Was there any need for voice messaging service on every platform? LinkedIn thinks so. In one of the new update, the business and employment-oriented service has rolled a voice service feature that can now record and send voice messages up to one minute long.
The company announced the feature on their blog post and intended to make it easier to send the message on the go. The recipient can “listen and respond when they have a free moment.”
The LinkedIn stated,
“Easily message on-the-go: People speak about four times faster than they type, making voice messaging great for explaining more extended or more complex ideas without the time and involvement of typing and editing a message. It’s also helpful for when you’re on the move and don’t have time to stop and type.
Get to it when you can: Leaving a voice message can often better for a recipient than calling them since they can listen and respond when they have a free moment.
Better express yourself: Speaking in your own voice allows you to build a more personal connection and effectively communicate. It’s easier for your tone and personality to come through, which can sometimes get lost in translation in written communications.”
The feature works exactly like that on WhatsApp. The user has to tap and hold the microphone icon to send the audio message. If you want to cancel before sending, slide your finger away from the microphone icon while holding it down.
Irrespective of being a professional platform, LinkedIn looks to bridge the gap between social messaging services and the business services. It will further help the users’ to stay in touch with their connection through voice messaging, even on the move.
Currently, the feature is rolled out for the Android and iOS platform. This feature will be available globally to all members in the next few weeks.
