Activating visual voicemail

#1

Is visual voicemail supported by Republic?

I’ve searched the official voicemail help articles by BenG, but don’t see any mention of visual voicemail. I searched the forums here and this user seems to be receiving the same message as me when I turn on visual voicemail in the default Android phone app.

Here is a screenshot of the message I receive after turning on visual voicemail:

How can I activate visual voicemail, or is this not a feature Republic supports?

Thanks! To clarify, I think a definition of “visual voicemail” would help. What exactly is visual voicemail?

When I first created this thread, I thought visual voicemail was a feature that enabled users to visually read a transcribed copy of the voicemail – this is incorrect, no? However, it seems like visual voicemail just refers to the ability to access and playback voicemails without actually calling the voicemail number? After some research, I think the visual transcribing of voicemail messages to text is referred to as “voicemail to text,” no? Please correct me if I’m wrong.

Visual voicemail is the ability to see which callers left a message and selectively listen/delete those messages.

Voicemail-to-text is something different that Republic does not currently offer.
