Written By Axel Nash |

Since the inception of online messaging, we have been used to just being able to type the message we want to send. This way of messaging has been very effective and offers so much convenience to us users.

However, as the years pass by, messaging applications have been thinking of ways how they can elevate their platforms. They then came up with the idea of being able to send media files within their platform and this has changed the online messaging industry. People did not need to send a separate email anymore when they all can do it on just 1 platform.

Sending voice messages has continued to be used by a lot of people now as it is time-saving and they can get their message across by just tapping on one button and it can be sent after. However, we still want to be able to review the voice message we just recorded before sending it to our friends. So, we will talk about how you can preview the voice message before you can send it to your contacts.
