With continuous evolution in digital marketing, a lot of new trends have been introduced that are being followed well by all the social media marketing platforms to stay in competition. There are different social media marketing applications that are both desktop and mobile-based such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc.
Looking at the current year features, we have seen a lot of new features in these applications such as stories, customization of newsfeed, message unsend feature, video call, group call etc. Till now, we could see the voice message or voice note feature in Facebook messenger and WhatsApp messenger only.
The All-New Voice Note Feature by Instagram
Instagram is a widely used social media marketing platform used by businesses and individuals for creating awareness about business services and sharing pictures and videos with followers regarding your personal life, respectively. With the passage of time, it has become popular to an extent that it is now giving a very serious time to Facebook in terms of popularity. More users are now using Instagram.
Recently, a news rolled out through a tweet by Instagram, regarding the introduction of the voice note feature in Instagram direct. This feature lets you send a voice message right after you release the microphone button. This is almost the same feature as that of Facebook and WhatsApp and works in the same manner like a “Walkie-Talkie.” This feature by Instagram is going to roll out globally, aiming to not only help you share your pictures and videos with your loved ones, but also send and receive voice messages for a better communication.
Unlike the traditional voice-note sending features where you require to first record the voice message and then tap on the “send” button to send it to the other person, the Instagram’s voice note feature acts like a Walkie-Talkie, letting you simply record the voice note by holding on the microphone icon and then releasing it to send the note to the other person. This works in a similar manner like WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger’s voice note feature. This feature is available for both Android and iOS and you can easily download the latest application on your device or update the current one to get started to sending the voice messages.
How to Send the Voice Message?
For successfully sending the voice message, you need to go to Instagram direct section at the top right section of your Instagram and select any of the recipient. You have the choice to select single or multiple users. After deciding the recipient, tap the microphone button next to the camera roll button in the message bar. Tap on the button and record your message, which will be sent right at the moment you release the microphone button. Your message can also be discarded by swiping it to the left most corner. The message recording limit can be up to one minute.
Using this feature, users can thus easily record messages holding the microphone button. If you don’t feel confident about sending it, you can delete it too, sliding your finger over the rash button. Though Instagram is a bit late to introduce the feature, still this update was much needed by Instagram users and is a sign of relief for them, especially in case when they are tired of typing long text messages.
