WhatsApp Adds Voice Messaging and Hits 300M Active Users a Month

The art of sending voice messages has taken on a new air. WhatsApp has brought this new service to its users. A lot of time and effort went into the fine tuning of this facility. And it was also made easier to use. Even limits on the length of messages were done away with. Now you may chat to your heart’s content. In the capacity of a messaging app, WhatsApp is very popular. Now WhatsApp voice messaging will be available on all of its apps on Android, iPhone, Windows Phone, Nokia, Blackberry and Symbian. The voice messaging service is not exactly like a phone call. Instead, a recorded message gets relayed to the receiver in real time. You may collectively scrutinize audio files for months on end.

You may even see when the other person has made the recording he or she sent you. Voice, text, photographs or video serve as conduits of sending valuable information to others. WhatsApp is definitely a success story. Over 31 billion messages get sent via this app everyday. The push-to-talk voice messaging has its advantages. And it will be made available within the span of a single day. You may even delete recordings at will if you want to. The sound of the recording becomes automatically softer the moment you bring it closer to your ear. With so many nifty features this is an app bound to please its user base beyond their wildest dreams.
