The voice notes in WhatsApp they have been a lifesaver for those who talk a lot and of course, for those who do not like to write. But there are things that can annoy recipients. And it is known by all that WhatsApp audios are normally used to avoid writing so much.
But many people don’t like it. In this note you will be able to know five mistakes that are committed when sending voice notes in the messaging app of Goal. And is that, is any reader one of those people who sends voice messages to everyone in WhatsApp, Instagram either Telegram big part of the day? Or vice versa, because there are also those people who receive a lot of audio and can’t stand it.
Voice messages are a good solution if you are in a hurry, you don’t want to write or if you need to say something where the tone of voice is important. The problem is that most people find them boring because one can spend more time listening than reading.
And maybe some reader has spent 2 minutes with their ears glued to the cell phone or in hands-free mode, and when the audio ends, he finally doesn’t say anything important.
These are the typical errors when sending voice notes on WhatsApp
A renowned journalist from Business Insider, Victoria Bustamante, compiled the most common mistakes users make when sending WhatsApp voice messages. These are rules to use the application well, so it never hurts to know them.
1. The extension of the audio
The first is the length. WhatsApp recommends a maximum duration of 2 minutes, but this is literally an eternity. Many receivers don’t even hear them or hear them at high speeds. The ideal duration is about 30 seconds.
This is enough time so that the receiver does not get tired and, at the same time, the necessary length to justify why what was said in a text has not been sent.
2. It is best to answer audio with another audio
Another common mistake made with WhatsApp audios is respond with text messages. If someone sends you an audio, the best thing to do (and even out of courtesy) is to reply with another audio. This is what the other person usually expects. In addition, the conversation will be more fluid.
3. It is better to send short audios, to one of 2-3 minutes
If you still have a lot to say and calling is not an option for the user, the best solution is send several short audios. They can be answered separately and listened to in parts.
But don’t let it be more than 2 or 3, or it will scare the recipient. Nobody wants to listen to 20 messages of 30 seconds by audio.
4. Listen to audio with maximum volume
A fairly common mistake with WhatsApp audios is listening to a high volume or in a public place. Walls can hear, and unlike text, audio can be heard by others.
Private information could be revealed, which is not in anyone’s interest. The audio can suddenly change and what seemed like a casual conversation turns into a private or even compromising voice note. Therefore, Bustamante recommends always listening to the WhatsApp audio at low volume, or better yet, with earphones.
5. Not always using voice messages
And finally, a good tip is not to abuse voice messages. Sometimes yes, obviously, it’s good. But if a person sends several to the same WhatsApp user every day, he will get tired. When you have so much to say, the speech is quicker and less tiring.
WhatsApp or Telegram voice bugs can drive the recipient crazy and ignore you. So you have to be careful.
