Some good third-party voicemail services include eVoice, Google Voice, YouMail, Ribbit and Jott. All of these are visual third-party voicemail services, which means users can manage messages in a similar fashion to an email account, choosing which message to listen to out of a list.
Businesses are more likely to benefit from eVoice, since they can route a toll-free number to any phone. Businesses can also route incoming calls with screening capabilities to specific departments. Google Voice allows users to link its app to other company services such as Gmail. It also provides voice-to-text transitions on voicemail messages. YouMail allows users to customize phone call and text greetings for different phone numbers. A premium version offers transcribed voice messages sent directly as email or text.
Ribbit is one of the third-party voicemail services that allows users to make phone calls while online and route calls to any device. It also features strong organizational functions that help users handle their call information, schedule meetings and perform other task management operations. Jott was originally created as an alert and productivity tool that reminds users about appointments, meetings and deadlines but has since integrated third-party voicemail capabilities into these functions for enhanced effectiveness.
