– Animation message is a built-in smart editor to create animated messages (Scribble) with handwritten messages, texts, photos, background and music. What’s cool about it that the animations are presented to the recipient in the same way as drawn by you. Animations created can also be saved for later use. (Deserves a try!)
– Push-to-Talk is another great feature that virtually turns your phone into a Walkie-Talkie. While having a normal chat, just tap the phone button to turn on recording. Then speak your message and as you leave the button, the recording gets instantly pushed to the recipient’s device, that he/she can listen right away.
