When you switch over to iPhone, you spend some time getting everything set up. And one of the items you likely cross off your list at some point is setting up your voicemail. But after you set it up, there are plenty of actions you can take to manage your iPhone voicemail and the messages you receive.
You can play, share, or delete messages as well as change your greeting if you like. If you’re new to iPhone, this tutorial shows you how to manage those Voicemail options.
Two years ago, jailbreak tweak developer Elias Limneos revolutionized the way iPhone users interact with voicemail with a release called AnsweringMachine. Now, that very same tweak has been updated with official support for iOS 11, and it has been rebranded as AnsweringMachine X.
AnsweringMachine X reincarnates the legacy of what some might consider one of the best jailbreak tweaks ever devised for the iPhone. With it, users can replace Apple’s joke of a native voicemail handler with something far more useful in terms of functionality.
Sending your friends voice recordings on messenger platforms such as iMessage, WhatsApp or Threema is surely not everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s hard to overlook its rising popularity in certain circles. Be it for faster communications or text weariness amongst younger people, voice messages are rife in chats today and that is despite the one clear downside they have: unlike texts, they are not very discreet, which makes them basically unobtainable in a host of potential situations.
Understanding the (circumstantial) issues with voice messages, Apple were the first to offer voicemail transcriptions in iOS 10 and now Textify joins the cause to bring a similar service to an even wider audience. The speech recognition app provides spoken word-to-text transcriptions for all your favorite messenger platforms including iMessage, WhatsApp, Threema, and Line. And suffice it to say that it wouldn’t be on iDB if it was not surprisingly powerful at that. Here’s how it works.
One of the more useful features for iPhones that comes packed inside of Apple’s new iOS 10 release is voicemail transcription, which transcribes your voicemails into text so you can read them rather than listen to them.
The feature is available to users in the United States and it’s very much still in its beta stages despite the fact that iOS 10 is now a public firmware, but if you want to know how to use it, or to see if you can use it yet, then you’ll be happy to know it’s quite easy to follow.
iOS' voicemail system has always had a lot to be desired. On the other hand, a new jailbreak tweak called AnsweringMachine aims to fill all the gaps that users have wanted for the iPhone for ages.
In this review, we'll talk about what you can do with AnsweringMachine and show you why it's a significant upgrade from the stock voicemail system.
WhatsApp Messenger was updated this morning with an interesting enhancement in the form of ability to leave other people voice messages on the service. “When placing a WhatsApp call, you now quickly leave a voice message if your call isn't answered, just like voicemail,” read release notes accompanying WhatsApp's 2.16.8 update on the App Store. Since enabling Voice over IP (VoIP) calling a year ago, more than 100 million voice calls are made on average every day via WhatsApp, or more than 1,100 VoIP calls a second.
iOS 10 was shown off at WWDC 2016 on Monday, and with all of the new features Apple brought to the table, the Phone app is certainly one of the spotlights that deserves attention.
Apple's new Phone app in iOS 10 is going to get a lot of useful new features to make using the phone aspect of your iPhone a whole lot better.
iOS has at long last made it easy to share your iPhone voicemails with other people in Mail messages and Messages chats. Also, AirDrop lets you send voicemails to nearby devices and you can even save them as notes or voice memos. In this tutorial, you will learn how to share and forward your iPhone voicemails via Mail, Messages and AirDrop.
Since its inception the iPhone has supported Visual Voicemail, a feature that lets you see a list of your voicemails and choose which one to interact with without having to wade through all of them.
These messages are saved forever until you manually delete them, or your carrier erases them. Keep in mind that your carrier might not support the Visual Voicemail feature at all.
If you have set up and use Visual Voicemail on your iPhone, voicemails people leave in your inbox can quickly pile up, causing not just unnecessary clutter in the interface but also wasting your iPhone's precious storage space.
Follow the instructions provided in this tutorial to delete unwanted voicemails and claim back the storage space they occupy.
Did you know that you have the ability to save voicemails as notes or voice memos, or share them directly as audio files with Messages, Mail or Airdrop?
This can prove quite useful, if you ask me. Before iOS 9, your voicemails were confined to the Phone app as there was no way to get them out of there.
In addition, saving voicemails as voice memos lets you trim the audio in the Voice Memos app before sharing them with others.
A Siri-powered voicemail service for iPhones is in the works and it will transcribe your voicemail messages, if a report published Monday by Business Insider is anything to go by.
Writer James Cook claims that Apple employees are already testing an upcoming voicemail service “which uses Siri to answer your calls and transcribe voicemail messages.”
