebrity voices: Jack Sparrow, Darth Vader, Simon Cowell, etc.
  • Cartoon voices: Mickey Mouse, Squidward, Pikachu, etc.
  • Baby voices: Boy baby, Girl baby

In the voice effects section of the app, you can browse through over 200 different voice options. Each voice avatar has a distinct timbre and style to transform your speech. For example, the “Frank” male voice is low and raspy, while the “Tina” female voice is high-pitched.

You can tap on any voice to get a brief audio preview before selecting it. Once you’ve found your desired new speaking voice, you simply need to tap on it to activate the voice change.

Test the New Voice

After selecting a new voice in your voice changer app, it’s important to test it out. Try a short test recording to get a sense of how the voice sounds and ensure it works properly before proceeding.

In the app, find the record function and press it. Say a short phrase to test the voice, like “Testing 1, 2, 3”. Stop the recording and play it back to hear how your selected voice sounds. Pay attention to the pitch, tone, and overall sound quality.

If the voice does not sound like you expected or hoped, go back and select a different voice option. Test another recording until you find a synthetic voice you are satisfied with. The right voice should be clearly audible and match the kind of vocal sound you want for your recordings or speech.

Change Voice Settings

Once you’ve selected your preferred third-party voice changer app, you can customize the voice settings, this includes adjusting pitch, tone, speed etc. to create your desired voice effect. Most voice changer apps allow you to make real-time adjustments to parameters with sliders and dials within the app interface. For example, Voicemod includes options to:

  • Increase or decrease pitch of your voice
  • Change overall tone and timbre
  • Speed up or slow down how fast you speak
  • Add audio effects like echo and reverb

Play around with the available settings until you find the voice profile you want. You can also save preset configurations for different voices that you can easily switch between.

Record and Save

Once you have selected your desired voice changer app and configured the settings, you are ready to record audio and save it. The process for recording and saving audio files may vary slightly between apps, but the general process is as follows:

There will be a Record button or icon within the app that you can tap to start recording. Speak into your device’s microphone to capture audio with your modified voice. When finished, tap the Stop button. The recording will automatically save within the app. Most apps will show your list of recordings and allow playback.

To save the recording externally:

  • Tap the Share button, usually represented by an arrow pointing outward
  • Select “Save file” or “Export”
  • You may have to grant permission for the app to access external storage
  • Choose a storage location like Downloads or an SD card
  • Name the recording file
  • Tap Save

Now you can access your voice recording files through your Android device’s file manager or music app.

Troubleshooting Common Issues

If you experience problems with voice changing apps not working properly, there are a few things you can try:

  • Check that you have granted the app microphone permissions. Go to Settings > Apps and click on the voice changer app. Make sure “Microphone” under permissions is toggled on.

  • Try toggling different voice effects on and off or adjusting voice settings like pitch within the app. Sometimes restarting the recording can fix issues.

  • Delete and reinstall the voice changer app in case the installation became corrupted. Make sure you download the app from the Play Store or other trusted source.

  • Restart your Android device to clear any memory issues preventing the app from working properly. You can also try switching between Wi-Fi and mobile data.

  • Check for app or Android software updates. The latest updates may resolve bugs affecting voice changer apps.

  • Try a different voice changer app like Voice Changer with Effects ( which works reliably for many users.
