    I have a Moto G5 Plus. I am on Verizon Wireless but I didn't buy the phone through Verizon.

    Whenever I get a voicemail, I don't get notified until a couple seconds after I open the stock Android 8.1.0 phone app and click on the voicemail tab. I spoke with Verizon about this issue and they tried to help but basically gave up at the end because I didn't get the phone through them.

    Any thoughts on how to fix this?

    Contact your carrier

    They already tried that.

    Does this require a Verizon-specific app? I only buy non-carrier phones and have never seen a visual voicemail app

    Everyone: Thanks for the replies!

    @Hadron : Verizon has such an app but it doesn't work with Android 8.1. :-(

    @mikedt : I looked at that app but it doesn't mention anything about voicemail.

    I guess I will just have to go with a thirty party solution.

    Why not contact Verizon and ask if they even offer a visual voice mail?
    And if you have already, and got nowhere with them, then ultimately it's something that they do not offer. A 3rd party app will probably get you nowhere.
