Recording Voice Messages has made texting nearly defunct as people have begun to lose their thumb strengths required for typing long messages. Given the smaller keyboard on the smaller screens on smartphones, spelling mistakes are most likely. Hence, people like me love to send voice message on Facebook Messenger from iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows PC or Laptop or Mac.
Sending voice clips on Facebook Messenger is really fun. Even WhatsApp has also integrated this feature and users enjoy sending long voice messages. As a matter of fact, WhatsApp, Viber, and Skype users likely to make landline calls using the apps (if India’s government clears the legal aspects). This will be a great achievement for these apps and Facebook might follow suit.
But currently, let’s check how you can use Facebook messenger to record voice messages.
