On numerous occasions to send a short audio message can be more convenient and faster to write the same message with the keyboard, especially in certain situations. Also, for everyone knows that the phones today are used less each day to that for which they were created, talk, and sometimes we can also avoid a long phone conversation with a simple audio message.

Apple  has added to  iOS 8 extremely simple way to send audio messages through the native Messages app.

But the best part comes now. When you do the above a radial menu appears with three options: "play" (replacing the microphone icon under your finger), post, at the top, and an "X" on the left side to clear. You can  send or delete the audio message without lifting a finger ; when you finish talking slides up and release to send, or slide to the left and release to delete.

If you prefer before hearing the message, when done talking lift your finger and see the "play" button. Click and listen and then slides up or left to send or delete respectively.
