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.

Facebook Messenger Review

If there is one thing that has forever been an issue with cell phones, it is messaging.  Let’s face it, the blasted text messages take forever and a day to type a small collection of words, that could be just as quickly and efficiently said in a ten second voice message.  Plus, in order to use either text or voice messages it is required that users actually have a cell plan associated with their iOS device.

Thankfully someone decided to step up to the plate and design an application that can reunite the best parts of voice messages and make them work across the iOS platform, no matter the device.  The app in question is Jumvo, and simply put, it allows users to send voice messages across friends lists on Facebook, which then get propagated out to the end device.

Easily the best part about this interesting new tool is that it is available for absolutely free on the App Store.  People already bug their friends via Facebook Walls, so why not extend the reach a little further?
