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??
Can any of the mods here take this feedback up with relevant Rogers team(s) as a feature request?
Is there a page that we customers can suggest /request features to Rogers like many others companies have for their products and services?
Sadly no Canadian carrier supports this feature even though it has been nearly two years since native support was introduced in Android. Here is an opportunity for Rogers to be the first.
Maybe this will get Rogers attention! Competition is always good! 😉
Telus now offers Android visual voicemail for Google Pixel, Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P
Just figured I'd give this a bump. Was inspired to look into this since I bought a Pixel 4 XL from Google and am wonderfully free to switch carriers. I find it quite interesting that Telus has offered Android Visual Voicemail for years, and Rogers hasn't made any attempt to even pretend they are looking into this for their customers who use Android devices.
I can't say that I am upset that the option to pay $10/month for a subpar app is no longer offered (https://about.rogers.com/2013/06/12/how-do-i-set-up-visual-voicemail/), but it seems that when it was decommissioned, it would have been a good time to consider your android customers instead of leaving them with a subpar $7/month SMS transcription as the only option.
Since Telus offers the (actually useful) native functionality for free, I'll be looking into their services since Rogers hasn't really shown much interest in offering value to their customers. I would be pleased to see a date that this will be available, but I expect a generic, non-committal response (if any response at all). I suggest searching "Telus Visual Voicemail for Android" to see what you aren't being offered... Especially if you pay $7/month for poor SMS transcriptions.
P.S... The Telus turnaround in a similar thread was 16 months. This thread was created ~4 years, 4 months ago without any action whatsoever. The 6th reply in the Telus thread was that it was available. This message has 76 replies with no action.
Multiple conversations here as well. https://communityforums.rogers.com/t5/Android/Android-Visual-Voicemail/m-p/431996#M52596 has 26 replies for example.
It looks like Freedom Mobile offers it as well, with cheaper plans that Rogers offers. Figured I would mention that, since that seems to be the only time Rogers actually reacts and tries to compete (Like the $60/10GB plan I obtained, which Rogers has since changed to $65/15GB a month).
