Google Voice remains a pretty useful service if you want your voice mails turned into text messages. However, it’s ability to do so accurately is a little hit and miss. Indeed, there are numerous websites that contain hilarious Google Voice transcriptions, often on Tumblr blogs. Plus, Google Voice is only available in the US.
Google Voice is one of those Google apps that seems to be ignored by Google, and I often wondered if it might suffer the same fate as Google Reader. With the news that Google is readying a new unified messaging service called Google Babel, I became hopeful that Google Voice would be included and might not be doomed after all.
I am usually "late to the party", so I wasn't surprised to learn just today that Google announced the end of Google Voice back in October. OK, it's not really the end of Google Voice; it's just the end of Google's allowing 3rd party apps like Talk-a-tone to join with Google Voice to give us free calling and texting across the United States and Canada.
I had been using Google Voice but decided I'd like to try the updated standard Sprint Voice Mail again.
How do I change the settings so I receive messages on my phone thru the Sprint voice mail?
I have uninstalled Google Voice; however, when I call in I still hear my old Google greeting so obviously any message is being left in the Google Voice program.
