Presenting…Jott Voicemail

January 15, 2009

There have been a lot of changes at Jott recently, and one of the most exciting is the launch of our new service, Jott Voicemail.

We’ve heard from customers for some time that we should launch a voicemail service. The reason we didn’t out of the gates is that we felt Jott could be a tool that you would actively use to get more done…sort of turbo-charging your phone. Notes, reminders, calendar entries, group notifications, blog posts, price quotes, etc. We thought voicemail was a more passive problem.

The reason we’ve jumped into the voicemail game now is that our approach fits with Jott’s orientation: deliver a set of intuitive features that allow you to take action using the tools you love. A great example: you can set reminders on your voicemail so Jott will remind you to follow-up at a certain time (just like the regular Jott reminders you already know and love). You get your voicemail transcriptions in email, but you can also organize them in lists like normal Jott notes and manage them in Jott Express or in Jott for Outlook. If you want, you can have your voicemail cc’d to another person so they can help you out.

Existing customers (we love you so), you can get 10% off your monthly bill for Jott Voicemail by entering the promo code “vm[your phone number]” (e.g. “vm2065551212″) when you sign up. You’ll also get a week free trial so you can see how great it is.

Everyone around the office has been using it for a couple of months now (as have a lot of our Beta testers - thank you) and people can’t imagine going back to “old voicemail” again. We like to say that Jott Voicemail is “voicemail that’s actually useful.” We hope you think so too.



  1. I am very interested in the new Jott Voicemail service, however I do not see an option to use it with corporate or other non-cellular phone systems. I am currently a customer of a competing transcription service and appreciate that they allow call forwarding (which I use to forward my cell phone’s voicemail) similar to what Jott advertises as well as an option to transcribe WAV or MP3 files forwarded to a designated e-mail address from my corporate VoiceMail system. As I receive more phone messages on my business nyumber, this is a dealbreaker for me and my associates and prevents us from evaluating Jott’s new VM service. Is an option planned that will allow this functionality soon? Thanks.

  2. Please offer a pay-as-you-go voicemail plan. I have been using a competitor’s service (charges per message) and would like to consolidate with Jott. I’m not willing to sign up for the monthly fee given my usage level.
