Verizon now supports Google Voice MMS


Recently, Google announced that it had partnered with nearly 100 North American carriers to enable sending MMS to Google Voice numbers. It used to be thatMMS messages sent to Google Voice numbers would disappear without even a warning that they were not received. Thankfully, this issue was fixed by Google with the cooperation of many carriers.

Of course, Verizon decided not to play nice and was not included in this list of supported carriers and it seemed as though Google even made a subtle jab at Verizon the day of the announcement (a well deserved one, of course). The good news is that people are now reporting that MMS from Verizon to Google Voice numbers now go through as they should.

Verizon hasn’t announced any changes, so we don’t know what caused this. Whether Verizon had a change of heart, or Google figured out some workaround, it’s great news for users of Google Voice and everyone in contact with them. Have you noticed Verizon MMS coming in? Leave a comment!

    It’s still not working for me. I just sent a picture to my sister on Verizon, and she got a link to the pic, not the actual pic.

      Then it’s working. That’s more than has ever happened with GV MMS on Verizon.

      It’s the other way around. The support is for Verizon members to send MMS to Google Voice numbers. Previously, they wouldn’t come at all. Now they should come as normal. The way you’re describing, GVoice to a carrier, is still the same.

    I’ll definitely have to try to see if they’ve got it worked out;. I’ve got a lot of friends on Verizon, and having to tell them that I won’t get their MMS is starting to get old…

    Still doesn’t work. Send MMS from VZW to GV, I get a message that says “MMS Received”. Not a link. I checked both the mobile and desktop version of Google Voice. It’s just plain text.

      I get the same thing…
