Secretary reads you the number of missed calls, unread messages ( including their content ) and calendar notifications when you connect your BT headset/car kit or wired headphones. In addition to that, it will read you all new messages received, either over the headset or over the phone speaker. No more fishing for your phone while driving to read an incoming message or to check if you missed some notifications while you were outside.


Both SMS and iMessages are supported. Secretary can speak in all Text-to-Speech ( TTS ) languages supported on iOS. You can adjust the volume and the speaking rate to best fit your needs. SBSettings toggle is included as well.

An example English version of the message when you connect your headset: “You have some notifications. Missed calls: three, unread messages: one, calendar events: two. Message from is: …”. Mute switch and Do Not Disturb mode are taken into account for message reading over the speaker.

  • Configure the volume level of your Secretary announcements
  • Choose to hear, or not hear, announcements for amount of missed calls
