Facebook is planning to launch a new feature called ‘Add Voice Clip’. This new feature will be a part of the status update composer menu. It will allow the users to record a small snippet and present it as an update to your friends.
The organisation is testing the voice clips feature within a small percentage of users in India because of the fact that India has 22 popular languages. Also, they believe typing text in a second tongue can be difficult and India’s population of 1.3 billion is highly appealing.
As told to TechCrunch, a spokesperson from Facebook said, “We are always working helping people share and connect with their friends, and family, on Facebook in ways that are authentic to them. Voice Clips gives people a new medium through which to express themselves.”
Facebook led by Mark Zuckerberg, believes that voice clip will help people to share more intimate experiences than a text or a picture. It is also much easier than a video recording. It will also let people share very personal content, wherever they may be.
It doesn’t need a person to be at any special place, like the ‘check-in’ feature. Also, it doesn’t have to be always appealing as a video or a photo, the tech-giant feels.
