THE Apple Watch it has finally found its vocation in the area of health and well-being and has been advancing (relatively) strides with each new version of watchOS. It is undeniable, however, that the clock is not yet the ideal and definitive communication tool for any user – and that is not even its purpose, some will say.
We already have, in watchOS, a way to redirect calls from the iPhone and an own version of iMessage with text messaging support, but nothing about voice messaging – of course, you can use the walkie-talkie, but it’s definitely not the ideal option for various situations.
Because the designer Patryk Gajdarski imagined just that: a tool for voice messages Apple Watch. Check it out:
In the designer’s idea, the voicemail feature would live within a specific app on watchOS; when opening it, the user would be faced with his list of recent contacts, next to a call button – to start a call with that person immediately, if it is more propitious.
At the top of the screen, it would be possible to search for contacts and start new conversations; within the screen of each conversation, only the history of voice messages from the two contacts – including receipt of receipt and count of unread messages. At the bottom, a microphone button would allow the user to record their messages, just as it does with iMessage (or WhatsApp / Telegram).
Naturally, the idea would need some tweaking before it could be embraced by Apple – it would be much more convenient, for example, to integrate these features into iMessage on Watch than to create a separate voice messaging application. Still, it would be good news, wouldn’t it?
