    Not sure why more people aren't mentioning Google Voice with it's built-in visual voice mail. Maybe I'm missing something (wouldn't be the first time) or maybe there's limitations that I don't realize.

    You get your Google Voice phone number which you don't have to use, but you can still direct your regular phone number to use the Google Voice Voice Mail. You get true visual including an actual transcription of the message so you don't even have to listen to the message if you don't want.

    How does this work? I'm interested


    I went to my dialer and don't see option for visual voicemail. I just use the AT&T one.

    Not sure I remember how exactly. But do a search to find Google Voice.

    I don't use my Google Voice phone number. But what it is is a second phone number, that if you give it to people, it can direct all calls to either your home, work, office, sell, or any other number you want to direct it to. That way, somebody doesn't have to try to reach you at several different places, but rather any phone you program into it will ring. Again, I don't use that phone number, but it has a great voice mail feature that allows you to use your own phone number and use Google Voice voicemail

    It works like YouMail thru call forwarding. Once a calls reaches voicemail, it forwards out to your Google voice number which then handles the VM. You access it either thru the GV app or Hangouts.

    Thanks for summarizing it much better than I was able to. Great short explanation.

    Are you hitting the speaker button. It's much louder when played through the speaker as opposed the hand set.

    How did you get your basic visual voicemail to work on the phone app? Mines keep saying disabled but when I go into the settings the visual voicemail is enabled.

    Only thing I can suggest is make sure the VM service selected is Your Carrier. Mine simply worked when I activated it. Seems really strange to me that so many people are having difficulties with it. Must have something to do with Verizon services somehow not communicting with the handset, maybe??

    Go into your Dialer settings, under Voicemail, make sure Visual Voicemail is turned on. If you have the service, it should work.

    Funny, but I never gave a thought to setting up Visual Voicemail. Project Fi is our carrier and Visual Voicemail was just there from day one, no looking for it, no setting it up, it was just there. Very useful feature I might add.

    I'd have Fi if my wife didn't have an iPhone. I'd still have to carry her on Verizon if I jumped to Fi, so it doesn't make sense for me to jump.

    Thanks for the help. Mine was missing also, and I had to go to settings and turn off Visual Voice Mail and then turn it back on.

    Hello! Is there no longer the option for Verizon users to have an icon/widget that shows if you have a new voicemail and launches voicemail? I miss that with the Pixel (had it on the Turbo) and if it's possible, I don't see how to do it? Thanks!

    So frustrated, my dialer doesn't have a voicemail option in the dialer settings menu. I have to be missing something. The voicemail tab just disappeared one day...

    Mine disappeared last week, but a reboot brought it back.

    I came from the Turbo as well and miss being able to put the visual voice mail icon on my home page too. It's not horrible where it is. I can't find a way to put the icon anywhere else either.

    i had the same issue fixed it by going to Phone hit the 3 dots Settings>Calls>Voicemail if Visual Voicemail is already on, turn it off and on and that should make it appear again

    I believe Visual Voice mail on the phone app only works for Verizon. Please correct me if I am wrong. I have the Advanced Visual Voicemail for Verizon and it worked immediately without anything to configure. Could see my current voicemails, transcribed and everything.

    For those that have Verizon Premium Visual Voicemail, does it have the ability to forward a voicemail to an email address? I cannot find a way to do this with Basic Visual Voicemail.
