    Howdy all,

    I switched from AT&T to Verizon so I could get the Pixel XL, but I haven't found the VZW Voicemail app in the PlayStore.

    What are you all using?

    Thanks,
    - Bob

    I am using the stock voicemail mail app within the phone dialer. When I first set it up it had handy help screens to complete. It actually worked without issues, it's been a while since I've used the carrier voicemail as I've been Google voice, but since the stock app works with Verizon why not.

    Thanks, as a long time Samsung user I did not know this was there.

    Does Verizon still charge for visual voicemail?

    I have a Google Voice phone number, I don't usually use it. However I do use the visual voicemail feature for it. When you go to set it up it will say that your carrier does not support it, but go ahead and continue because it works anyway.

    There is no charge for 'basic' visual voice mail. There is another tier that costs more.. but I'm not sure what else it gives you... (possibly larger storage).

    This is the only bug I'm dealing with now - visual voicemail for me hasn't worked since I got the pixel yesterday afternoon. I have a ticket in with VZW - I get an odd error message 9999 "something went wrong" and an instruction to call customer support. They have tried everything imaginable so far - provisioned and reprovisioned but no joy. I can get my VM manually but the visual part is not working at all as of now for me.

    Problem with the phone dialer is that you have to open it to see how many messages you have. The separate app was much easier.

    Is your phone from Verizon or the Google store?

    You could have stayed with ATT and got the Pixel direct from Google.

    I was told by VZW C/S that visual voice mail was now free. Can anybody suggest an app to use?

    It should work through the phones dialer. A tab for voicemail that is.

    I believe you are correct - think twice - post once - or maybe not at all -

    I have the Verizon XL and there is a tab on the dialer all the way to the right that is the visual voicemail.

    You don't need a separate app. It is part of the phone log. You have to enable visual voicemail in the call settings. Settings>Call>Voicemail. mine stopped working and even though visual voicemail was enabled the tab disappeared. I had to turn it off and turn it back on to get the tab to reappear.

    Yeah it's in the stock dialer. Works pretty good. I missed it for awhile BC I didn't notice it was there. Lol

    Do you still have to subscribe to visual voicemail or can I cancel my extra subscription with Verizon and still get the visual voicemail on my pixel xl?

    Basic Visual Voicemail is free from Verizon. Upgrading to Premium gives you text transcriptions of your messages and I think you might get more storage. With the Pixel, as already stated, voicemail is the fourth tab in the Dialer app, so no need for a separate app.

    Does the stock transcribe?

    If you're asking if the Dialer app displays the text transcription if you pay for premium, the answer is yes. When you tap the message in the list, the text is displayed along with playback controls.

    No, for instance I'm on AT&T and get transcribed VM on my iPhone standard. I don't pay anything extra.

    iPhone is a special case, I believe. I dont think standard VM rules apply there. There are free VM alternatives for that for Android or the pay options like YouMail Premium or Verizon VVM.
