Voicemail Control in the lounge + hub (rewind/Fast Forward)

Post by Neubiee » Wed Apr 22, 2009 3:06 pm

It would really be beneficial if there was a fast forward/rewind button in the voicemail playback in the Lounge and also on the hub itself. Similar to an answering machine where you can back up or forward 5 seconds.

Like today I received a long voicemail... I missed something in the middle of the message.. I had to playback all the way from the beginning.

<i know i could have downloaded it - saved it- opened it winamp and reviewed it.. but you know!>

Thats what I would have done. My voicemail gets forwarded to my email, its easy to listen to any part of the voicemail from there.

On the Hub itself, you can press and hold the fast-forward/rewind button to move around within the message. In the Lounge, we're looking into upgrading the player to include a progress bar which will also allow you jump to a specific location.

When I hold the fast forward button it just repeats a partial phrase over and over and starts over at the beginning of the playing voicemail.

Hmm, I just tried it and it seems to work for me, both forward and backward. What do other folks see?

Well, I tried it again today and for some strange reason it now seems to work for me!
