In this article, we’re going to show you how to use voice messaging on any device with the best team communication app in the market.
Trending Voice Messaging Apps
Many popular social media platforms, such as Whatsapp and Messenger, provide built-in voice messaging features (also known as push-to-talk) that allow you to record and send a voice message within seconds.
This is a great way to communicate with colleagues, friends and family as push-to-talk messages are more intimate and sophisticated than the typical poorly spelt text. You also feel much closer after hearing someone’s voice than you would after reading an SMS.
Rise of Voice Assistants
According to a report from Juniper Research, smart speakers such as Amazon Echo, Google Home, and the Sonos One will be installed in over 70 million US households by 2022, reaching 55% of all homes. This means that a voice revolution is coming and people will start using speech to communicate more than text.
Finding an app that uses voice messaging on any device can be a challenge. Whatsapp, for example, is a great communication app but you can only use it on your smartphone. You can’t access your messages online and this, sometimes, is frustrating when your phone is out of battery, for instance.
Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could just login to an online account to listen and reply to your messages when you are at work? Logistics businesses that need to keep the communication going between drivers and teams in the office would really benefit from this.
How to Use Voice Notes
Sound Branch is a unique voice notes app, available on Google Play and Apple App Store, that uses a standalone website for users. This way, you can access all your messages on the web but most importantly you can send voice messages and create communication groups. It looks like Gmail for voice.
- Download the app
- Create a personal or business account
- Invite friends / colleagues to join
Once you have created your account, you can access it on the web on soundbranch.com.
Sending a voice message is effortless, just follow these steps:
- Tap and hold the microphone and start speaking.
- Name your audio clip.
- If you wish you can add an image and/or a link by tapping the relevant icon.
- Tap ‘Post’ and you’re done.
Voice communication is not only great for individuals but for businesses too as it requires the receiving party to respond or engage with the message. It helps you to make a good impression and find commonalities with current or prospective clients too.
