Q: How does the Smart Greeting actually work?
A: A ‘smart greeting’ greets your caller like this “Hi John, you’ve reached Nancy, who is unavailable.” YouMail uses its massive Caller ID database and your address book, and then it generates a custom voicemail greeting that includes their name. It sounds just like a person answered the phone for you. If YouMail can’t figure out who is calling, YouMail just doesn’t say their name.
Q: Can I still record my own voicemail greetings?
A: Yes, you can record your own greetings. In fact, you can record a greeting that everyone hears, or a lot of specific greetings that only individuals hear. You can record a special voicemail greeting for your spouse, parents, clients or partner. You can even record some greetings in one language, like English, and another greeting in another language, Spanish for example.
Q: Can I use prerecorded voicemail greetings?
A: Absolutely. You can either choose from the many thousands of greetings in our community of greetings
, which has funny greetings, political greetings and much more. Or you can upload any wav or MP3 file as your greeting. This is where you can get creative. Many customers also opt to record a professional greeting.
Q: How much work is it to create custom voicemail greetings?
A: It’s no work at all if you use the Smart Greeting, as YouMail does that automatically. Recording a greeting is a just a few taps on our iPhone visual voicemail app or Android visual voicemail app – and a few more taps to set up the right people you want to hear it. Using a voicemail greeting from our collection of funny greetings only takes a few minutes to surf the community. Once you’ve chosen something, the process is effortless. (You can’t do this with your Sprint, AT&T, Verizon or T-mobile voicemails.)
