Launched under the brand name “MyVoice”, the new Telekom Malaysia service permits fixed line users to record and send short voice messages to any phone user, fixed or mobile.

Background music, sound effects and other greetings can be added. The receiver can also reply to the message by pressing the "#" button on their phone.

The system has been developed by TM Applied Business (TAB) of Kuala Lumpur combined with TelcoBridges' TB640 System-Blade™, IVR and StreamServer™ technologies with TAB’s Virtual Communication Services (VCS) application solution.
