How to Send Video VoiceMail Messages from the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch? Can one actually send video voicemail messages from the iPhone? Oh yes, it certainly is possible, but the message gets delivered as an MMS (if sent via iMessage / normal messaging) or as an email if you choose to send it that way.
The whole idea is simple. You record a video (a very short one) and then choose from a set of options. Here’s how to send video voicemail messages from the iPhone / iPad:
Step 1: Launch the camera app. Tap the camera button to toggle to get to the video recording mode.
Step 2: Optionally if you want, you can toggle the camera to the front-facing feature.
Step 3: Tap the red record button and record a short clip. Keep the time limit to under 30 seconds. This makes it easy and fast to send the video as a message.
Step 4: Once you’ve recorded the video, it gets saved in the camera roll. Now, tap the thumbnail at the lower-left to show the camera roll.
Step 5: With the recent video selected, tap the square arrow. On the options that show up, you can either send the video as a message or an email.In the same way as you send a normal email or message, type out the email/message to be sent along with the video, enter the recipients and hit ‘send.’
It is usually better to have iMessage configured because it’s the faster and easier way of sending video messages. On the regular message, however, the video clip that you just sent gets delivered as an MMS. On the email, it gets delivered just like any other regular email.
Note: This is not video voicemail though but it’s close enough to be one.
