You have the ability to configure a custom voicemail for your Avochato number. Go to Settings > Recordings & Voicemail. A custom voicemail can be added by uploading a pre-recorded audio file.
The file must be in .mp3 or .wav format. Use an online converter tool if your existing audio file is not .wav or .mp3.
Click on “Custom” > “Upload a custom voicemail” > find file to upload or use the default recording.
