Since the launch of WeChat
intercom function (the earliest should be Hongkong team developed TalkBox, but in the end off the market or Tencent, WeChat voice) as one of the most ancient social media value finally revealed recently, is also very popular KTV application — sing, is actually based on the sound value then, as the age of the Internet under the same old way of communication – mail, whether it can be changed by the sound of it? The answer is of course.
VoiceGem is such an asynchronous voice mail service. VoiceGem’s two founders Arda Kara and Alexander Blessing all is to pursue a master’s degree in Stanford University, Stanford University, but their two hometown are from the United States not in Turkey and Germany, the middle can not only separated by a the Atlantic. The two of them face the same problem: they are very difficult to communicate with their families and local friends because of the time difference and geographical differences. Skype is almost not available (do not say first cost is our domestic different area audio card assembly is not), send a simple text message is very cold. Although there are SocialCam, Viddy and the like to share video applications, but just a few words to shoot a video is a bit too wasteful, and only the mobile terminal, the family may not be able to adapt to the elderly. So two people on the initiation of the sound can be combined with traditional ideas. This is the prototype of VoiceGem.
The principle of
VoiceGem is actually very simple, go to the VoiceGem website, you want to contact type contact mail, then say what you want to be good, after the completion of the recording will generate a link, just fill out the automatically saved to the e-mail address to send in the mail text. The other side as long as the point to open the link, you can automatically jump to the VoiceGem to hear your voice, but the human nature is that the voice of the party does not need to log on to VoiceGem, click on the link can listen to the.
Arda Kara and Alexander Blessing said in an interview that VoiceGem does not require users to pay more than that: it does not spend money, do not need special software, not to send any attachments and spam, like Skype don’t need to buy international voice package, because it does not need a phone number. It doesn’t even require a high quality microphone. VoiceGem just wants to make communication easier with family".
