How do I send voice messages with Whatsapp?

The option to send voice messages was already a part of the Whatsapp software but the developers have made the option more clear in a recent update.  Through voice messaging you can record a spoken message and send this to a contact or a group. In the chat window an option will appear to play the sample.

If a contact has listened to the voice message the microphone in the message will turn blue.
