Add your voice to your selfie
Bangalore, February 21 2017: When Priyanka Chopra used a speaking photo to thank her fans after winning the People’s Choice Awards and Amitabh Bachchan pasted a ‘speaking poster’ of the new film, Wazir, they were riding a new trend sweeping the social media: adding voice to selfies to create Voxies.
In fact they are using a tool created by IIT Kanpur alumnus Yash Mishra that went live worldwide at the of IIT Bombay fest, Mood Indigo, in December.
With the Voxie app available for Android and iOS, you can take a picture, add add up to 11 seconds of voice note – in lieu of text caption -- and share the speaking picture with anyone.
The resultant ‘speaking pic’ is displayed as an image underline by an orange line. This orange line helps the recipient identify speaking pictures which can be heard upon tapping the pic. The app also has a 4 second selfie timer which can help you capture the context of the selfie – like a live music concert.
