Per the message in my tenant.. Skype for Business Online Voicemail Transcription is a new Office 365 feature. This feature will be released to all customers on March 31, 2017 (MC97355).

 

Voicemail Transcription will be enabled by default for all customers. Once it is released, users will receive a transcription of their voicemails in the email body. You can disable this feature at any time from your configuration.

 

Will this use the same public Bing translation services that are used in Meeting Broadcasts too, or is this a different technology?

Hey Neeraj,

 

I believe it's the same Azure technology doing the transcription. It would be logical to be.

 

They just released a post on this feature:

Hi Tom. For some reason MS has 2 versions of this service. One used in the Azure Media services (supports O365 Video), and the other coming from Bing (supports Broadcast). Looks like this is using the Azure one. Was just curious :)
