Eavesdrop with Voxox This Valentine's Day

Posted by Tristan Barnum on Mon, Feb 14, 2011 @ 05:24 AM

Like most people out there, if I don’t recognize the number, I don’t pick up the phone. Although this method of screening works "60 percent of the time, every time," sometimes I wish I had just taken the chance and answered after realizing it was someone I actually wanted to talk to—not to mention the hassle of listening to a voicemail and then playing phone tag to get them back on the line! (But that's a whole different story and of course Voxox has a solution for that as well... check out Voicemail Transcription.)

Luckily for people like me, Voxox comes equipped with a personal assistant who takes the caller's name before the phone even rings, and from there you can decide if you’d like to answer, direct the call to voicemail, or just decline their call all together. To further exhaust the awesomeness of this personal assistant feature, Voxox also has a little something we like to call "Eavesdrop," a modern-day version of the perks you used to get with a 90's answering machine.

Here's how it works... let's say someone is calling from a number that's not programmed to my contacts. My personal assistant takes their name and strangely enough, it doesn't ring a bell so I send the caller to voicemail. With Eavesdrop, as they are leaving a message I can listen in in real time and pick up  mid-message if I I hear some interesting keywords like "Happy Hour" or "free massage."

No more listening to voicemail after the fact. No more awkward introductions or being stuck on the phone with that guy you hoped would lose your number.

If I haven't convinced you yet, here is yet another reason to make Voxox your friend... Have a blind date this Valentine's Day?  Get the Voxox free phone number so you can use call screening with the Personal Assistant and Eavesdrop, should the date turns out to be a dud. Oh and make sure you check out our Valentine's Day FREE T-shirt contest on Facebook too, which ends at 6pm today.

So, what are you waiting for?  Go get Voxox!
