Although this update does not include any changes that affect Orion connectivity, we wanted to go ahead and get it to those of you who liked the idea of early access to app updates.
If you’ve experienced the issue where the voicemail tab has disappeared from the Phone app you may have noticed in our Help Article that the workarounds vary, depending on the phone model and what kind of SIM card it has. With this update to the Republic app, those for whom the only workaround was to uninstall updates to the Phone app can now instead use the “Enable visual voicemail” option.
So, if you are still missing your voicemail tab or if you reclaimed it by uninstalling updates to the Phone app, you can take these steps instead.
- Update the Republic app when 18.104.22.168 is available to you.
- Update the Google Phone app if you’ve had updates uninstalled.
- Open the Phone app and tap the three dot menu icon at top left.
- Tap Settings
- Tap Voicemail
- Make sure the “Visual Voicemail” option is enabled. (The slider needs to be to the right, and blue.)
Of course, we remain eager to hear of any connectivity experiences you may have!
