Well try this:

Step 1: Open this link m.facebook.com/messages in PC.
Step 2: Open the conversation to download the audio message
Step 3: Right click on the audio bar near the "play" button and select "Copy audio address"
Step 4: Paste the address in the address bar of your browser
You will see the file getting downloaded to your PC.

I also tried this method some days back, worked for me.

I have the same issue, and I'm surprised that there's not more online about it - I have yet to find a solution. The file downloads fine on PC - that's not the issue. It's if you try to open the file via the Messenger app, on your phone. Thanks in advance for any help with this problem, as it is very annoying.
