Voicemail as SMS text directly to a designated mobile phone
SpinVox, a provider of voice to content messaging services, and Skype have announced the availability of voicemail to text conversion for all Skype voicemail users.
SpinVox converts voice messages to text in English, Spanish, French and German. The messages are then sent by Skype as an SMS text directly to a designated mobile phone for users to read, said SpinVox.
The company has also said that Skype users can now access instant visible voicemail, and never miss important calls when they are away from Skype. Recipients of converted voicemail messages can listen to the full voice message by either signing into Skype or by calling their Skype To Go number. In addition to being able to receive voicemail as text via SpinVox, Skype users may choose instead to receive voicemail notification via SMS or for free by email.
Mike Bartlett, director of product strategy for Skype, said: Using SpinVox gives our users added flexibility and convenience over their Skype voicemails. As people continue to spend more time on the move and on their mobile devices, people want to take their Skype conversations with them. SpinVox is a great option for our users to save time on checking their Skype voicemail and receive messages immediately sent to their mobile phone.
