Visual Voicemail in Windows Phone Mango (Video)
One of the things that we didn’t get to see in our Ultimate Windows Phone 7.5 Mango Preview was the visual voicemail enhancements since I don’t think it was set up on the AT&T account we were using. As it turns out, when you have voicemail messages waiting and you tap your “phone” live tile, you’ll see a “Voicemail” pivot along the same axis as the call history. In the Voicemail section you’ll see the names of callers along with the day and time that they had left a message along with a play button right next to their names. Listening to each message is obvious – just press the play button. At the bottom you can turn on the louder rear speaker as well as turn on a multiple selection mode for deleting messages. In the call settings, there’s a “Visual Voicemail” on/off toggle switch as well.
Mango’s visual voicemail support makes checking voice messages so much easier since you no longer have to dial in, enter your passcode, and wait for the recordings to tell you all the instructions and whatnot before you can get your messages.
