- The message play screen supports fast-forward and rewind, allowing users to get through their messages even more efficiently.
2) Enhanced Organization Tools
- Users can access any folder directly from the App, not just the Inbox, including standard Saved, Spam and Trash folders, as well as user-created folders.
- Users can turn their voicemail box into a "To Do" list by easily flagging messages for follow-up directly in the App.
3) Improved Transcription Experience
- The play screen now shows more of the transcribed message text, lessening the need to scroll.
- Users can copy and paste directly from the transcription, allowing them to easily insert message text into searches or responses.
4) Faster Voicemail Follow Up
