How to download audio files on Facebook Messenger [Guide]

People share photos, videos as well as audio messages on several social media apps, the popular ones include WhatsApp, Instagram, and Facebook Messenger. Even though apps like WhatsApp offers you to download all the media automatically, the Facebook Messenger app, by default, doesn’t save media automatically, you need to manually download them one by one.
