I have an iPhone XR running iOS 14.6 and am very frustrated trying to listen to Voice Mail messages. I'm hoping someone has some useful suggestions.
The biggest problem is that when I activate a voice mail mesasge it begins to play, but so quietly that I can't hear the mesage. I try and flick around for the "Speaker" button but can barely hear the feedback from VoiceOver.
Once I get the message to shut up so that I can hear what Voiceover is saying, I don't even see a "Speaker" button in the dialog.
There is a "Play Destination" button, but activating this does nothing.
Why is this so difficult? Why can't the messages app work like answering a phone call, i.e., if I take the phone away from my ear it automatically switches to speaker mode?
The other alternative would be to have a clearly labeled and easy to find "Speaker" button that can be activated *BEFORE* the message starts playback.
Also, when I take the phone away from my ear with a mesage playing I expect Voiceover to be heard at normal volume, not the quiet volume that is used when playing back the voice message.
Anyway, maybe I'm doing something wrong or missing something here, but if anyone else has some suggestion as to how to get this to work a bit better that would be great.
