Add Audio / Voice Message and Not Only Text Message
On Xbox 360, we can send an audio message to friends .. it would be great to have it and to be able to read it on Smartglass and not only on Xbox 360/Xbox One.
[Mod Edit: This idea was merged with similar ideas posted by darthshadow25, BBx RETALIATE, Post Up, FUN JOE, Girth Brooks1, and PrestoFriend531. Thanks everyone!]
Voices messages are now available with the release of the May system update.
Please for the love of Xbox give us our voice! Maybe a sprinkle of video messages wouldn't hurt either.
MS hoped we'd all use Skype for this but it's just a mess. Simple give us voice msg. Its my number 1
This is my number one suggestion

This is pretty much a must have. great idea, i miss it. thanks for sharing. vote from me.
how could they move so far backwards to not give us voice messaging
We already have video chat that's with skype an we already have private chat and we don't need voice message
Why was this removed? I thought this was next gen.

Add video message for that matter
Just to confirm also, you CANNOT open voice messages on your Xbox 1 consoles Skype app.

This is one feature that just makes me think like why is this on the 360 and not on the One.. I loved this feature please bring it back in the next update sooner rather then later.

I'm just still puzzled as to why they would remove such a popular and useful feature. This feature should have been evolved and upgraded from the 360… come on Xbox Team, get it together please.

Def a great idea. We had it on 360 & made online so much better then PSN
Yes please? Would be a lot easier sending messages with voice. ^_^
Bring back voice messages ala xbox 360, then I won't have to do this....texting.
Its been about 7 months since the xbox one has been out and we still don't have voice messaging.

I am agreeable to this idea, and also if voice messages sent from an Xbox 360 can be listened to on an Xbox One, and vice versa. As others have already commented, I am exceedingly surprised that the voice messaging feature which was available on the Xbox 360 is not available on the would-be "next-generation" console.
I would really like to see voice and picture messaging... if smartphones can do it why not my console too.
No idea what they were smoking when they left this out!!
To me, the fact that a feature that was on a 7th Generation Console is not on it's successor is really mind boggling. It was a feature that the competition did not have, yet has it now, and we do not? And for the people that say Voice Messaging was a hassle... I say to you... this is next gen, and the new voice messaging system would be different, more fluid, especially with Kinect. And the new reputation system, would stop the trolls from messaging you, when you beat them down in whatever game. VOICE MESSAGING IS A MUST!
