In this tutorial, we will guide you on how to clear voicemail notifications on your Android device. Voicemail notifications can be annoying and clutter up your notification panel, so it’s important to know how to remove them when you no longer need them.

Step 1: Open the Phone App

To clear voicemail notifications, start by opening the Phone app on your Android device. The Phone app is usually represented by a telephone icon and can be found on your home screen or in the app drawer.

Step 2: Access Voicemail

Once you have opened the Phone app, look for the voicemail icon or tab. It is usually located at the bottom of the screen or in the navigation menu. Tap on it to access your voicemail.

Step 3: Listen to Voicemail

To clear a voicemail notification, you need to listen to the voicemail first. Tap on the voicemail message that you want to clear. This will open up a screen where you can play back the message.

Note: If you have multiple voicemails, make sure to listen to each one before proceeding with clearing their respective notifications.

Step 4: Clear Voicemail Notification

After listening to the voicemail message, go back to the main voicemail screen. You will now see that the voicemail notification has been replaced by a checkbox or an option similar to “Mark as read” or “Clear notification.”

  • If there’s a checkbox: Checkmark the box next to each voicemail message and then tap on a button like “Clear” or “Delete” at the bottom of your screen.
  • If there’s an option: Tap on the “Mark as read” or “Clear notification” option to remove the voicemail notification.

Step 5: Verify Cleared Notifications

To ensure that the voicemail notifications have been successfully cleared, swipe down from the top of your screen to open the notification panel. Check if the voicemail notification is no longer present.


  • Disable Voicemail Notifications: If you wish to completely disable voicemail notifications, you can contact your mobile service provider and ask them to disable this feature for you.
  • Regularly Check Voicemail: It’s a good practice to check your voicemail regularly so that you can clear any new messages and notifications promptly.

Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to clear voicemail notifications on your Android device.

By following these steps, you can keep your notification panel clean and organized. Remember to listen to each voicemail before clearing its respective notification for proper management of your voicemails.
