I have one friend who does this and I do find it a bit weird tbh but I think it's because I would find it pretty hard to do myself, I hate leaving messages on voicemail so actively choosing to do this when you don't have to is pretty unrelatable, although I have got a bit better at it over the years I suppose.

I don't send voice notes, although I do a lot of voice-to-text and then have to clean it up because of transcription errors, so I guess voice notes would be more efficient.

if i am explaining something difficult or complicated, i would rather just explain with voice than write it all out and type it into a tiny box that usually occupies the same space as "be right there" and other utilitarian messages. i am also a person who prefers calls to texts. i just don't feel close to people via tezt bc the communication has limitations i can't get over and i feel it makes me reticent to share in the same way i would verbally.

still i don't send them because i am afraid people are going to be further alienated from me instead of understanding why i am doing it. i wish i had some of my dad bc his messages were absurdly dire-sounding and almost always super banal.

I'd say most times I leave a voice mail is something bad/serious when it would feel like a text is insensitive

This week’s episode of Bad Sisters features Becka sending a voice note in a way that is immediately recognisable to how I would do this, and maybe the first time I’ve seen it done so casually in a tv show?

No. No. Pass.

i don't mind voice notes but I have one friend that will send them 5 in a row, 15-20 minutes of voice notes.
