Cole Hudson It'd be nice if there was a way to leave a voicemail on another persons phone w/o ringing their phone. There's a level of interaction between sending an email, which is insufficiently personal, and calling someone, which is far too obtrusive, which I think would be great for modes of communication where voice is crucial. The broader category might be email for voice? Or asynchronous voice chat?

Cole Hudson It's certainly close, iMessage executes on this well too, but somehow having to press a button is to much friction. Discord's audio feature is actually fairly close to what I'm thinking of. That with the ability to save context between individual conversations
