Google Voice voicemail capabilities far outstrip simple answering machines with its seemingly endless options. You can receive messages on the Web or using your phone. You can record custom greetings, set security using PINs, add notes to voicemails, restrict voicemail access by phone, send all calls to voicemail automatically (or send just specific callers to voicemail), and much more.
If you’ve set up a Google Voice account, you’ve already got voicemail built in—how easy is that? Voicemail comes automatically with all Google Voice accounts.
By default, voicemail is enabled on your Google Voice phone number. So you don’t have to lift a finger to set it up.
