Post by voice. If you have got a phone (any phone), you can dial your blog (Yes WordPress Blog) and post your audio message, voice, podcast, concert or whatever from anywhere to your blog. After you’re done, the audio file from your phone call will be posted to your blog for all to listen to and enjoy and added to your RSS feed for podcast support. So now you can post to your WordPress via the web, email, iPhone, Android, Blackberry, desktop clients, and now any telephone in the world. Of course when you post it can be pushed to Facebook, Twitter, and more using the Publicize feature. What more could you want?
Post by Voice is a way to publish audio posts to your blog from your phone. You call a phone number, enter a secret code, record a message, and WordPress handles the rest.
How to do that:
In order to use Post by Voice feature in WordPress you need to enable the feature on your blog and generate a secret code. The secret code is unique to you and your blog so it is important to keep it secret.
- Visit Dashboard -> My Blogs
- Locate the blog that you wish to post to and click on Enable.
- Call the phone number listed on the My Blogs screen, enter your secret code when prompted, and follow the instructions.
If your secret key is compromised, others will be able to publish audio posts to your blog. Go to the My Blogs screen and use the Regenerate link below the secret key to create a different one.
Post by Voice is powered by the Twilio API. The maximum length of a recording is 1 hour for now. If there is 10 seconds of silence, the recording will end. Normal calling rates will apply for the phone call.
The feature is not new becuse Livejournal has supported something like this for years. However, it should make for thousands of interesting, late-night posts in the near future to WordPress.
