First of all, some interesting information:
According to Wikipedia, Voicemail is a centralized telephone message management system that allows users to receive, store and manage voice messages from callers when they are absent or on busy lines.
In its most straightforward configuration, Voicemail offers a mere answering machine service where messages arriving at a specific telephone number are stored. Still, it can also provide a much more complete service, which includes, among other advantages :
- Customize the welcome message or greeting—also the language.
- Save voice messages, associating them with the user’s phone number who left them.
- Report the date, time, and phone number of each stored message.
- Divert calls another phone number.
- Receive notifications by email.
- Ensure security and privacy by accessing it only through a specific code or password that only the user knows.
Even though some companies may highly value these functionalities, the reality is that their use has fallen quite a bit in recent years, especially at a personal level, because we use instant messaging or email in a general way.
