Google will launch the long-awaited, new, upgraded Android 11 version on June 3 2020. The new setup is expected to take the tech game a notch higher, bringing in brand new features that are guaranteed to excite many enthusiastic users of the product. Even with this new development, the messaging feature is especially of interest to many since it is a common feature used on a day-to-day basis.
Deleting Voicemail Messages on Your Android 11
In these modern times, when we can get lots of information punched on simple text messages, most people hate the idea of having to deal with “outdated” voicemail messages. In fact, many ask: what can be done to turn off the bothersome messages?
You do not have to call your service provider or visit a retail outlet to do this. There are some simple ways you can use to turn off the messages without a hassle.
Let us explore a few of these:
Use the “No More Voicemail app”:
This app will work reasonably well with your Android 11. The app typically provides users with a code to set up a feature known as the “conditional call forwarding.” Basically, the app is designed in such a way that once you don’t answer, your caller will keep hearing a ringing tone that never ends. That is the general secret to putting an end to voicemail messages.
Follow the steps to set up the “No More Voicemail.” Remember that you will primarily need to launch the “No More Voicemail App”, key in your email address, and adhere to the instructions displayed on your Android 11 screen. Further, the instructions provided will direct you to call a specific phone number and, thus, activate the call forwarding mechanism.
You can get the app in the Google Play Store.
This is how to download, install and set it up:
Go to “Google Play Store.” In the search bar, type “No More Voicemail.” The app will appear. Tap on out. Click on “Install.” Follow the prompts and select “Accept.” Open the icon for “No More Voicemail.” Select “Get Started.” You will find this in the bottom section of the screen. Enter your email address. This is what you will use for the newly created account for “No More Voicemail.” Click on “Sign Up,” “Setup,” then “Call Activation Code.” This instantly prompts your Android 11 to call a specific number. Click on “Confirm Call” and allow time for this call to disconnect and revert to the “No More Voicemail.” Tap on “I confirm I followed the Steps.”
Now, you are sure your voicemail inbox will no longer be jammed with messages.
On your Android 11, go to settings. You can do this starting the procedure from “the pull-down notification” feature. Alternatively, you can go to the “App Drawer” and “launch Settings”. Open the “Settings App”, navigate downwards and select “Apps.” In case you determine that the tab located on the upper part of the “Apps Screen” is not set to the “All Apps,” make sure you fix it. You will find a list containing all the apps, as indicated by the “All Apps” tab. This list will quickly display on your phone or tablet.
Navigate downwards again and click on the “Phone App.” On locating the app’s information page, click on “Storage Menu.” Click on “Clear data” box. You will find it under “Storage.” When a prompt comes up to ask if you are sure, confirm this by clicking on “OK.” With this, the process is over; you will not get the unwanted voicemail messages.
Regardless, sometimes you may receive the icon for voicemail notification even if there is no voicemail on the inbox. You can follow this process to remedy this: Click on and keep holding the icon for “voicemail notification” (it is located on the notification bar). The menu on “App information” will come up. Tap on it.
On the following tab, you will find some information on the “Phone app”. Click on the button for “Force Stop.” The voicemail notification will instantly disappear.
Another alternative is to go to “Settings” then “Apps.” Select “Phone.” Tap on the button for “Force Stop.” The notifications should instantly clear.
Click on the “Voice App.” Open the “App”. Go to the “Voicemail tab.” Open it. Click on “More.” Click on the box for “I understand”. Finally, “Delete.”
Simply call your voice mail. Pump up the mail space with lots of music until it is full. Make sure the mailbox is actually full. To keep it full, take care that you do not accidentally delete the recorded music.
Up to this point, voila! You are guaranteed the voicemail messages are no more. Caution: In case the messages have a cut-off time, you may have to repeat this process a few times.
Hopefully, you are now fully insulated from the voicemail messages and ready to enjoy the features on your Android 11.
