This app was designed to make it easy to access all your voice messages through a single app. You do not need to dial a special USSD code to access your inbox anymore. Verizon Visual Voicemail has been designed to mimic a messaging app. The user interface is straightforward and will display all your voice messages like a list of texts.

Content and Features 4/5

Both voice mail, as well as premium visual voice mail, go for $2.99 a month for each phone. Verizon Visual Voicemail and basic visual voicemail are all bundled with your smartphone contract with Verizon.

All your messages will be transcribed on the screen, and you can as well return calls or send messages from the voicemail tab. Likewise, you still have the option of calling the voicemail the old-school way. All these make it very quick and convenient to access your messages without having to go through numerous menus or USSD codes.

Other great features include support for voicemail alerts on wearable devices. You can also group your voicemail notifications in the notifications bar. After the Android Nougat update, the app now supports multi-window mode. You can now easily use other applications as you access your voicemail.

User Experience 3/5

This app was last updated in 2016. Therefore, it has many bugs that have not been addressed ever since. Some users have complained about the application crashing from time to time. Some users have claimed that the app does not work at all.

All the users who have had issues with the app also claim that support is slow to respond and when they finally do, they don’t provide good solutions. During setup, the app might at times fail to complete the process, leaving users frustrated. Most of these complaints came primarily from the owners of Motorola phones.

Compatibility 5/5

Verizon Visual Voicemail works on a wide range of devices. If you have an iDevice, you can set it up via the native Visual Voicemail app by liking it with Verizon. There is also a dedicated app for Android devices running on OS version 3.0 and up.

Conclusion

Verizon disbanded the Visual Voice Mail on 7th August 2016. After this, all users were automatically switched to the free basic voicemail offering. This option still enables you to receive and check voice messages by dialing *86 in your device’s dialer. All in all, the service provides a lot of simplicity when it comes to handling your voicemail.
