More new iOS 8 features are rolling out of the WWDC conference today in the Bay Area. Messages, touted by the Apple execs on stage as being THE most used iOS app of all time, is getting some cool new changes.

Users will be able to record voice messages by holding down on the mic icon, swiping up, recording their message, then swiping back down when finished. These audio clips will get dropped right into the ongoing conversation. Video clips can be recorded and shared in similar fashion, turning boring old text messaging into a richer audiovisual experience.

To save on storage space on the device, these messages will typically self-destruct after about 2 minutes, sort of like a supercharged Snapchat. However, this is optional and users can change the timer or turn it off altogether.

Sometimes when you want to send someone a message on your iPhone you want more than just text. You could call, but you really don’t have time for that and a quick video message seems to be the perfect compromise. While there are plenty of options for creating video messages on iOS, none of them are as simple or elegant as Ravid.

Ravid allows users to quickly and easily record a video, then send it with one click. The service integrates seamlessly with your existing contacts list, and requires no additional sign-ins or special accounts necessary. Also, the messages created can be sent to anyone with a smartphone, so you aren’t limited to only sending them to other Ravid users. So what we have here is a simple, free video messaging solution that requires no extra steps and works across all platforms. First off, why didn’t this exist already? And second, why on earth would you not want to have it on your phone right now?
