Coco Voice, http://cocovoice.com/, the iOS and Android mobile voice messenger we previously introduced, got a few updates in the past year. Besides “Meet Someone New” for seeing people around you, “Shake Shake” for making friends with people shaking at the same time, “Winks” for sending winks to people you like, Coco Voice make two important updates, “Chat Rooms” and “Question”, in late 2012.

First, Chat Rooms.

Coice chatrooms allow people to chat freely, on given topic of those rooms. Currently, Coco Voice provides the following rooms:

1. Singles – Ready to mingle? :)
2. Sleepless Tonight – What’s on your mind?
3. ...

Currently, the “Single” room is the most popular one, there are always 20~30 people staying there, chatting or arguing about lots of topics, using text or voice.

Coco Voice supports listening to these rooms in background mode. So you can enter your favorite room and them switch to other apps for other fun things. Coco Voice will play messages when they come in. In this way, you are like listening to radio, with lots of people popping up and arguing. It is fun, you should try it out on your iPhone or iPad.

Second, Question.

It is the latest feature of Coco Voice for iOS devices. You ask a question, or express your opinion on others’ question. You are free to ask anything or share anything. Someone asks for whether to buy an iPhone or Samsung Galaxy S3. Someone asks for whether long distance relationship is working or not. Someone just sings and others give their opinions. It has lots of fun to join.

Here is a list of hot topics on Coco Voice, you can listen to these topics on the web.
