Open voicemail from an email notification

Genesys Cloud sends you an email notification when you receive a voicemail. To listen to the voicemail, open the .wav file that is attached to the email notification.

  • If your administrator enables voicemail transcriptions for your organization, your notification includes a transcript of the voicemail content.
    • You receive transcriptions in the language that you selected for Genesys Cloud. For more information, see User settings.
    • Depending on the length of the voicemail, a transcription can take a few minute to process.
  • If your administrator enables voicemail notifications for your HIPAA-enabled organization, you receive email notifications of new voicemail messages. 
    • Voicemail notifications for HIPAA-enabled orgs do not contain personally identifiable information (PII).
    • Because email transcriptions can include PII, Genesys Cloud does not provide transcriptions in voicemail notifications for HIPAA-enabled organizations.
  • The .wav files for longer voicemail messages can exceed 10 MB. If a voicemail message causes the email notification to exceed 10 MB, Genesys Cloud does not attach the recording. Instead, you receive a message that the attachment is too large. You can listen to the voicemail in your inbox.
