If you haven’t noticed by now, Apple is pretty slow when it comes to keeping up with competitor’s mobile software features. Thanks to iOS 8, we now have the ability to quick reply and add system-wide custom keyboards. Sure, that may not seem like a big deal to everyone, but it’s definitely a feature that I’ve been waiting for.
Along with the ability to quick reply, iOS 8 ships with Tap to Talk. This is a new feature that will allow you to reply to a message with an audio snippet or video recording and the other person can play it back inline in the Messages app.
