So android's latest OS marshmallow is finally getting native visual voicemail support.
What are the chances of this getting implemented by Rogers? I understand that it is a carrier side feature that needs to be activated or something. iOS has had this for years so it shouldn't be too complicated for Rogers to accomplish?
Is this wishful thinking??

...Wait, you guys haven't figured out that Rogers is well behind the times yet? HA, what a joke if you think they'd update anything RON still uses NPAPI (deceloped in 1995 by the way!) despite all major browsers ending support for it!
Internet Explorer - dropped support for this in version 5.5 SP2 due to "security reasons"
Google Chrome - dropped support for this in 2014 due to "NPAPI's 90s-era architecture has become a leading cause of hangs, crashes, security incidents, and code complexity"
FireFox - will phase this out by end of 2016 & it already doesn't work in 64 bit FireFox.
Yeah sure it'd be great to have visual voice mail right out the gate if you have an android drive, but lets face it... Robbers... oops I mean Rogers wants their piece of the pie to, and everyone knows, you can't just have a single piece of delicious pie... so don't support the feature, don't give your clients something new and shiney..... more pie for them!

What if you were to tell a service rep that you bought an unlocked iphone and are using that now, and they activate the iphone visual voicemail, wonder if that would trick the system to make it work?
I don't know anymore, its not that big of a deal, its just the general lack of caring from the company. They are making money hand over fist yet they can't help us out with a tiny thing... blah

this is starting to upset me. They won't activate this service, I have paid for premium voicemail to text instead even though it is a half baked solution. But that won't even work on my phone. I have spoken to a few techs and they have not been able to get it to work for like a month. What am I paying for?? Stop forcing your garbage solutions on us and give us what we want....

What manufacturer agreement would that even be? I have a google nexus 6P, VVM is supported natively in the OS just the same is apple devices. I can't speak for samsung devices or sony etc. The only thing stopping this from working is Rogers as far as I am concerned.

Rogers: Support native visual voicemail on Android. Stop mucking around, and do it.
Community: In the meantime, I've been using YouMail and it does a pretty good job if you're willing to purchase the premium subscription

Is someone using a Google Pixel with the premium voicemail to text add-on, can confirm that it is still not showing in the phone app? Is the voicemail tab showing in the phone app at all?
