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!]

    We need audio message and also the ability to use Kinect to send photos in messages.

    The fact that you can't send voice messages is incredibly stupid and short sighted. The console should have shipped with that feature built in, just like it was on 360 at launch. Quite frankly this is far more than an annoyance at this point, and I've had my Xbox One since launch day. Inexcusable that you can launch a new console and it NOT include everything the previous console had.

    I still can not believe Voice Messages has not been integrated. This is becoming an annoyance.

    I find it very disappointing that I paid 400 dollars for a console that does not have a feature that the last one did. If anything, I really hope this gets added as do others of the Xbox community.

    This isnt a feature?
    How is this better than the 360?
    Next gen my butt
    I paid 400 bucks for a system that cant do ANYTHING the 360 does?

    Another example of progress going backward...ya know the new vcr's dont even let you change gotta use last gen products to do things that should be no brainers for next gen
    Yes i still use a vcr LOL

    voice mail is a must, sometimes a text isn't enough to convey what you what you have to say. if it is brought back make sure it works with smartglass as well. its nothing like a good voice message for your friend or clan on the go.

    We need this feature. Its been over a year and still no voice messaging! Would also love the ability to send voice messages via SmartGlass app

    I like this idea also have the amount of time to record a message longer then 1 min
