There are many Visual Voicemail apps for android provided by other carriers, including Fido and Rogers. There's also a generic app (YouMail Visual Voicemail). Please provide this service to Koodo Android customers!!!

This has been asked for a lot before ... hopefully it happens but they've announced nothing in a while.

Just noticed that the stock Android dialer (on a Google Pixel with 8.0) has a Visual Voicemail area and it tries to activate. Got super excited. Hope it comes now that it's built into Android..

+1, Blackberry customers would like this as well. Not sure why Koodo is picking and choosing which OS it's going to provide functionality and services to. It should be across the board imo. Other carriers seem to get this..

Awesome to know Matt, I love the feature so it's good to know the functionality exists elsewhere (if the carriers support it). I wasn't even aware the other carriers offered it for BB/WM (I can't seem to find anything about Telus offering it as of this moment which is probably why Koodo doesn't).

It is baked into Google Voice ... it's just that the Google Voice App itself isn't available currently outside of the US (unless rooted).
It can also automatically send your Voicemails to your EMail.

Hopefully they allow it to be used in Canada (outside of Apps that just let you sign in & use its calling/TXT'ing features like Talkatone & GrooVe IP) at some point.

Android M added native visual voicemail in the dialer app. All Koodo has to do is enable it but they haven't. GET ON IT KOODO!

Koodo is sooooo slow on this! Cannon Koodo, make it happened. We are in 21 St century already! It is sooo lame to have to listen to "you have one new massage!..." Agrrrr....

Its because they are the discount brand. Telus rolls everything out to themselves first and Koodo follows years later. Case in point, wifi calling, VoLTE. Even Telus doesn't support native android VVM yet so don't hold your breath.
