Voice messages are part of the features of WhatsApp used, and the function is so popular that it has been possible to identify that daily a total of 7 billion messages on the platform.
However, while it may seem convenient to press a button so you can start talking and then send the recordingthe use of this tool also requires consideration by the person who is going to receive it, since they will have to spend time listening to the message and then to answer it with another recording or writing.
That is why to avoid inconvenience among users who receive this type of message, TechMarkup brings these tips to send appropriate voice notes.
Jo Bryant, an expert in professional etiquette, states that “sometimes we can forget the importance of etiquette in situations digitaland there are no official rules to guide us.”
– The very long audios are not a good idea to communicate by WhatsApp. Although each person is free to choose the duration of the voice messages, the ideal is that they last between 1 and 2 minutes. It is convenient to use them when what is going to be said is too long to write and too short to make a call.
In cases where the audio is too long, WhatsApp enabled the option to be able to play a recording at higher speed (1.5 and 2 times).
– Before sending a very long recording, users can choose to send several short-lived separately when you have the weather enough for it and to respond to each one.
– The respect is key when sending a recording. While it is true that people often have hearing aids available, the possibility that a third person can hear what is being said, which can be uncomfortable for the user. Do not raise your voice excessively when recording the Audio helps maintain the privacy of the conversation.
– Part of the reason why take into account the duration of the message of voice is because a very extensive recording prevents the audio receivers from being able to respond appropriately without forgetting the contents of each one and have to listen to it again to be able to answer.
– If one person sends a voice message, the other could answer in the same way through a recording. For this, short answers should be prioritized, but not so much that it is easily replaceable for a message or so long that a call be the best option.
– The respect to time of the other people is important because the user does not know if he will be available to be able to listen to an audio. In case they are needed, this could be resolved by coordinating a call or, in any case, waiting for a response as long as it takes.
You can also send voice messages hands-free in case other activities are going on while you multitask. To do this, hold down the microphone icon and slide your finger up to lock the recording. When you’re done, tap to send.
