Looking at the fact that Google’s affinity for putting off all manner of apps used for communication, it’s very alarming that Voice has tried to survive and be around for over a decade now. It has transitioned through so many changes, which includes a total redesign on desktop background refreshed UI / design that has left some users unhappy because they find it implicating. After a large junk of the legacy website seized from working as far back as 2020, Google wants to push those last few users promptly to its current website by concurrently putting down the very famous platform.
For users who are still actively making use of the legacy web version of Voice to put your account together, you might likely receive an email in your inbox within the last few days that highlights precisely the changes that will take place. Google stated that, every new feature that was planned for a movement to the recent web client has finally made the move, this indicates that it’s obviously time to close down the ancient site for a good course. Voice’s legacy website propose to start a new phase out in mid-February, which will leave users with no option but to make a switch.
The Skaky Transitions For Google Voice Users
Sadly, not a lot of feature formerly available in Voice will be inculcated in this new phase. To add to this, Call Notes that was removed formerly by Google in 2020, an addition of three tools might not be available as soon as the legacy app is gone, this includes :
Do Not Disturb Timers
Carrier Call Forwarding settings
As long as carrier forwarding is involved, all calls will be automatically moved to voicemail, they will be no room for changes or any specialty. Google is also trying to imbibe the voicemail-only accounts in addition to a number and update their call forwarding choices.
Lastly, the company will not allow calling credits to be bought with non-USD currencies. Users with non-USD balance might obviously have their own wallets converted to USD this summer as soon as their balance goes as low as 0.50. Obviously, recharging in non-USD will not be allowed.
The changes might sound terrible to a lot of legacy users especially if you have relied on carrier call forwarding. Sadly, it might look that the days of old-school Google Voice have gotten to their end. If you have not already, it should be worth moving to the company’s new UI design for
Voice right before the forced transition next month.
