Google Adding iPhone-Like Visual Voicemail to Android M ➝

Ryan Whitwam, writing for Android Central:

Voicemails are terrible. Anyone willing to sit through the message and talk to a machine rather than send you a text message probably doesn’t have good news. Android M will make the whole process a little less painful with native visual voicemail. It’s just a basic implementation in the preview, and it won’t work on all carriers just yet. Still, pretty cool.

I thought Android added this year’s ago, but I guess it was never built into the OS. Either way, it feels like a case of “too little, too late” — the days of voicemail being a thing are behind us. Now it’s all text messages, email, and DMs.
