You will need to download the audio to your device and then reupload it to Whats App

Click on the three ...'s top right
Click on 'Export' or 'Save to Camera Roll' (or similar).

Export may also give you option to send to WhatsApp.

Start in WhatsApp and use the plus sign to attach a file (choose Document). Don't start in Dropbox or you'll only get a link to the file.

You'll need to open Dropbox in Safari browser (not the Dropbox app) on your iPhone, then download the file and then finally you can attach it in Whatsapp.

Hi, I followed this advice but it says it’s unable to save to my camera roll. It also only send the information as a link to WhatsApp and not the photos. Does anyone know how to resolve this please?
