Smartphones, applications and the possibility of always being connected to the internet no matter where we are have completely changed the way we communicate. From the arrival of WhatsApp, we have gone from text messages to all kinds of variety: emojis, GIFs, stickers, video calls or audio messages that could sometimes go through a podcast episode.
Despite all the evolutions in instant messaging, email is still present as the most formal message option. However, there are people willing to watch the world burn, like the creator of this extension for Gmail. Because Gmail has long since stopped being just an email app.
Sending audio messages in Gmail, was it necessary?
It is enough that it is possible to want to do it. That must have been the Nat.app team in mind when it comes to sending audios through email, and for that reason they have created an extension to bring one of the preferred communication modes within WhatsApp to the internet communication medium more serious.
The extension is not very mysterious. When writing an email, a button will appear to start recording an audio, and at the end of the recording the voice message will be attached as an mp3 file, which the recipient of the email can listen to. As it is an attachment, it can be downloaded or opened both on the PC and on the mobile without the need to download an additional application or extension, regardless of whether the final recipient is a Gmail user.
As you may have suspected, this process of recording and sending audios could have already been done in the past using the recorder of your mobile or PC and attaching the final file. But it is enough that it is an easy process to carry out so that people get excited and start sending audio messages that will arrive in your Gmail inbox.
Do you hate someone and want to give them a hard time? You can download the extension in the Chrome Web Store by clicking here and start sending audios from your email.
