Many thanks for posting the forum. Know that we are here to help. Keep in mind that the Xfinity Visual Voicemail app is not supported/compatible with Android devices that were released in 2019.
If you have an Android device released prior to 2019, the Xfinity Visual Voicemail app does have full functionality. When you get a chance, reach out to me privately so that you can authenticate your account and I can do further research.
In your private reply, please include the following information;
First and last name, mobile number, complete service address, and the last 4 digits of the pay method on file.
Thanks again for your continued time and patience.
Add me to the list, too. Brand new Note 20 Ultra. Moved over from Verizon. Visual Voicemail doesn't work.
Says to call Xfinity at Toll Free number for help. I've spoken to at least three different Tech Support people and they couldn't help. Apparently advanced tier level support created a ticket for my issue.
Grrrrrr. I am so disappointed that I left Verizon for this.
I have same problem.
I switched from Verizon to Xfinity. Activated new iPhone 12 Pro (old phone was Google Pixel XL).
Xfinity support is directing me to Apply support - no solutions so far.
Of course, the native visual voicemail app should "just work." But if it still does not work for your device, at least other options are available to probably will work. Have you tried a third-party VM app like Youmail?
Yep. I've called customer service probably half a dozen times on this. I have a Galaxy A71 phone that I just acquired late 2020. Not once has any customer service rep indicated to me that this was a feature that would not work on newer Galaxy phones. If I had known this initially, I would not have purchased this phone. Very happy with the phone EXCEPT for the fact that it doesn't recognize voicemails. This is in and of itself extremely troublesome, because I do not know I have voicemails unless I go into my phones number pad, and dial voicemail that way. Very lame not to mention inconvenient.
When you try to initially download the VVMail from the Play Store and try to install it, it tells you that you can't use this app and to use the voicemail app native (default) to the phone. And no, you still can't get there from here.
Xfinity really needs to fix this and all I can say at this point in time is - 'Bad Word', over?!
As usual, Xfinity customer service is terrible.
For my Galaxy S10e, I finally got the Xfinity Visual Voicemail app to install by going to play.google.com on my computer and telling it to install to my phone. A few minutes later, the app installed on my phone and seems to be working.
The app version is 2.8.0.015, according to the settings screen.
Their support article telling you to use Samsung's app is pure BS.
Thank you for sharing this, nightOwl3! Visual voicemail and VM notification finally work for me.
Xfinity silently updated Xfinity Mobile Voicemail app on 1/20/2021. This version can be installed directly from Google Play Store (no need to use the computer). The old version did not work on new phones, but this version works.
It sppears they updated the Xfinity Mobile Voicemail app for those having problems with the native android Voicemail app. Judging by what it says when it loads, it converts your voice mailbox in a way that makes it incompatible with the built in voicemail client. The built-in client is supposed to work, though. It worked on the S8+ I bought from Xfinity, and it even worked on my unlocked S10+ and the unlocked S21 Ultra I just got, but not with unlocked firmware. I had to flash Xfinity firmware to get it to work. It's nice they updated their app as a fallback, but when they say the version Samsung/Google provided is supposed to work, this is true, and is true for most people.
Also, transcription to text is generally seen as a premium option that Xfinity doesn't provide. The "Visual" part just means you can see a list of your voicemails in the app.
I have a Note9 transferred from AT&T around a year ago. Xfinity visual voicemail worked for a couple of weeks then stopped. Xfinity tech help was useless.
In addition every time I get a text message the phone says I have 8 messages.
