Facebook Messenger in 2015

by Ziuby

Leading and the most popular social networking site Facebook has launched a new feature for its messenger app that automatically transcribes any file sent as a voice recording and let the people send voice clips to each other. Facebook’s vice president of messaging products, David Marcus, mentioned that in 2015, the company will be bringing voice-to-text to the app.

With this feature, Facebook will allow people to send written messages without typing.The next big change will be some form of ads or monetization. While Marcus said that these ads wouldn’t be intrusive and that Facebook would make sure to choose a method of monetization that doesn’t get in your face, I know people won’t like it.

For a frequent user of Facebook Messenger it would be something very interesting and time-saving I can say. With the Stickers functionality of Facebook Messenger, Voice-to-text will be a great add-on.
