After the Android 9 Update for Samsung Galaxy S8/S9 and Samsung Galaxy Note 8/9 Can I Access Voicemail Directly from Notifications?


  • Samsung Galaxy S8, S9
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 8, 9
  • Android 9.0 Pie


No. You may see a notification for a new voicemail, but you will not be able to listen to that voicemail directly from the notifications menus. You will need to press and hold 1 in order to access voicemail for Samsung phones with Android 9.

Additional Notes

Samsung S8 updates to Android 9 were made official in April of 2019.
