Smith Micro Announces Premium Visual Voicemail Inclusion in Boost Mobile’s ‘Privacy Premium’ Offering
PITTSBURGH, PA, March 24, 2021 – Today, Smith Micro Software (NASDAQ: SMSI) (“Smith Micro”) announced that Boost Mobile has included its Premium Visual Voicemail (PVVM) value-added service in a new ‘Privacy Premium’ offering that provides Boost Mobile customers with full digital protection. Powered by Smith Micro’s CommSuite® voice messaging platform, PVVM streamlines voicemail management for Boost Mobile customers with secure voice-to-text transcription and the ability to forward transcribed voicemails to email.
“Safeguarding digital privacy while providing smartphone users with easy-to-use mobile solutions that streamline daily life is core to Smith Micro’s mission,” said William W. Smith, Jr., President and CEO of Smith Micro. “Screening calls from unknown numbers has become commonplace in our age of robo calls and phone scams.”
