How to record your voice in Windows 11

If you want to record your own voice or spatial audio, you can do so in Windows 11 through the voice recorder app.

The voice recorder app is an app with basic functionality. There are hardly any features present to edit the audio. All you can do is record audio, such as audio from the room you are in or your own voice. To record this audio, you need a microphone connected to your Windows 11 computer.

In addition to having your microphone connected, you also need to have microphone access enabled in Windows 11 to record your voice through the voice recorder app. Here’s how the voice recorder app works in Windows 11.
