Facebook Messenger Adds Voice Transcription: An Useful Feature?

In one particular point of time, voicemail can be more useful when it needs to be accurately convey direct lengthy message/monologues to the other recipient. Yes. Indeed! It's faster, quicker, more efficient, and more convenient way to send message.

With that, Facebook added a Voice Transcription feature which enables people to send and convey voice message clips directly to their friends without having to type out the text.

A post with David Marcus, Vice President of Messaging Products at Facebook, announcing its feature to roll out in a small test that helps people read the voice clips without playing it loud.
We’re always working on ways to make Messenger more useful. As many of you know, we already offer a feature that enables people to send voice clips to their friends without having to type out the text. Today we are starting to roll out a small test that helps people read the voice clips they receive instead of having to play them out loud. So, for example, if you’re at a concert or in a meeting, and would prefer to read a voice clip from a friend, you now can if you're part of the small test we're rolling out. Our plan is to test this feature at a tiny scale for now and we’re looking forward to seeing what you think of it before making the experience more widely available. ~ David Marcus
