The best voice-changing apps

These voice-changing apps will have you punking friends and family like a pro

If you enjoy pranking your friends and family, but you’re no good at disguising your voice, then a voice-changing app is what you need. We’ve already talked about how to block calls and how to record calls on your iPhone or Android phone, so today we’re looking at the best voice-changer apps. Unfortunately, finding voice-changing apps that are worth your time is far from easy. There are more apps available for Android than there are for iOS, but many in the Google Play Store are either packed with ads or don’t do what they promise.

We have sifted through both Apple’s and Google’s app stores and found five of the best voice-changing apps, so you can channel your inner Bart Simpson.

Snapchat

Snapchat is more famous for filters that change your appearance, but there are voice filters as well, which you can access by tapping the loudspeaker icon at the bottom left after recording a video. There are various options to play around with, so experiment and see what suits you best. You may already have this popular video chat app on your phone, but if not, it’s available for Android and iOS.

Best Voice Changer

It’s a bold move to proclaim your app the best at what it does, but Best Voice Changer is so confident, it puts that claim right there in its name. While it’s hard to pick just one voice changer as the best, this app at least makes a compelling case with a fairly clean UI and a wide range of features. The app lets you record voice files, and you can also import files you already have. Once you’ve loaded a file, you have a variety of vocal effects to slather on including making yourself sound like a robot, an alien, a bee, and more. Some of the effects are lackluster — the “Old Radio” filter ended up producing a wall of noise — but the ones that work do so as expected. The app is free, but does involve some ads, although they don’t take up too much space.

Android

Call Voice Changer

If you’re specifically looking for an app that can change your voice during a phone call, then Call Voice Changer could be the one for you. This app allows you to change the pitch of your voice during a call and offers lots of sound effects. Before you commit to a purchase, you can use it in demo mode, which allows you to listen to yourself and find out what other people will hear. On top of that, you get 2 minutes free so that you can try the app out on someone before you commit to purchasing more minutes. The prices range from $1 for 5 minutes all the way up to $40 for 170 minutes. This app is available for both iOS and Android.

Android iOS

Funny Call

This is another voice-changing app that allows you to modify your voice during calls. The interface is a little more confusing than Call Voice Changer, but once you get the hang of it, it’s easy to use. There’s no demo call option, but it does let you record your voice to test the voice effects. Half of the effects are free, but you will have to pay for the rest. Sadly, the app has the most intrusive kind of ads, which take up the entire screen and force you to play a game before you can close them. Thankfully, they don’t come up too frequently. You get 30 seconds for free, and then prices range from $1 for 1 minute up to $20 for 64 minutes.

iOS

Voice Changer

This app is packed with a strange collection of different voices to try including a robot, duck, alien, and chipmunk. You can apply the effect as you record or open up an audio file and apply it after the fact. The interface is pretty dated, there’s no option to use it during a call, and it does have ads, but it’s also free and it’s still being updated.
