Google has launched its first Android App based on voice input messaging and will not involve the keyboard to type a message. The employees of the company were working on a project through its start-up incubator Area 120 which went life at SXSW this week. Android users were disappointed since the app was first launched for iOS devices, but the tech giant did not take a long time to put the app Google Play Store.
The app is called Supersonic Fun Voice Messenger and relies on voice input rather than conventional typing. As users speak, their words are automatically converted into text and any relevant emoji and the message delivered is so fast that users can’t change or edit it.
At the other end, the receiver can read the message or listen to what the sender has said. The interesting part of the app, once the message is read by the receivers it automatically disappears from the chat history.
Google has now a couple of messaging apps already available on Google Play and App Store and the search giant is taking another approach to capture the market since most of the market share is already captured by Facebook. Users can engage in conversation with individuals as well as with a group of users. Additionally, users can choose to have new messages auto-play as they are received and can select whether messages are played through the main speaker or the phone receiver.
The Supersonic Fun Voice Messenger is available free for iOS or Android right now at the Play Store. It isn’t available in all regions yet, and the app hasn’t yet found its way to India.
