“Employees at Apple are reportedly putting a new service through its paces, one that would allow Siri to not only answer a missed call instead of a pre-set voicemail message, but give her the ability to record and transcribe those message for users to read as text later (via Business Insider).”
I think the idea of iCloud Voicemail is excellent. The adoption of Visual Voicemail – itself an outstanding feature – has been poor1 and that’s the fault of the carriers. They have, once again, presented Apple with a problem to solve and in the process cut off one their revenue streams.
Only 10 carriers in Asia Pacific and Australasia support Visual Voicemail. ↩
