Apple Will Make Voicemail Obsolete
Apple tests a feature that allows Siri to answer phone calls and transcribe messages
Apple is reportedly exploring a new voice-enabled service that will allow Siri, the voice of iPhone, to answer calls. While the art of voicemail is already in steep decline—thanks to the ever-popular text message and dwindling millennial attention span—the tech innovator hopes to replace voice-recorded messages with digitally transcribed memos. The move is one of a series that is all too familiar, seemingly taking note of the onscreen relationship of Theodore Twombly and his virtual assistant in Spike Jonze’s Her.
