Downloading Dictations From Your Phone

You have an Android smartphone, and you’re wondering if you can manually download dictations from the Philips Voice Recorder app. The answer is yes!

Why Download?

Sometimes, it may be necessary to locate the individual dictation files created by the Philips Voice Recorder app and download them.

For instance:

  • You want to uninstall or upgrade the Philips Dictation Recorder app, but would like to retrieve any existing dictations first.
  • You are having issues sending dictations and need a way to get them off of your smartphone.
  • The app crashed and your dictations are stuck in the Philips app.


How to Download Dictations From Your Phone

STEP 1: Go to the “My Files” app on your Android device and tap on “Device Storage/All.” The name may be different, depending on which version of Android you have. For instance, in Android 7.0, it’s called “Internal Storage.”
