Your voicemail will greet calls that don’t meet that criteria, meaning that if your dentist office calls to confirm an appointment, you won’t miss out on the note entirely.

Google offers a related service on its Pixel phones, in which the Google Assistant answers the phone and holds a conversation with the caller.
