Facebook has brought in a remarkable phase shift to its mobile space with the addition of voice message on the Android and iOS Messenger apps. The update adds the ability to record our voice upto one minute length and can be sent to our contacts.
The entire conservation is displayed in the sound waveform view where we can stream it to hear it. The file is also accessible via the web. Tapping and holding the red record button will activate the mode for you to record your voice message. We are not certain if people use voice message more often, but sure it seems to be a better replacement for lengthy typing tasks, and we couldn’t deny the fact the there will be some occasions where people prefer voice over simple texts.
Rather than hassling on third party apps, this update surely is a relief to do voice while staying on Facebook itself.
Reportedly, another big step they are taking is on the Voice over IP league. They are on the testing phase for implementing peer to peer VoIP calls through the app without costing a penny. The feature is said to be only requires a data plan or WiFi connectivity.
The pilot program is currently taking place for the Canadian iOS users. And, presumably the feature will be launching in the United States and European regions soon after the testing process is done.
Canadian iOS users will notice the “i” button on Messenger app where you can get the calling option. You need to update the app to the latest version for the service.
