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.
you should also be able to use kinect to send a message.
I agree, so much easier and quicker to send a small voice message than sending a text message, please bring this to the One.

Please MS make this happen. The ps4 has it why not the Xbox one when the 360 did?!
Yea I like this idea. I like the Motorola connect feature from Google chrome, and a feature like this would be awesome to get notifications of texts on the console because it would really make things a lot easier than pausing the game the check your phone all the time

Or give us voice to text where what we say gets converted to text similar to how it functions on ios/android/wp
That´s a very nice idea

What I would like is a form of 'voice to text' in the messaging options, not just the 15 seconds of voice you had on the 360.
Using the controller is awkward and smart glass take time to activate on a mobile or tablet.
Being able to reply fast by 'voice to text' to a message sent to you is a MUST!
I'd like to see this brought back too plus it could be integrated into the Smartglass app.
When using the PSN app you can record voice messages using your phone to be sent to friends on PSN. Very convenient.
I agree this is some thing that should of been included at launch
How can this be so difficult to play a voice message from the 360 on the One. Microsoft strongest asset in the console war is the community and keeping friends together on both platforms.
This is the one thing I would like to see on the Xbox one. No one has to use it if they don't want to, but having to sign into my 360 just to get a voice mail is just to inconvenient.

While I hate getting "To all recent players I'm hosting a hacked lobby..." it was a convenient feature.

Please bring it back. Can't believe it wasn't available from day one unless they expected everyone to use Skype
I hate this idea

Bring that back! It was something incredible when Halo 2 bring this option for the first time. Still is a most needed return.

for those who don't know usb keyboard can be plug in your xbox one to type messages quickly but XBOX ONE MUST HAVE VOICE MESSAGE I AGREE.
Why didn't this carry over from the 360?
