Facebook Testing “Add Voice Clip” Feature For Status Updates

More intimate than text but easier to record than video, Facebook hopes voice could get people sharing more on its aging social network. And internationally, where users may have to deal with non-native language keyboards, voice lets them speak their mind without a typing barrier.

Facebook is now testing Voice Clips as a status update option with a small percentage of users in India. First spotted by Abhishek Saxena, Facebook confirms to TechCrunch the presence of the new feature. As a spokesperson tells us, “We are always working to help people share and connect with their friends and family on Facebook in ways that are authentic to them. Voice Clips gives people a new medium through which to express themselves.”
