WordPress Introduces Post By Voice

Call Your Blog From Your Phone

WordPress has just introduced a new feature that lets you update your blog by calling a phone number speaking. WordPress users can go to the My Blogs tab, enable "Post by Voice" and get a special phone number to call for their blogs.

Calling the number and recording a message will post an audio file to the blog, which can then be published to Facebook, Twitter, etc. with the Publicize feature.

WordPress launches Post By Voice"It’s happened to all of us," writes WordPress founding developer Matt Mullenweg, introducing the feature. "The night starts off innocently enough with a little gin and tonic, maybe a mojito, then next thing you know you’re doing tequila shots with the bartender and the girl from Brazil and you find yourself thinking it would be a treMENdous idea to call up your ex and see how they’re doing and perhaps impress them with your newfound wit."

"We’ve got the cure," he continues. "Now, instead of drunk dialing random friends, lovers, and acquaintances one at a time, what if you could dial your blog and talk to the whole world at once? It’d be like something out of Star Trek."

All joking aside, the feature has huge potential for quick and lazy blog posting. Got something to say, but don’t feel like writing it? Just make a phone call and broadcast. Then share.

It gives you an hour of talk time for a post (though WordPress says this may decrease after testing). More details here.

  • Post BY Voice Neglected

    You did not specify the fact that this new option is ONLY avaiable to those using wordpress.com and not for self hosted blog sites of wordpress through wordpress.org. SO for the average person using the hosted wordpress, this is cool. But for webmasters who could use this feature, we will just have to wait and see if they roll it out to self hosted wordpress users.

    I am looking forward to using the feature, but how do you add a title to the post? It seems when I do post, it just drops it in as “Audio Post”.

    Thanks for your help!
