Listen to voicemail messages

Whenever you receive an AOL Voicemail message, the AOL service will send you a notification email informing you that you have received a voice message. This email will contain an audio copy (.mp3 file) of the voice message left by the caller, and it will be sent by the Username "AOL Voicemail." In the AOL software, the voicemail will be marked with a small telephone icon instead of the envelope icon for traditional emails. Just as with other mail, you can forward or save the email containing the voice message.

In order to access the voicemail from any computer or phone, you can use any of the means given below:

  • email: Each email will have an audio link attachment. By clicking the Listen Now link, you can hear the voicemail message through your computer's speakers. This live streaming feature of voicemail was re-activated on September 1, 2009. This feature wont work on the voicemails you received between August 5, 2009 and September 1, 2009. You can also download the attached voice message from your inbox and listen to it on a standard media player such as Winamp or Windows Media Player.
  • Web: You can retrieve the voice message using AOL Voicemail Dashboard.
  • Phone: You can listen to your voicemail via phone using the toll-free number 1-800-AOL-1234.

Note: The above-mentioned features apply only to registered Usernames. All secondary Usernames will continue to receive email notifications with envelope icons. The email will only have the audio file attachment (without the listen now option). If you wish to listen to the email, you'll need to download the attached voice message from your inbox and listen to it on a standard media player such as Winamp or Windows Media Player.
