Every time you receive a new voicemail, you will receive a notification on your smartphone. Just swipe down from the status bar and tap the notification to listen to the voicemail. If you accidentally cleared the notification, you’ll need to use other methods on this list to listen to your voicemails. If you don’t receive new incoming voicemail notifications, go to Phone>Settings>Voicemail>Notifications and make sure notification alerts are turned on.

Use visual voicemail

This feature is only available with certain network providers. Additionally, some native Phone apps may not have a Visual Voicemail section, in which case you’ll need to download a third-party app. The Visual Voicemail tab in the Phone app has a voicemail icon. Once you tap that tab, you’ll see all your pending voicemails. You can save or delete them individually.

Step 1: Launch the Phone app.

Step 2: Go to Settings and select Voicemail.

Step 3: Enable voicemail transcription.

You will receive a transcript of all your voicemails, old and new, once you enable this feature. As of now, transcripts are only available in English and Spanish. You can easily share the transcript with anyone you want.
