Facebook App Now Has Voice Messenging

The latest Facebook app update comes with voice messaging. Its new Poke app is fresh from development and Twitter gossip but this new voice messenger feature was a more natural progression. After all, its rival Google has voice, video, and group messaging features.

The best part about the new feature is that it works and feels like chatting. Users can see and access voice messages via their chat screen. Unlike real voice mail that you never check, social voice mail has a more prominent place where you actually spend most of your time communicating – in chat windows. Further, chatty users can also opt to continue a conversation while driving, then share these sound files later.

Some users are reporting that the voice recording feature crashes their app, so there might be more work for Facebook. Facebook is not adding voice messaging to its webpage, but perhaps video messaging for mobile is the next logical step?
