Record multiple voice mail greetings with Project Fi's updated app, and decide which one will play
The Project Fi app, which resides in the Google Play Store, has been updated to add a new feature that makes it easier to record an outgoing voicemail message. You can now record multiple messages straight from the app, and decide which one will be employed at a given time. It seems a lot easier than having to make a call to get into the voicemail system to record a single message, and then re-record it when you want a different one to play.

The update includes bug fixes and performance updates. The app is used by subscribers of the hybrid carrier to activate their service, view monthly statements, check data usage and communicate with Project Fi support.

With Project Fi, subscribers use Wi-Fi for calls and data. When out of the range of a Wi-Fi network, the cellular networks of Sprint and T-Mobile come into play. The mobile devices used by Project Fi subscribers can compute which of the two carriers has the stronger signal at any given moment, and will use that carrier's signal when Wi-Fi is not available.

Project Fi is a Google run operation, which explains why the phones that are compatible with the service are the Nexus 6, Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P. Subscribers pay $20 monthly for unlimited talk and text, and $10 for each GB of data. Customers are given a refund for any unused data at the end of the month.

Cool new feature. Now do they have a way to download voice mails. In fact, does any carrier off this feature?

You bet! Using a desktop computer go to the fi homepage. At the bottom is a link to the Google Voice page. On that page any voice mail can be downloaded as an mp3. Also, these extra greetings you make can be assigned to groups or circles or even individuals from the Google Voice page, but the app now makes is seriously easy to record the outgoing messages. Formerly it required having a separate number/extension that was not another Google Voice number to work. So this is AWESOME!

Sweet! Thanks for the reply! My contract is up with Verizon on Feb 2nd and I'm going to be ordering my Fi sim card this week so I can switch over right away.
