We Need To Talk About How The Voice Message Feature On iMessage Is Evil And Must Be Stopped

A true technological life-ruiner.

Posted on

Hello. It's me, Lauren. On behalf of millions who suffer like myself, I'm writing this open letter to the world (but really to Apple) to say one thing: PLEASE LET US HAVE THE ABILITY TO DISABLE THE VOICE MESSAGE FEATURE ON IMESSAGE.

Yes, I'm talking about that little old-timey microphone button that you literally cannot get rid of, even though it causes pain and suffering to humans across the world.

Sure, *some* people might find it useful, and I'm happy for them. Really, I am! But other people don't find it useful. It's more like a button that is potentially life-ruining.

Almost just sent a voicenote to the person who the voicenote is about!.. I literally nearly just ruined my life! πŸ˜­πŸ˜‚

KINDA LIKE HELL ON EARTH.

Oh god..😬 This fucking voice note feature on imessage is hellπŸ˜ͺ

Because some of us keep sending voice notes by accident, and it is NOT GOOD.

That little button can cause social trauma, because you never know what a recipient might hear on the other side.

And with one little slip of the finger, you could accidentally send what only your therapist is supposed to hear. And all you can do is watch it fly through cyberspace while experiencing heart palpitations.

And then coming to terms with another person actually hearing your personal conversations or, tbh, shit-talking, is panic-inducing.

No matter what you might send, even if it's kinda innocent, it's embarrassing AF.

Damn these phones! I just sent my Mother a voice note by accident. A conversation I was having with someone... In the bathroom. Eish

Accidental voice notes are NO JOKE, PEOPLE!!! And sure, you can blame us for our carelessness, but also you can't, because careless people are human too and we deserve to be able to prevent these things from happening.

Think accidentally sending a message to someone is bad? Try accidentally sending a voice note! Kill. Me. Now.

Maybe we just want to keep our angelic voices private??

Yoooo is there a way to turn that voice note shit off cus I keep sending people voice notes of me singing by accident

MAYBE WE DON'T WANNA GET FIRED?

When you send a voice note to your boss by accident on some drunk shit πŸ€”πŸ˜© #FML lmao

AND THINK ABOUT THE OTHER PEOPLE!!! THIS COULD BE ANY ONE OF US!!

When someone sends u a voice note on accident and you weren't supposed to hear them talking about u 😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊

In conclusion: LET US JUST DISABLE THIS DAMN THING.

legit texted someone a voice note of me sneezing yesterday by accident

END IT NOW.
