Google Ending Voicemail Transcripts via Text Message

Updated: Jul 26, 2021

Google looks to be ending Google Voice's ability to send voicemail transcripts to your phone's messaging app. The reason behind doing so seems to be that carriers were blocking the messages because they were automated as well as containing transcripts from robocalls at times. Users can still retrieve voicemails via email if needed. The changes are set to take place on August 9th, 2019.

Below is the message sent out by Google Voice's team:

Google Voice Transcript feature service ending
Google is to remove the transcript via message feature beginning August 9th, 2019
