Sprint Visual Voicemail now with Voicemail-To-Text service
Nov 4, 2010 8:33 PM –
Five minutes ago I was presented with a message stating that the voicemail application needed to be updated on my Evo. Great! I use YouMail anyway but I thought I’d update anyway to see what new features are added (if any). Behold a new service called Voicemail-To-Text for Visual Voicemail users.
Voicemail-To-Text is a service that will transcribe your voicemail into text and then presented into the Voicemail app. This would make it easier to see what’s said on the voicemail at a a glance. It could be useful while in an area that may require you to have your phone on silent (work, library, opera performance). The service offers a free trial for 30 days to start. Once the trial is up, the subscription will automatically cancelled and then remind you if you’d like to upgrade to the monthly service priced at $1.99 per month.
I haven’t been able to find a press release any information anywhere that stated this update would be forthcoming. I’m unable at this time to tell what devices it will effect but for now expect any Sprint device running Android using Visual Voicemail will get this update through the market.
