Tumblr Lets Bloggers Dial-In To Add New Content [Video]

Tumblr Lets Bloggers Dial-In To Add New Content [Video]

Use a retro phone service to post audio on your blog.

Ross Brooks

Tumblr’s latest feature allows you to call a toll-free number and record a short audio message that becomes your latest blog post. It was announced in a single post that reads Operators are standing by. Call now!” There’s also a spoofy video that is more pure humor than actual company announcement.

The feature is easy to use, just add a telephone number to your Tumblr settings that you want to be able to to record a message, and then dial 1-866-584-6757. As soon as you hang up, the message will get posted to your Tumblr account.


Adding a phone number doesn’t require any verification, so you could potentially add friends and other contributors to your account as well.

Watch the video to get a sense of just how retro Tumblr’s new feature is.
