We’re proud to announce an awesome new feature in TextNow: the ability to customize your own voicemail greeting.
A several months ago we introduced free calling and free voicemail. However, when your friends reach your voicemail, they are greeted with a boring voicemail greeting.
Not anymore, you can now record your own voicemail greeting so your friends can hear you before they leave a voicemail.
Below, we will show you how to record your own voicemail greeting with the latest version of TextNow + Voice for iOS (4.4.10).
First, go to ‘Settings’ by tapping on the gear cog by the bottom left of the app.
Once you are in ‘Settings’, tap on ‘Voicemail’.
Once you are in ‘Voicemail Settings’, tap ‘Custom Greeting’. Afterwards, an audio recorder will appear near the bottom. Tap on the red record button to start recording your new voicemail greeting. Once you are finished, tap the red stop button. You can hit the play button to playback your recording. If you are unhappy with your recording, you can tap ‘New Recording’ to start over. Once you are happy with your recording, tap ‘Save’.
Voila! You have set your own new voicemail greeting. Now get your friends to call your TextNow phone number and see if they hear the new greeting.
