What is voicemail to text?

Voicemail to text (sometimes called “voicemail transcription”) takes the audio for your voicemails and transcribes it into text. So instead of having to listen to potentially long-winded messages, you can simply read them. You can think of it as turning your voicemail messages into the equivalent of text messages. It is a very fast way to get through your voicemail messages, as it makes voicemail as easy and efficient as email or SMS.

Not only is that faster, but it means you can even take care of voicemails messages left for you when you’re in a place where you can’t listen to them, like a meeting, letting you respond more quickly and conveniently.

With voicemail to text, you’ll find that you rarely if ever have to listen to a voicemail any more (unless you want to, because it’s from your children or a close friend). But you'll still have the option to listen to voicemail messages the same way you do now.
