San Diego -- MessageSling today announced a new voice messaging solution that will forever change the way consumers receive and respond to mobile voicemail. MessageSling's revolutionary voice messaging solution, unveiled at the DEMOfall 08 conference, allows consumers to receive and send voice and dictated text messages using simple voice commands. Freeing people from the restrictions of traditional voicemail, MessageSling's voice-activated service allows drivers to keep their hands on the wheel while staying on top of their messages.
Unlike traditional voicemail, which only allows consumers to receive voice messages, MessageSling's voice-activated service allows users to send, reply and forward voice and dictated text messages. With more and more states enacting cell phone laws, which prohibit driving while talking on handheld cell phones, MessageSling provides a safe alternative with hands-free voice messaging.
"Mobile voicemail has the potential to be so much richer than it is today," said Chris Shipley, executive producer of the DEMO Conferences. "MessageSling brings innovation to mobile voicemail and provides consumers with a real solution not only for receiving messages in their desired format, but also for sending in a way that they choose. As an early beta tester myself, I am delighted to benefit from MessageSling's ability to transfer voicemails to text messages. The days of listening to long voicemails are over for me."
MessageSling's voice-activated service brings together the most integrated solution of features including custom greetings, unlimited voicemail and contact storage, voicemail transcriptions and immediate access to messages through phone, email, SMS and online options.
A basic MessageSling service without transcriptions and hands-free features is free. MessageSling is currently in beta with general availability planned in early 2009.
