MIR Show – Week 44 – HulloMail, voicemail that’s yours to keep

Andy Munarriz, top chap at HulloMail, dropped in the other week to say hi and tell us about their rather nifty and revolutionary voicemail system. Andy’s rather passionate about voicemail — and whilst HulloMail offers you the standard voicemail-by-phone features, it’s got one huge, huge difference. You now own your voicemail. Instead of messages residing on some server in the middle of nowhere, they’re actually sent directly to your email for you to listen to.

And if you’re a Gmail user (for example), the power and potential of HulloMail really begins to shine through. You can keep every voicemail yourself. You don’t need to worry about constantly dialing up to retrieve messages. If you’re an iPhone user or, better, a G1 user, it’s gorgeous — because you simply click on the attachment and it plays on your handset.

Get a free account at HulloMail now and check it out (it’s free for the time being and they’re aiming to offer premium services and fund the free service with advertising).

You can see it working in the video below…

An interesting and disruptive play on voicemail – enjoyed it. Subtly different to Spinvox in making the VM actually your content to do with as you please. Transcription would be nice.

Great to now see two VM alternatives in the marketplace moving the value out from the operators.

tried signing up but failed on creating association with Google Apps domain email. Suggestions before I retry?

Scrap that. Hadn't seen the email from Chris Beauchamp (Ops Mngr) 3 minutes prior detailing that I had obviously had a problem signing up, what the problems was and suggesting a solution. Farking outstanding proactive customer / potential customer care.

Well done HulloMail.

Right now you will get another 15 minutes of attention.

So far so good on the communication although the registration process has failed me thus far. Will update.

Quick update. After a little but very useful conversations with HulloMail all up and running just fine. Chat with Andy last night after MoMo informative and these guys will hopefully provide Spinvox with some much needed competition.

You didn't see SpinVox interview HulloMail.
You saw James Whatley of MIR interview HulloMail.

I thought that would've been clear by the 'MIR interviews Andy from Hullomail' billing we gave it.

spinvox + hullomail would = ultimate in voicemail access & managment.

I use spinvox and love it. It saves me so much time. But having voicemail as an email would be great too. Although, for me, transcription is more important atm. I would really love a merge of these two systems.

I am really sorry, but I don't see the business case here. Why do users need that? It is way simpler to press 1 (or whatever) to connect to your voicemail. When will you ever have a computer handy when you are not at home or at work or you don't own an iPhone etc? I don't think that this is a winning product… sorry.
