The voice note debate

Hello and good evening my Bearded Soldiers, it’s me your Bearded Captain, leader of all Beards and flag-bearer of all beards on digital and digital broadcasting media. I am that Beard who tries to make people laugh and I am that beard who tries to make people smile.

My Beloved’s I hope you’re well, looking after yourselves and your Beards! Brothers, we need to talk about an important issue in the life of Beard, it’s the issue of voice notes. Synonymous with Whattsapp, a voice note is a message you send with your voice.

This can be done over Apple’s Imessage system, but usually it’s people who use the Facebook owned messaging service that use it. Easy, quick and no hassle the voice note is an easy way to express your opinion right?

Well, this is quite the topic that divides opinion. it’s argued ( by weirdos) that VN, is just too much hassle to listen to, write a message and receive one back. Why do you have to change the direction of the conversation for?

If you’re like in the office and you see on your screen that someone has sent a message that you have to listen to, then you have to put the volume down as you listen to it, don’t you? Have you not heard of headphones?

Better still, Apple, Samsung and the other phone companies all have wireless earphones, cool tech right? It’s made for times like this! I argue that those same people who have an issue with VN, are the ones who send five messages to raise a point that could have been written in one!

But yeah, I am the problem because I put my phone down on the side of my computer like now, swipe up to record and speak. There has been a counter argument, that I should download Whattsapp on to my computer, good argument, but my device is old and is in need of deleting apps and not increasing them.

This voice note debate, won’t be solved in this post, (although it should be look at my arguments lol), but a balance is needed, maybe keep the voice notes to a minimum and ask the person if it’s ok to send voice notes and if it’s not tell them they don’t know what they’re talking about and send them a 20 minute one to really ram the message home.

It’s over and out from The Bearded Captain.
