– SMS Using Your Voice

Pana.maThe role played by text communications is becoming larger day by day. Some are concerned about the value that oral communication has in our time, and how the original form of human interaction is being slightly relegated.

“Slightly” is the key word here. There will never be an absolute displacement, and that is undeniable. However, there are many who claim that text messages and IM can lead people (specially younger individuals) towards losing the sensibility and the etiquette that a face-to-face always has.

These considerations seem to lie at the heart of this new communication service, a kind of hybrid that takes text and voice and blends it together. The result is what the team behind it terms “Voice Messaging”. You use your voice to message a friend privately, or a group of friends. Likewise, you can create public discussions and take part of existing ones.

This is all accomplished by downloading an app that will enable your iPhone to record voice messages and send them at no cost (the one difference this has with leaving a message in an answering machine).

Will this catch on? Isn’t just easier and equally effective to send out a SMS? You decide… In Their Own Words

“Use your voice to message privately with one friend or a group of friends. You can also create and interact with public discussions.”
