There has been discussions around supporting Voicemail in Empathy, see bug #640172. The current suggestion is to add this to the roster. In the designs below the Voicemail functionality is added at the top of the roster.
The design below shows three views:
- Information to the user that there are new voicemails
- Showing details of the voicemails (with the numbers showing the length of the voicemail)
- Generic voicemail
Functionality: An expander, icon and message appears at the bottom of the roster when there are new voicemail(s) to alert the user. To see the details of the voicemail messages, the user left click on the expander to get the list of messages. The user right clicks on the message she wants to hear and will be presented with two options: Listen and Delete.
