How to set up and use Voicemail on iPhone

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

How do I check my voice messages on iPhone? It’s in the Phone app!

We’re so used to hearing about all the amazing things that our smartphones can do that we sometimes forget that it is also a phone. Though it’s not as common as messaging, people do still call each other, and even leave voice messages sometimes. Here’s how to set up and use the voicemail service on your iPhone.

Note: Not all iPhone users have the same voicemail features. Some carriers will still have you simply call a number to listen, delete, skip ahead, archive, etc. This how-to guide is for those with the on-screen features enabled.

How to set up voicemail on iPhone

Before you can use your voicemail messaging service, you’ll have to create a passcode. The voicemail service provided by your carrier will already be stored in your iPhone.

  1. Open the Phone app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap Voicemail in the bottom right corner of the screen.
  3. Tap Set Up Now.
  4. Enter a passcode (the passcode must be four to six digits).
  5. Tap Done.
  6. Re-enter the passcode.
  7. Tap Done.

Your voicemail messaging service is now set up and you will not need to use the passcode again unless there is an issue.

How to change your voicemail passcode

You can change your voicemail passcode at any time.

  1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
  2. Scroll down and tap Phone.
  3. Tap Change Voicemail Password.

  4. Enter the new four or six-digit passcode.
  5. Re-enter the passcode
  6. Tap Done.

How to record a custom greeting on iPhone

You can leave the default greeting that is provided by your network carrier, but that might make callers worry that they’ve reached the wrong number. Instead, you can create a custom greeting with all of the flair that you bring to life.

  1. Open the Phone app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap Voicemail in the bottom right corner of the screen.
  3. Tap Greeting in the upper left corner of the screen.

  4. Tap Custom.
  5. When you are ready, tap Record and record your custom greeting.
  6. Tap Play to play back your greeting to make sure you like it.
  7. Tap Save when you are happy with your greeting.

How to listen to voicemail on iPhone

When someone leaves a voice message, you will see a badge with a number next to the Voicemail tab in the Phone app. The number represents all unheard voicemail messages.

  1. Open the Phone app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap Voicemail in the bottom right corner of the screen.
  3. Tap a voicemail to open the playback options.

  4. Choose Speaker if you want to play the message from the iPhone speaker.

    When you have Bluetooth speakers connected to your iPhone, tap Audio, and then choose either listening directly from the iPhone, listening with the iPhone speakers, or listening with the connected Bluetooth speaker.

  5. Press Play to listen to the message.
  6. Press Pause to pause the message.
  7. Drag the slider bar to the left or right to rewind or fast forward the message.

How to mark a voicemail as heard on iPhone

You don’t have to actually listen to a voicemail in order to mark it as already heard. Sometimes, you already know what a message says and you don’t need to hear it.

  1. Open the Phone app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap Voicemail in the bottom right corner of the screen.
  3. Tap Edit in the upper right corner of the screen.

  4. Select the unheard message or messages.
  5. Tap Mark As Read in the bottom left corner of the screen.

How to view the transcript of a voicemail on iPhone

You can view transcripts of voicemail messages so you never have to actually listen to them again.

  1. Open the Phone app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap Voicemail in the bottom right corner of the screen.
  3. Tap a voicemail.
  4. The transcript of the voicemail message will already be there.

There are a few more cool features with voicemail transcripts that you should check out.

How to share or save voicemail on iPhone

If you do nothing, voicemail messages will stay on your iPhone, but that doesn’t guarantee they are saved forever. If something happens to your iPhone, you might lose them. You can be extra sure your voicemail messages are safely stored by saving them in a cloud-based service like Dropbox or iCloud. You can also share the audio recording with others through built-in and third-party apps.

  1. Open the Phone app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap Voicemail in the bottom right corner of the screen.
  3. Tap a voicemail.

  4. Tap the Share button at the top of the message. It looks like a square with an arrow pointing upward sticking out of it.
  5. Tap the service you want to share through or save the audio to.

    The voicemail will be saved or shared as a m4a file.

How to call back someone that left a voicemail message on iPhone

  1. Open the Phone app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap Voicemail in the bottom right corner of the screen.

  3. Tap a voicemail.
  4. Tap Call Back in the bottom middle of the message.

You can also view someone’s contact card and respond via other ways of communication.

  1. Open the Phone app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap Voicemail in the bottom right corner of the screen.
  3. Tap a voicemail.

  4. Tap the information button in the upper right corner of the message. It looks like a circle with an “i” inside.
  5. Select the communication service you want to respond with from message, call, video, or mail.

How to delete a voicemail

If you don’t want to save a voicemail for posterity, you can move it into the Deleted Messages folder where you later have the option to “Undelete” it.

  1. Open the Phone app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap Voicemail in the bottom right corner of the screen.

  3. Tap a voicemail.
  4. Tap Delete.

To remove a voicemail from your device, you’ll need to perform one more set of steps.

  1. Open the Phone app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap Voicemail in the bottom right corner of the screen.

  3. Tap Deleted Messages.
  4. Tap Clear all. You can’t remove messages individually.

Google Duo gains support for video voicemail messages

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

When someone calls you and you can’t pick up, they have the option of leaving you a voicemail so that you can get their message when you become available again. There hasn’t really been an equivalent for video calls, but Google is aiming to change that.

Google is adding support for video messages to Google Duo. If you call a person on Duo and they decline or miss your call, you can leave a video or voice message that’s up to 30 seconds in length. You have the option of re-recording your video message if you’re not happy with the first take. The recipient can then view the message in their Duo app when they’re available.

Google Duo video message voicemail

If you receive a video message, you can view it by tapping on their icon in Duo. You can then tap the “Call now” button to call them back after viewing the message. These video messages automatically disappear one day after you view them, but you do have the option of saving them to your phone if you’d like.

Google Duo video messages will begin rolling out on Android and iOS today and will be available worldwide in the coming days.

These video messages are an interesting take on voicemail for video calls. With these video messages, you can leave even more fun messages for the person you’re calling than with a plain voicemail because you can show them whatever you’re looking at, make funny faces, and much more.

Those of you who use any Google Pixel (2) or Google Nexus smartphone on T-Mobile will be happy to learn that Google’s Phone (Dialer) app has been updated to support voicemail transcriptions for T-Mobile subscribers. There have been reports of some Pixel users seeing transcriptions on their voicemails within the stock Dialer app with the note that they were “Transcribed by Google” as Android Police reported late last month.

Google’s Phone app for Android now transcribes voicemail for T-Mobile customers

Pixel and Nexus smartphone owners on T-Mobile will now have an easier time determining whether a voicemail is worth listening to. The latest update for Google’s Phone app adds “Google-powered voicemail transcriptions for T-Mobile USA customers.” That sounds very similar to what Google Voice customers are already familiar with. When someone leaves you a voicemail, Google does its best to transcribe that message and puts the text right in the voicemail tab. It’s not always terribly accurate, but gives a very quick idea of whether it’s an important missed call or some nonsense spam about a free vacation or impending doom over owed taxes.

Google spells out that this feature is available exclusively to T-Mobile users right now, which can be…

T-Mobile customers are now seeing voicemail transcripts in Google Phone app

The Google Phone app already has a dedicated visual voicemail tab that allows users to listen to and delete voicemails quickly. It’s a huge improvement over the clunky voicemail dialing we used to have to endure. However, some T-Mobile users, myself included, are now seeing transcriptions by Google there as well, making the process even easier. This capability was added to the Phone app back in November.

We received a tip from a T-Mobile user who sent a screenshot our way, at which point I realized that I also had a voicemail transcription thanks to a scam call I’d missed.

Google Phone v14 prepares to offer voicemail transcriptions for other carriers and automatically correct international phone numbers [APK Teardown]

A new version of the Google Phone app began rolling out this weekend with a few bug fixes and some new hints about what may be coming in the future.

However, a teardown of this update reveals that the Phone app will automatically correct prefixes when you make a call to international numbers and it may begin offering voicemail transcriptions on behalf of carriers.
