AnsweringMachine XS is a high-quality jailbreak tweak developed by Limneos, the same developer behind the popular AudioRecorder XS. With a proven track record of delivering innovative and reliable tweaks, Limneos has established a reputation for excellence.

You can trust that AnsweringMachine XS will meet the same high standards and provide a top-notch experience for managing your voicemail messages. Let's look into some features.

With AnsweringMachine XS, the Voice Recognition feature provides a real-time text version of your recorded voicemails. This feature supports all available dictation languages on iOS, giving you the flexibility to choose the language that works best for you. Now you can easily read the content of your voicemail messages without having to listen to the recording.

Customize the greeting your callers receive when they reach your voicemail. You can record your own greeting or select to use the system's voice, such as Siri, to dynamically greet your callers by name. This feature automatically detects the caller's name from your contacts and speaks the text that you specify. Also, Telephony and FaceTime Audio calls are handled.

AnsweringMachine XS offers powerful DTMF (Touch-Tone) Commands that let you manage your voicemail messages and perform actions on your phone remotely. With DTMF Commands, you can call your phone from another number and listen to your messages, mark them as heard, or delete them. In addition, AnsweringMachine XS also includes advanced DTMF Commands that allow you to perform even more actions on your phone remotely.

On top of this, with AnsweringMachine XS, you can take advantage of the Call-Screening feature to listen to what the remote party is saying while they're leaving you a voicemail, without actually answering the call. You have the option to pick up the call if you want to talk to the person while they're leaving the voicemail, or you can let them continue leaving the voicemail.
