Would it be possible to get voicemail transcription added into the stock Samsung visual voicemail app? Voicemail transcription transcribes your voicemail's to text so that you can read them instead of having to listen to them. This comes in handy in noisy environments, or when needing to listen to many voicemail's at once or when you need to copy the contents of a voicemail to text. Samsung could even choose to incorporate this into a Galaxy AI feature and offer enhanced features over standard voicemail transcription like better transcriptions for callers who left a voicemail in a crowded noisy area, etc. 

In addition, I think the Visual Voicemail app could use some optimization. When deleting/playing multiple messages in quick succession, the playback of messages always stops and has to be restarted. 

Call Screening Feature: Would allow you to read a live transcription of voicemail messages as the caller is leaving a message and would allow you as the user to join the call at any time while the message is bring left.

@userzbC3NRxlWI You are describing voice mail transcription. This doesn't necessarily have anything to do with visual voicemail. Visual voicemail just give you a file manager like view of your messages so that you can access them in any order.

The easy way to get transcription is to use Google Voice. Sign up for a Google voice number and then assign that as your voicemail number. Then you will get an email whenever you get a voicemail. The email will contain the transcription of the message.

The voicemail transcriptions would show in the Visual Voicemail app. That's what I was trying to get at.

I'm going to look into setting up call forwarding to send my unanswered calls to my Google Voice number/voicemail for now.
