I just wanted to thank you for taking my smart phone back in time to the days of Nextel (chirp, chirp!). A simpler time, when with the quick push of a button I could send a walkie-talkie type voice message to my friends to find out what was happening on campus. The push-to-talk phase was great, and oh how it's back with a vengeance!
Now with the Voxer app I can take all the best features of push-to-talk with the added functionality of having a computer in my pocket. You enable me to send quick voice messages that can either be played in real-time when the app is open or the messages will be queued up and ready to play over and over again if needed. The saved message feature is great for multi-tasker like myself. When I am trying to listen to which Chromebooks my colleague took from my office and simultaneously help a teacher set-up their Google Classroom ("Wait, where did those Chromebooks go?"). I love that messages can be between individuals or set up in group conversations to enable your whole team an easy avenue to communicate with each other and refer back to information relevant to the whole group. Working in a tech department that is always on the go and handling multiple issues I need that ability to juggle multiple conversations at once and you do not disappoint. And if doing push to talk wasn't enough, you include all the great features of normal texting apps including pictures, text, and even GIFs!
So in closing, thank you Voxer. I never knew how much I missed the ability to turn my phone into a walkie-talkie until you came along, and the best part is how much more productive you have made me and my team! I think we have a long and prosperous future ahead!
P.S. You are just as useful and even more fun with my friends. What better way to amp up a group text then by creating a group vox to talk trash about fantasy sports or our favorite TV show! What were those directions again, just replay the message. How did I communicate before you were around?!?
