- Call (415) 798-2175 and leave a voicemail.
- IFTTT converts your message to an MP3, and sends a link to it to the Drafts list in the Reminders app.
- When you open Drafts, the MP3 URL will import into a new draft.
To make this work, you have to (1) set up Drafts to work with Reminders; and (2) create a Drafts list in Reminders.
How I Use This Recipe
Sometimes I just want to dictate a note to myself, but don’t want to open an app, click on the microphone icon and dictate a note. (Or tell Siri to create a reminder or a note.) Now I can just call a number, leave a message and hang up, and listen to the MP3 at my leisure from Drafts.
Change This Recipe
In the IFTTT app, you can also add the transcribed message to the Reminders app. I have not found IFTTT’s speech-to-text algorithm to be terribly good. Also, I have found that long voicemails just don’t import into Reminders at all. However, if you just want to add short tasks, you might want to use this alternative.
