    Question Google Voice transcribing

    Does anyone know if Google Voice HAS to transcribe all voicemails? Meaning do I have the option to still "listen' to them? And since I just set this up my phone says "reading voicemail settings" but does not complete (the circle keeps turning). What's with this?

    I'm not sure, but have you logged into GV via computer to look at possible account settings? Might be something there as an option.

    if you have a droid why not just let it transcribe it. Its nice to be able to get the jist of what the message is without having to listen. But then when you want to listen, just click the play button and itll play your voicemail. I would suggest turning off the email notification and sms notification. The app is going to notify you anyway, so you might as well just use that. So yes you can have it transcribed and listen to it. Thats how I have it set up and its great.

    Oh. thanks. But how will the app notify me like VZ had the little icon up top? Right now I have the Voice app on my main screen of the DROID as a shortcut. Will it have a different display or something?

    You should get a little icon in the notification bar that looks like a phone indicating you've got a new VM.

    it will give you a little icon in the notification bar just like verizon does. It'll be a little black bubble with a white phone in it. One you get a vm then just open the app, or click on the icon in the notification bar, and itll take you to a list of your vms, with the transcription next to it, and under it will be a little play button. You can either play it through the earpiece, or press another button towards the right that plays it through the speaker. Its awesome

    The transcription is a little crazy... The other day my dad called me and apparently google thought he wanted to talk to me about laser canoes. I was all excited because... dude... laser canoes!

    But then I found out he just wanted me to pick him up some razer blades.

    Most of my life people have confused my real name Mark, with Mike. Just when it seems the world has learned my true name, Google Voice blatantly disrespects me everytime by transcribing Mike for Mark!
