WhatsApp, the popular instant messaging application, has decided to take its fame a notch further! Already available in almost all the leading mobile operating systems, WhatsApp was founded in the year 2009. It went to become an instant success from the very day of its official launch. Now with more than 300 million active users throughout the globe, WhatsApp has broken itself from just the text-based chats and has introduced voice messaging feature.
While the major rivals of WhatsApp (WeChat, Facebook Messenger and BBM) are already equipped with the voice messaging service, this step can be considered as a strategic move from WhatsApp to strengthen its hold on its humongous fan base. It will also help the app to reach places with lower rate of literacy, and people who find it hard to type messages.
Let us look at the way how this new voice messaging feature of WhatsApp work on different phones.
As the video suggests, recording your voice is super easy. All a user have to do is single tap to start the recording, and hold it as long as he wants to speak. The best thing about this new feature is that there is no limit on the length of voice messages till now.
The developers of the app are still not thinking of launching real-time voice calls like in Blackberry BBM. All they want to do for now is bask in the glory of the newest entrant in the world of WhatsApp.
