Facebook has updated its Messenger application this week to allow people to send voice messages to one another, which could be cute and funny or just really REALLY annoying.
When you visit the Messenger application from an iOS or Android device today you’ll see that when you click “+” next to the message box you now have the option to attach a photo, take a new photo or record your voice. Just hold down the record button, say what you have to say and release it again when you’re done.
Facebook is certainly realising the importance of quick mobile messaging, as it launched its Snapchat-like disposable message application Poke just before Christmas.
Facebook Messenger is available from iTunes and Google Play for free.
