I've read that voicemail transcription is enabled in IOS 10 Beta 2 for those that have visual voicemail. I have a 6S Plus, and it's not working for me. I've even just recorded a new test voicemail in case the older ones wouldn't transcribe. Anyone have any luck?

There's been a lot of discussion about this in the mega-Beta 2 thread. Its working for some, not for others. No one can figure out what the differentiator is. I know that doesn't help much, but at least you know you're not alone!

We only have one carrier in the UK that provides visual voicemail, which is incredible at this point. I have to use an app called HulloMail which does a decent job, and has provided transcribed message for years, but that comes at a price. Maybe someday the rest will follow up on this, rather than making us call a mailbox

EE and O2 support it.

Boy is my face red! I've been with Three for the past few years, but tried all the others before that and they didn't support it then

I have ATT and it works. Just tried it. Love it to be honest. I don't have to listen to voicemails anymore. Haha

Are there NO other Canadian people here on beta 2 who can confirm it working or not?

For me Rogers isn't. Would like to know if anyone else on Rogers has gotten it to work or even with Telus or Bell?

is there a setting to turn on? no transcription here either on my verizon iPhone 6
I have verizon no settings changes and it works for me. Just make sure the voicemail is after you upgraded as the older ones won't.
