How to Listen to Google Voicemail
You can check your voicemail on Google Voice online or from any of your phones connected to your account. From the Google Voice site, you can browse through your voicemail, just like your emails on Gmail inbox. From any of the phone numbers connected to your account, you can listen to your voicemails sequentially by just following the voice prompts and pressing the appropriate buttons on your phone. Google Voice only works with a US phone number. If you are outside the US and would like to call using Google, you can try Google Hangouts or Gmail.
Part 1Using a Phone
Your Google number is the number that is seen at the bottom left side of the Google Voice page.
Soon after calling, you will hear an automated message asking you to press the asterisk (*) key then to enter your four-digit pin. Do so.
An automated message will then inform you how many voicemail messages you have. Follow the instructions of the message (like press 1 to listen to your voicemail).
When you’re done listening to your voicemails, just end the call.
Part 2Listening to Voicemail in Google Voice (US Residents)
Open a new web browser on your computer and go to the Google Voice website. If you’re not logged in yet, enter your Gmail email address and password into the fields provided, and click “Sign in” to continue.
Like Gmail, you can find voicemail notifications in your Google Voice Inbox. To filter your Inbox, click the “Voicemail” option on the left panel; this will show only voicemail notifications in the Inbox.
You can listen to your voicemail in any order you want; just click the play button below the profile picture of the caller and it will start playing.
Part 3Listening to Voicemail in Gmail (non-US Residents)
This means, you will be notified for every mail you get along with a voice in your Gmail inbox. You will know exactly when a new message is left.
Google voicemail is a feature available to all, but the Google Voice web page can only be accessed by US residents. So they can listen to their voicemail, non-US residents can access it through Gmail.
Open any web browser in your computer, and go to the Gmail website. If you’re not logged in yet, enter your email address and password into the fields provided, and click “Sign in.”
You will be notified for every voicemail you get in your Gmail. Check if there are any voicemail notifications in your inbox. If not there, check the Priority or Important folders on the left panel. These notifications have “voice - [email protected]
” in their subject line.
If you find any voicemail notifications, click on it to open.
After opening a notification, you will find a link in the body of the email. Clicking on it will lead you to a new window playing the voicemail.
The voicemail will be like a mp3 file with Play/Pause button and a track. If you want to skip to another part of the voicemail, click on another part of the track and the voicemail will start there
Part 4Using Hangouts to Listen to Google Voicemail (Android and iOS)
Locate the app with a green dialogue icon with the closing quotation marks in it to open Hangouts.
If you’re not logged in yet, do so. Use the Gmail email address you use for your Google Voice to log in.
Swipe right on the screen to go to your Hangouts list page (the heading should be “New Message”).
If you have any new voicemails, you’ll find unread voicemail notifications at the top of your Hangouts list. These will have the voicemail icon (like a tape deck).
Tap on the notification with the voicemail you want to listen to, and then tap the play icon to begin playing back the message.
