Changing the voicemail on your Android device is a simple process that can be done in just a few steps. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of changing your voicemail on an Android device.

Step 1: Accessing the Phone App

To change your voicemail, you will need to access the phone app on your Android device. This is usually represented by an icon that looks like a phone receiver. Tap on the phone app icon to open it.

Step 2: Opening Voicemail Settings

Once you have opened the phone app, look for the three-dot menu icon located either at the top-right corner or bottom-right corner of the screen. Tap on this icon to open a drop-down menu.

In this drop-down menu, you will find various options related to your phone settings. Look for and tap on “Settings” or “Call settings” to proceed.


The location and appearance of these options may vary depending on your Android device’s manufacturer and operating system version.

Step 3: Accessing Voicemail Settings

After tapping on “Settings” or “Call settings,” scroll down until you find an option called “Voicemail” or “Voicemail settings.” This option may be listed under different categories such as “Calls,” “Phone,” or “Advanced settings.”

Tapping on “Voicemail” or “Voicemail settings” will open a new screen with additional options related to your voicemail settings.

Step 4: Changing Voicemail Greeting

In the voicemail settings screen, you will find an option called “Greeting” or “Change greeting.” Tap on this option to proceed.

Next, you will be presented with different options for changing your voicemail greeting. These options may include:

  • Default Greeting: This option allows you to use the default voicemail greeting provided by your service provider.
  • Custom Greeting: This option allows you to record a personalized voicemail greeting. Tap on this option to proceed.

Step 5: Recording a Custom Greeting

If you have chosen to record a custom voicemail greeting, follow the prompts provided on the screen to record your message. Make sure to speak clearly and concisely.

Once you are satisfied with your recording, tap on the “Save” or “Done” button to save your custom voicemail greeting.

Step 6: Verifying Voicemail Change

To ensure that your voicemail change has been successful, call your own phone number from another device or ask a friend to call and leave a message. Check if the new voicemail greeting is played when accessing your voicemail.


If you encounter any issues during this process or if the steps mentioned above do not match your Android device’s settings, we recommend referring to the user manual provided by your device manufacturer or contacting their customer support for further assistance.

Congratulations! You have successfully changed your voicemail on your Android device. Now you can personalize it with a custom greeting that reflects your style and personality.

We hope this tutorial was helpful in guiding you through the process of changing your voicemail on an Android device. Feel free to explore other settings in the phone app and customize it according to your preferences.
