Description from store October 2 2013: New Release! Version 1.8.2 *UPDATE* Latest release attempts to fix reported issues of player not appearing. Please verify if this works for you! This extension will insert an html <audio> tag if the email contains a .wav file attachment so that you can play the message inline, without having to download it. This extension works great if you get your voicemail messages emailed to you in WAV format. *NOTE* GSM encoded WAV files are not supported by Google Chrome browser. If you are seeing the audio player, but it is "grayed" out or has a time of 0:00, then you are most likely running into this issue. Works with: Chromium 11.0.676.0 (75353) Ubuntu 10.04 Chrome 9.0.597.98 Windows XP Chrome 11.0.672.2 dev Mac OS X Gmail is a trademark of Google Inc.

    התקנתי את התוסף ולא עובד...
  • (2019-09-04, v:1.8.2) Brad Logan: Simply Does Not Work
    My voicemails come as .wav. I downloaded this extension with hopes of not having to download every single voicemail just to listen to it. The . wav player button is on my Chrome bar, but I still have to download any .wav to listen. Am I missing a step? Nothing I've tried makes this work. Any help to make this work?

  • (2018-01-24, v:1.8.2) Voice mail file problem
    Error message: "There was a problem playing this audio file". The file is encoded with Microsoft GSM Audio (agsm). The file has to be downloaded to play. When it is done, the file is properly played back with VLC player.
  • (2017-11-27, v:1.8.2) Scott McDonald: Doesn't work
    I'm guessing it's because it hasn't been updated in years. It does not work at all with the current version of Chrome.
