Even the shortest email can take a long time – worrying about everything from greeting to sign off and all that’s in between! AND, even when you think you’ve got it right… you still have concerns over the tone. Simply put – written copy, however good, just cannot convey the same sense of person as voice!
Wouldn’t it be great if there were a tool out there allowing users to add audio to their Gmail messages?! Good news for you: there is and it’s called Mote!!
Install the Mote Chrome extension by visiting this link on the Chrome Web Store.
Open up Gmail and start to compose a new message; you will see the Mote icon next to the send button. Once recorded, all that you need to do is send! Take look at this video below for a quick run through:
Anyone that receives an email message containing a mote, will see the clickable card.
- Those that have Mote installed will be able to listen to the voice note, without leaving the message.
- Anyone accessing without Mote, will be taken to the landing page for the voice note where they can hear and read any voice to text transcription.
