BBOS Asks: Do You Use Voice Notes?
We all love BBM for different reasons. From the messaging capabilities with groups, to the individual chats and the check mark, the D and R, we are fascinated by it and for many, it's their device's most used app.
I do feel that there is a little feature that doesn't get all the attention it deserves, voice note recording.
I can't tell you how useful it has been for me to send a voice note instead of a BBM at times. We've all been in situations where it's easier to just explain something verbally then it is to write out a whole message.
Voice note recording is already integrated into BBM and there's two easy ways to record one.
Through the menu on BBM.
The most common way to send a voice note is to access the option on the menu in a BBM chat. Simply open the menu and scroll to Send and select the Voice Note option. Note: This option will limit the length of the voice note you're sending to one minute.
Through the Voice Note Recorder app.
I can't tell you how many times I've heard of someone not knowing this app existed. For most of us the Voice Note Recorder and the Voice Notes apps will be in the Media folder, but if it's not, check the Applications folder too.
This option enables you to record a voice note for a lot longer time and then send/share it as you please. I tested it out today to see how long of a voice note I could record and still BBM it to someone. I managed to get all the way up to 5 minutes and then figured that'd be more than enough for most people. So if you do hit a limit to the length of time a voice note can be to be sent over BBM, please share it with us.
