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.

    I am shocked they don't support voice messages on the one, such a massive step backwards. I only ever used voice messages on the 360, with the lack of them on the one i don't even use messages at all. Luckily my tv is next to my pc where i sit when i game so i can just message them on google hangouts since it is so much easier to type on a keyboard than with a controller. But this is the only feature i am appalled they decided to completely remove, like categories in the store for example.

    I figured I should add my support to this since it hasn't been done yet . Actually thought this would be fairlyeasy to accomplish... Mabe next preview update...

    This is only one of the most popular requests in the feedback repo. It is reprehensible that this was not fully disclosed on the box before purchase. ... even more reprehensible is that this primordially-basic feature was not included in the initial release :/

    This thread has nothing to do with the party system. If you're still having issues with the party system, you may just be technically challenged. I use Skype for video calling and parties work fine for me and my friends. Sounds more like a troll post Jounin, than well constructed feedback and suggestions.

  • Jounin Astray commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I mean when you realize that microsoft 'really' doesn't care as long as they've got your money, and should be taken advantage of at every given loop considering that's all they really do to the consumer. The party system is completely *** over to the point where users are forced to use Skype after looking up fixes for that.

    You can't even get voice messages, because it says to go back to the Xbox 360(obviously the superior console now) to perform simplistic functions. It's sad.. It truly is sad. And they actually expected to compete with Sony..? Really? A joke in its finest.

    Reading the comments people complaining about being anoyed by the messages which is dumb I know you used to be able to shut off notifications not sure if you can now but oh well.

    If they aren't going to add voice messageing then they should at least ad the feature that types what you say instead of typing out everything. Smart Glass is handy but if Im playing games its off and sending a message becomes a hassle then.

    It's never going to be added even though it's been a feature on the Xbox 360 and even the original Xbox. It's probably much easier for MS to scan written messages as opposed to listening to every voice message... and don't think for a minute they aren't snooping on you and reading everything you text on their service!

    Speaking of that Chat Adapter. Who's the wise guy who cooked that kooky revenue generator up? I'd like to exo stomp him/her in-game a few hundred times until I level up. lol

  • Twelvft Monkey commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    It's a move backwards to remove a feature that was well loved, and clearly often utilized on the 360. And on top of that, the hockey puck (unnecessary chat adapter) takes the place of any wouldbe Keypad. It couldn't be an accident, but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and say - you just haven't figured out How to do it. I think Xbox ought to address their customers' concerns in this regard, and make plans immediately to remedy this lack-there-of Now Generation communication requirement.

    No voice messaging? Huh? Pretty lame to remove one of the most basic features of Xbox Live from Xbox One O_o
