How to Check Voicemail Online


In this tutorial, you will learn how to check voicemail online.
Depending on your phone carrier, there can be more than one option to access your voicemail online.

We will demonstrate it on our favorite phone carrier: Skype. Other networks will probably have different ways of accessing your voice mails.

If you didn’t get a Skype number yet, we recommend you to get one now. This is the number that you will configure voicemail for.

Step 1. Open up a browser and log in to your Skype.

Step 3. Open up your Skype application.
From the menu bar, choose “Tools – Options”.
From the panel at the left, choose “Voice messages”.
You can checkmark now “Receive unanswered calls as a voice message”. This effectively turns on voicemail and will play your prerecorded greeting. You can now record one if you didn’t. Hit the record button to start and the stop button to stop recording. Click Play to hear it.
