Lumia 950 XL dual-SIM getting Visual Voicemail on AT&T with the latest Insider Fast Ring build
Visual voicemail is now enabled on the AT&T Lumia 950 XL dual-SIM for Windows Insiders on the Fast Ring. We were first tipped to the feature addition by a reader, and we were able to confirm that visual voicemail is indeed active on our own Lumia 950 XL (dual-SIM) running the latest Windows 10 Mobile Fast Ring build.
With visual voicemail, users will gain access to a visual interface for interactivity with and managing voicemails. It’s a pretty big feature addition, so it’s nice that it makes an appearance.
It is important to note that it’s only been confirmed visual voicemail’s appearance on a dual-SIM Lumia 950 XL connected to AT&T’s network. It’s no clear if the feature is also available for the smaller Lumia 950 or even on other networks for those on the latest Fast Ring Insider build for Windows 10 Mobile.
Another note of caution that in initial tests while you can setup visual voicemail and the Phone app does check for new messages no visual voicemail on our device. This is a known bug with the Fast Ring as pointed out in the release notes:
“Visual Voicemail notification and delivery is not working in this build; causing devices to not receive any new visual voicemails. You can manually check your voicemail by calling your voicemail to listen to any new messages. You can call your voicemail within the Phone app by clicking “…” > Settings > “Change more settings for Phone” > “Call voicemail”; this will also leave the Voicemail call in your history to make checking voicemail easier.”
Despite it not being completely functional hope springs eternal that this is the first step in visual voicemail being enabled on the Lumia 950 XL and other Windows 10 Mobile devices with dual sims.
