There are eight different types of volleys that you can send: video, audio, text, image, screen recording, video uploads, GIFS, and files.

Video

Video is the hero of Volley and is the most popular volley type. To send a video volley, simply tap the camera button at the bottom of the timeline, and it will launch the recording view (desktop users can also use the shortcut "V").

Tap the record button to start your recording.

 

When you're done recording, simply hit the stop button.

If you have "Review before sending" turned on, you will be able to watch, cancel, re-record, schedule (pro), or send your volley.

If you have "Review before sending" turned off, the volley will be automatically added to the timeline once you stop your recording.

If you want to start your volley over, simply hit the cancel button and re-record what you want to say.

On your mobile device, there is also the ability to switch the camera around back and forth between the front and rear cameras while recording.

Note: There is no countdown timer before you record so you can keep the conversation moving, just like you would in a real-life conversation.

 

Audio

To send an audio volley, tap the microphone icon at the bottom of the timeline, and it will launch the recording view (desktop users can also use the shortcut "A").

When you're done recording, simply hit the stop button.

If you have "Review before sending" turned on, you will be able to preview, cancel, re-record, schedule (pro), or send your volley.

If you want to start your volley over, simply hit the cancel button and re-record what you want to say.

 

Text

Images, Video Uploads, and GIFS

On your mobile device, there are multiple ways upload an image or video that you have on your camera roll.

Click the gallery button in the lower right-hand corner, and then chose whether you want to take a photo, choose a photo (from your camera roll), choose a video (from your camera roll), or share a GIF (from the GIPHY library).

To upload a picture or video from your desktop, select the paperclip icon to launch a file browser.

Select the image or video file you would like to send. Or, just drag and drop into the Volley window and it will automatically send! This also works for other file types.

Note: There is a 50MB file size upload limit (Basic plan) or 250MB (Volley Pro plan) for any file sent as a volley.

 

To send a gif on your desktop, simply select the "GIF" icon at the bottom of the timeline (Shortcut: "G") to browse the GIPHY library.
