Messaging app standoff! Voxer versus Facebook Messenger

An article came out recently on Mashable: 10 hidden tricks to get the most out of Facebook Messenger. While Voxer is a different messaging app from Facebook Messenger altogether, with features that Facebook Messenger doesn’t provide (live voice, for one), we couldn’t help but realize Voxer has some similar hidden tricks that most people don’t even know about.

1. Listen to messages live, or later

You may be on Voxer and use this one all the time, without even realizing it! Most messaging apps allow you to record audio, then send it as a message. But Voxer allows you to listen live, as someone is sending you audio. That way you can listen live now, or listen to the recorded message later. So convenient, right?

2. There’s a standalone website for Voxer

Seriously, did you know that? You can keep conversations going at work right from your desk. Just log in to your Voxer account at web.voxer.com. It’s also helpful if you’re managing a team that’s out in the field. You can stay in touch live. And your drivers, film crew, or consultants can listen live or later, and reply when the time is appropriate for them. It’s great for talking to an entire team at once (large group chats), or one-on-one, and when time is of the essence.
