Topic Wiki

Google Voice may save a number as a home number, and in that mode it will not allow you to forward messages. In order to change that there's an option in legacy site.

Has anyone in the past send pictures through Hangouts?

  I always loved this method of sending pictures through hangouts as I was able to send unlimited amount of pictures at one shot, but what I did realize each time I would send someone pictures they would always complain its blurry.
  Never did I send it to my own phone which I should have tried, but being that I did send it now I realize that it is blurry.
 Curious if there's a way to sharpen the picture on Hangouts, meaning that Hangouts doesn't reduce the pixels on the picture when its sent.

 I wonder if Hangouts to Hangouts will retain its sharpness or that will also blur the pictures?

Is there a way to forward a GV text message (I use GV app) or group message from the app?

Not that I see other than selecting each individual message and copying it

Wow really surprised to see that they're is 917/347 # to choose from when adding a new line.
Now i see 718
 But they didn't always require this which seems to be a new thing.
"To complete setup and start using Google Voice, you need to verify your existing phone number"

New as well, haven't seen this before with a linked number and a gv number, you were able to make calls when you didn't have a number as it went as anonymous.
"Anonymous caller ID
Hide your caller ID on outgoing calls"

Trying to set up a new GV num with a second email of mine. I keep getting an error message. I’m guessing it’s because the phone number connected to my email address is the same number attached to a different email address of mine with GV already. I have to have a new number connected to that email to setup an acct? I seem to remember during the Fi promo ppl say they have a bunch of GV num , how did they do that?
Set up account number one with a valid phone number and then once you get a gv number go to the settings and click un-link the attached number, now it will allow you to use that number and get a 2nd gv number if you don't care to have a linked number.
   But as long as your number is linked to another account you wont be able to use it to set up an another account.

 Just tried that here and now have a new gv number and that verified number(a real number not attached to gv) i used to create a new account, i de-linked it from my gv account after i got myslef a gv number, so im free to create another gv number with that phone number.

Yes needed Hangouts, if it works on its own without needing three apps that's pretty cool.
