Your choice in dialing software is more important than ever. With rising adoption of Live Voicemail, users relying on multi-line and voice-detection technology are finding themselves at a major disadvantage in getting calls answered. With efficient, scalable 1-to-1 communications at our core, PhoneBurner can help you adapt and capitalize.
It's available now! iOS 17 officially released on September 18, 2023 with live voicemail enabled by default. Adoption has been strong, and continues to grow across Apple devices.
According to Apple, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max, iPhone SE (2nd gen and later), iPhone 14 (including Plus), and iPhone 14 Pro get iOS 17.
Android has a similar call screening feature, however, adoption is lower as it is not enabled by default. This may change as Apple's update brings Live Voicemail deeper into the mainstream. The call experience to landline phones is unchanged.
More Apple customers let voicemail pick up so they can screen the call for context. When this happens, your message is transcribed on the contact’s phone in real-time. If they Accept, you’ll be connected to your contact to begin your conversation. The exact experience may differ based on a number of conditions, including: whether you are an existing contact, whether you are blocked by the contact or flagged as spam, and the status of the contact’s phone (e.g. locked or active).
When receiving a call on your iOS 17 device, you can expect to see a Caller ID along with certain options that include: Accept, Block, Message, or Send to Voicemail. If the caller begins to leave a message, you'll see the message transcribed live along with an option to answer the call. The exact options presented to you depend on a number of factors including: whether the caller is one of your contacts (or previously blocked), whether the number is flagged for spam, and the status of your phone (e.g. locked or active).
Multi-line dialers call 3, 5, 10, or more numbers at once, and uses voice detection technology to transfer answered calls to an agent. How can manage Live Voicemail to get a call answered, if you're not yet on the line? Yeah, we don't know either.
This is one more reason to adopt a 1-to-1 software like PhoneBurner. After 15 years and over 1 billion phone calls, we're redefining how efficient and scalable human-centric 1-to-1 communications can be.
