The key difference in messaging with Voxer lies in voice. It’s like a walkie-talkie, but more. Voice messages are sent, so everyone can listen as you speak. At the same time, the app is automatically recording your voice, so it can be listened to. Live AND recorded, get it?! Wow, that is awesome.
This makes Voxer a great tool when your work is time-dependent, but also allows you to communicate when convenient to you.
First download Voxer here:
Voxer for iOS
Make sure to allow Voxer access your phone address book. That way, you’ll be able to find team contacts more easily.
Send invitations to Voxer via the app.
Once logged in, you can send Voxer invites to others – it’s the easiest way to get your team on board. In Voxer, go to the menu and Invite Friends. Everyone who is listed in your phone contact list will appear here. (*But only if you allowed Voxer to access your phone when you signed up!)
How do I find people on Voxer?
There are two ways to do this:
1. Search for other users in your Voxer Contacts List. Search full names, usernames or email addresses.
2. Or, Share your profile with others. Go to your Voxer profile page and share via text message, email, or social media.
Starting a group chat:
Now you’re ready to get this chat rolling. If you are the administrator, use the New Chat button in your Chats List to get a group chat set up. Select “Group Chat” and scroll through your Contacts List to add members. (Remember: If you didn’t add everyone to your Contacts List, they won’t show up here. Add them by tapping on their profile pic and selecting “Add”.)
Finding a group chat
If you are looking for your team's group chat, you can do one of two things (or both!):
1. Ask the group chat admin to send you a link to the group chat.
2. Provide the group chat admin with your Voxer username, and ask to be added.
