Facebook Messenger now supports Voice Messaging, we go hands-on
When users select the Record Voice option, a Red ‘Record’ toggle appears (as below) which has to be pushed and held while you record your message and once you are done, you just have to release it and it will be sent to your friend. But if you are unhappy with what you have recorded, you just have to slide it off to cancel the message.
While there was a rumor recently that Facebook of interested in buying WhatsApp, the news was rubbished but with the introduction of the Voice Messaging service, it seems like Facebook is going offensively against WhatsApp. WhatsApp also has the ability to let users send voice messages for up to 2 minutes. It will be interesting to see how things turn out to be between the two companies and what next does Facebook has in store for users.
