Voice mail is one of the oldest ways to communicate with someone who is not available. It’s likely that it was before the time of the Internet. Texting, emails, and social media are quickly replacing the good old fashion voice mail. It is still on the decline, but not dead. Many people still use the voice mail for many reasons.

What is a voicemail?
A voice mail is a short greeting in a voice over a telephone answering machine in which a caller can leave a message in an answering machine in the event that the called person is unavailable to take the call. A voice mail message can also include a telephone number to reach the called party.
The term “voicemail” is derived from the phrase “voice message.” The concept of voice mail is pretty straight-forward: you can leave a message for someone, and they can hear it by calling in. These messages can be saved, forwarded and deleted as you see fit.
