Washington: Email app WeMail will now allow users to record and send voice messages instead of text emails at up to 20 seconds each, a report said.

Founder Phil Yuen said that the company was toying with the idea of introducing voice transcription initially but gave up because it consumed a lot of time. Users would have to read word by word to make sure the message was transcribed correctly, reported The Verge.

The app also groups conversations by contact and links up with existing accounts from Google, Outlook, Yahoo, and AOL . It has been designed for quick, chat-like responses.
