If you’ve ever used Google Voice in the past, you’d know that the handy voicemail transcription feature can prove to be not-so-handy at times. In fact, much of the time voicemail transcriptions turn out to be hilariously incorrect.
Google knows this, which is why it started asking users about a year ago to send in voicemails to the company for research and system improvement purposes. Thanks to those users who chose to help out, Google has just announced some major improvements are coming to the service that will help to deliver much more accurate transcriptions.
With the use of a “long short-term memory deep recurrent neural network”, the company has cut down voicemail transcription errors by a massive 49%. To begin receiving these new improvements, you don’t have to do anything at all. The updates should have already made their way to your account, so you don’t even need to update the app in the Play Store.
Now that the service is much more improved, you might want to give Google Voice a shot. If you’d like to sign up, head to this link. Then be sure to download the Android app by following the link attached below.
