Does Google plan to release something where I'll be able to receive picture messages? Since everyone thinks this is my cell number, they keep sending me pics, but I don't want to tell them it's my Google voice account. Perhaps the pic could be linked to my email since it's all with google, yet still not have them aware of the situation? Does that make any sense to anyone?
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages johnyrico05 7/30/09 11:49 AM
that would be nice that if a picture or video came threw to your Google Voice that it would just forward it to your e-mail.  Yes it makes sense to me
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages swimm12984 7/30/09 10:45 PM
I agree...makes sense....For those of us who get email notifications of GV SMS, perhaps there would be an additional option (a sort of sub option) to receive email alerts (with attachments) when an MMS is received. I mean MMS is essentially an email sent over GSM (as opposed to a data connection) anyway....so yes makes senses to me.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages Blackberry_Addict 7/31/09 5:21 PM
I wouldn't think it's something that difficult. And perhaps even be able to send a Picture Message via vice versa or as how Sprint Used to do it via a URL

These are ideas of course. Maybe one day they'll become a reality.

Be sure to leave feedback @ http://spreadsheets.google.com/viewform?formkey=cDFfTmFSNS1WMzVhZldUcWxWRHoyV3c6MA..

The more people who leave feed back requesting picture messages (MMS) through google voice, the higher the priority will be.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages lghitis 7/31/09 6:40 PM
PORTABILITY!

Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages JMANTN 8/31/09 6:57 PM
I left feedback wanting the same thing!  MMS support of some kind!
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages aklinedinst 9/6/09 10:10 AM
I agree, this would be a great idea to have picture messages/mms forward to a specific email.  I left feedback.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages lovingj 9/6/09 11:45 PM
This would be an excellent feature.  Hope Google does it.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages Swansen 9/22/09 10:21 PM
to the OP, i completely agree, and feel the exact same way.. even after i explain.. people still forget and think its my cell...
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages gangadurai 10/18/09 12:50 AM
gangadurai for saudia i left feedback wanting the thing mms support of some kind
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages bostonsig 12/1/09 4:54 AM
Just added to the spreadsheet as well.  Still can't believe we're months out and still don't have MMS.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages Sylbo 12/2/09 11:59 AM
Yes, add MMS!  This is very important.  And push technology for text messages so there isn't such a long delay.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages everywherenyc 12/24/09 9:43 AM
YES!!  IT IS TIME!
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages B-Rad84 1/9/10 8:45 PM
Google, PLEASE give us pic messaging. You can do it! PLEASE! We NEED MMS now days.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages MainSequence 1/31/10 4:20 PM
Perhaps it could be tied with Picasa Albums - so we can have the pix stored for life. Abscence of this feature is the last remaining barrier preventing me from switching to Google number completely.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages RobbieRyan 2/3/10 7:01 PM
MMS is the only thing missing!
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages J6M8 2/13/10 9:06 PM
I agree! My friends keep on sending me pictures but it's the only weakness of Voice....  Help us out!

Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages groundandpound 2/23/10 9:25 AM
I am still amazed that google hasn't fixed this.  It's been many months.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages lovingj 2/23/10 5:39 PM
@groundandpound The lack of mms on Google's free sms service does not mean the service is broken and needs to be repaired. Its a feature request that most of us would like added and not a defect.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages tk.91.09 2/25/10 8:58 AM
I added to the form too, pic messaging, come on Google, we all know what u can achieve
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages Lastat 3/18/10 9:06 AM
I think it would be sweet if u can send and recieve pics or video with google voice like a lot of other people said everyone thinks that this is my cell
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages knoxie89 3/25/10 4:52 PM
Having picture messages and stuff sent to my email would be awesome!!!
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages Splatter 3/30/10 10:24 PM
MMS would really sweeten the GV deal.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages jsavage58 4/1/10 12:27 PM
please add
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages kyyo 4/14/10 9:13 AM
Ive hit a limit for text messaging. I used google voice for all sms and now all my (406) numbers have been used. all "new" text come in from one number 12709990000. this could be one of the barriers to add MMS to google voice account.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages magiccityatl 5/7/10 6:28 PM
Google voice is freakin awesome, BUT the only drawback is that there's no MMS!! Kinda hard to recommend to others when I have to tell them they won't be able to send or receive picture messages anymore! Leeet's Gooo Google! I know you can do it! Ya'll do everything! 
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages TheMisfitOne 5/23/10 4:34 PM
This would be great!  If it forwarded to either email or if I could forward it to my cell phone
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages Royal2000H 5/23/10 7:07 PM
I have to give people my other number for MMS. Definitely a pain...
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages ddsj 5/26/10 4:03 PM
Please release this feature!
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages dakenkilla 6/1/10 6:44 PM
Yes MMS would be nice then i could really use my google voice number on my cell
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages JohnRHobbs 6/24/10 7:24 PM
Yes. MMS. Need it. and txting is weird on my Verizon Droid...sometimes it comes from my phone number, sometimes from my gvoice num, but i set the gvoice as default...
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages noblow91 6/27/10 12:16 PM
We really desire MMS support. Picture messaging would be really easy. I'm thinking the only thing holding you back would be the telephone hubs that each number is going through, but then again, people have used dial-up through those same hubs. Google...many of us have abandoned our old phones in favor of this service. It would be nice to have it be a complete service...
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages joe rockle 7/15/10 8:16 PM
Google, you're awesome. Bust out some MMS for us!
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages Dr. Diversity 7/18/10 6:28 PM
This would make indentifying trees in teams so much easier in my Eagle Scout Service Project (just snap a picture of the tree and text it to my GV number)! Please add, google!
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages daniel.barnes411 8/2/10 6:27 PM
There is a service called veeker. Check it out at www.veeker.com. It lets you send picture messages as urls.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages ongfamily2 8/9/10 9:20 PM
One of the most basic features of cell phone messaging. c'mon google, what's up with that? I can't completely rely on GV until MMS is available.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages Spy9000 8/13/10 10:36 PM
yeah we definitely need this. i can't tell you how much of a pain it is =/
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages Vmanisme 8/15/10 10:46 AM
technically we're already getting enough by not having to pay for it so dont say that GV is horrible or dont put it down in any way, its a privileged, but yes i would love to get MMS messages, most likely they'll probably cost money if its even made available because of the amount of bandwidth they'll use and google doesn't have unlimited money 
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages Royal2000H 8/15/10 10:09 PM
Google Voice has seemingly unlimited storage (there's no threshold like in Gmail or Picasa).
It takes a while to accrue space with just text emails, but due to attachments, you can hit your inbox limit very quickly.

If Google's reasons for no MMS is the storage issue, then do as someone suggested, and forward it to our email! Problem solved :)

Actually, I just realized we have voicemail recordings, so that defeats my whole text-only theory of Google not giving us SMS.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages Ragdoll1974 8/22/10 11:37 AM
No MMS makes GVoice unusable for me. Bummer. I really liked it until I realized this.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages Tekhawk 8/27/10 9:06 AM
This is the only reason I have not full moved to the Google Voice number so many times I have got yelled at for not commenting on someones baby picture or does this make me look fat messages :;/
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages PlayaPozition 9/8/10 2:31 AM
WE NEED THIS FEATURE!
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages Rabbid10 9/21/10 10:46 AM
Yes.  MMS through Google Voice is a must.  I also feel that if the message was forwarded to my email box, that would be great as well.  Please implement this.

Thanks
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages krylon 10/7/10 9:06 AM
Google please bring MMS action to GV
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages fiegerph 10/8/10 7:54 AM
Count me in! Being able to get pic messages through google voice is a need. I want my family to use my GV number, but they often send pics, so right now, they can't use it. :(  Can't really fully convert to it until that is an option.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages jennifer9 10/10/10 7:07 AM
I added MMS as a suggestion here:

http://www.google.com/support/voice/bin/static.py?page=suggestions.cs

Google has not posted the suggestion yet. Suggest it again yourself in the "I have another idea" section, or when they finally post it, hit the "Suggest it" button next to it.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages timmymason 10/21/10 12:12 PM
WE WANT PICTURE MESSAGES BUILT IN FEATURE
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages jjs572003 11/16/10 7:15 AM
picture messaging already... cmon google, you can do it!
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages Cesarv 11/24/10 7:11 PM
Google please, MMS/Video messaging. Sure would like to stick it to AT&T.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages sourpuss 11/24/10 9:55 PM
Without it, GV is useless. It's true. If I can't give my GV number to everyone because i know I will someday never receive MMS communications from them, then it's a useless service in terms of incoming calls. Unfortunately, I did just get a new phone and number but gave everyone my GV number only, not realizing this MMS situation. I've already missed MMS messages. When asked, 'Did you get my message?' and have to answer "no", it makes the new smart phone  look pretty dumb. The only use for GV for me now is going to be sending SMS messages via computer with GV displaying my real, Verizon assigned number. Sorry to see no google response about this situation. Boo. 
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages ahope577 11/30/10 11:20 AM
I have just attempted to ditch my Cell # and gave out my GV # due to a "New Phone" attempting to tell people who are not tech savvy that they need to MMS me at one number and Text or phone me at another is not going to be sucessfuly so I guess for the time being I am stuck with people attempting to send me MMS floating in the ether, an email notification would be a nice first step.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages JoKeR91678 12/21/10 11:21 PM
Google...please add MMS!!!

Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages gadgetguy32 1/9/11 9:27 AM
Please figure out a way to make this happen. MMS is needed to make this a complete solution.

It is something that would bring google voice to the next level. That and maybe just linking it with google talk = )

Let me add my voice to the cacophony!
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages eupharis 1/22/11 10:13 AM
By which I mean of course, MMS would be so nice.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages unclegadget 2/7/11 2:25 PM
C'mon Google.  Get with the program...
Google Voice cannot be a one stop shop for a phone number if you cannot do basic functions like MMS

GV is totally useless for a permanent solution until this gets resolved.
How about just automatically forward to your Gmail account.

What a waste if this still does not work.  This was suggested during the beta testing of GV and years later it still is not up and running.
Free is great. Don't get me wrong but in order to do what Google wants us to do it has to be fully functional...
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages Tobin Rogers 2/8/11 7:56 AM
Agree with everyone... Please enable picture/video messaging in some shape or form.  
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages shermanxia 2/10/11 4:21 PM
It's been so long and this problem still hasn't been addressed? just direct all the MMS to email as attachments....
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages RicanRiot 2/12/11 8:32 AM
i think picture messaging is the only thing missing from making this the full package
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages Windowman.mwm 2/12/11 9:21 PM
I heard that with GV Mobile+ some were able to send and recieve mms
but most had no luck with it, can anyone confirm this and if so Google
should be able to do it with theres.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages MainSequence 2/12/11 10:16 PM
@Windowman.mwm What's GV Mobile+ ?
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages wearspjsinpublic 2/27/11 6:54 PM
This is immensely important to me as I want to switch to using my GV number completely. Please allow this! I love the idea of porting the MMS to an email address/Picasa!
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages jayyers 3/8/11 12:44 AM
One of the most basic features of cell phone messaging.  I can't completely rely on GV until MMS is available.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages GoldAnt 3/8/11 3:14 PM
I agree with everyone else in this thread, Video and Picture mail are pretty big nowadays. If google voice wants to make it, MMS and Call Quality need to be higher priorities.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages TonesTom 3/16/11 11:42 AM
Would love to see MMS..   Seems like it would "Complete the product".  I know Google can find a way to make this happen!!
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages a.saint 3/19/11 9:22 AM
Same here, need mms though GV.  Going to the spreadsheet!
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages davillinaor 3/20/11 6:49 PM
With mms support, would only need to give out one number.  Now I have to give out 2 and it confuses people.
Thanks
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages rubio469 3/21/11 8:34 AM
Yes!! Please add a MMS function or have MMS forwarded to the users gmail account.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages Belliqueu 3/24/11 5:20 PM
My Android phone wants MMS through Google Voice! I know you guys can make it happen either in the traditional way, or the email route that has been suggested here.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages Belliqueu 3/24/11 5:21 PM
Even if we just got a message saying that someone attempted to send an MMS would be nice. That way I'd at least know someone was trying to send me something
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages P1atinum_le0 3/28/11 4:21 PM
I love google voice but it really is a pain to have to send picture mail through a different avenue, sending text's from one number and picture mail to another is very confusing to recipients and i'm tired of responding to "Who is this?" messages when people have my google voice number saved and I have to send a picture through my regular cell phone number. This is the most important feature that is missing in my opinion, everything else is great.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages jimmypat1985 3/30/11 5:15 PM
Yes, agreed!  MMS support is a must for Google Voice.  I'd use it all the time!
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages Mark Satterfield 4/2/11 10:35 AM
okay, this link has been around since 2009, I'd like to see Free mms on gvoice, too.  How disappointing!

Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages eric.adamski39 4/12/11 10:56 AM
Yeah, i really think that it would help. in the last 4 days i've had 6 friends ask me what i thought of the picture they sent me and i would really like to be able to see what they are sending. my cell doesnt have picture messaging.
Please google! add MMS
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages lunarena 4/14/11 8:15 AM
doesn't even have to support MMS...just push it to the gmail account that's connected to the number so people can receive it as an email...
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages teddonyc 4/18/11 10:57 AM

Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages Ronwbrown 5/15/11 12:13 PM
With the new sprint integration, MMS messages are sent directly to your device \, using sprint texting.  they do not show up in GV, but do appear in your sprint messaging.  if you send one, use sprint texting, not the GV app.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages KJBond23 5/15/11 6:30 PM
picture message please google! 
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages mihey1985 6/18/11 10:32 PM
I really like Google and what they have done on the market last years. The ideas and the technologies are awesome. The only problems, I see for Google, are unfinished products such as Google Voice without MMS support and just thinking about it why don't they include a video calls to it too? They would kill Skype the same day they have it... Or Google Checkout, why do you have to have Google account to make purchases with it? Why on Paypal you can just make purchases with debit/credit card without signing in??? I don't understand why they don't see that it pushes people towards their competitors (that's the only reason I am still using PayPal on my website http://www.tmc-cleaning.com). Android isn't perfect and needs some interface and glitches improvements/updates as well... Another one is Google Calendar we need you to integrate it with Google Contacts more than it is now. Right now it only displays birthdays from Google Contacts, but we need a full integration where you can add contact names to the calendar events so you can see the address and other information about the contact and the event (it is really not comfortable typing it manually every time). Google you have all chances to be the best one on the market, and you are the one who blocks it... Do something before its to late...

Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages YesNow 6/22/11 8:35 PM
I receive pics via the android Messaging app.  I
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages YesNow 6/22/11 8:46 PM
I found that when a pic comes in via Messaging and you press and hold on that message there's an option to save attachment.  In the menu there is an option to attach a pic.  I mispoke by saying pics are on GV.  Sorry.  It really should be easier than this, but there you are.  Btw I'm using Nexus S 4G with all it's low signal issues.
I hope this is helpful...

Does anyone else have pix coming and going from Messaging and all the rest tjrogh Google Voice?  My first Nexus S 4g had android Messaging AND GV receiving texts but with this one it all goes through GV except pix which are sent and received using Android Messaging.

I am a sprint sales rep. I am constantly getting people into google voice, for traveling and organization. I use it for myself and both me and tons of people i have to tell no picture mail does not come through google voice would LOVE if you made this possible.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages Mansoor Ali 8/30/11 4:09 PM
I was hoping they would. Especially now that picasa does not have a limit, as long as the size constraints are met. They need to port this feature onto gv fast!
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages singingstrings 9/7/11 6:59 AM
Google. Please add Multimedia to texting ASAP. 
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages Hankquique 9/11/11 4:26 PM
If Picassa and gmail cannot work to sync MMS, maybe Google can forward the MMS to our mobile number. 
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages rainwater 9/11/11 9:36 PM
Google doesn't need Picasa or Gmail to support MMS.  I'm not sure why people bring that up.  
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages MaxiumGrimm 10/12/11 1:15 PM
I just got picture mail thru my Google Number today. I was quite surprised and happy ! Maybe they have updated their system. 
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages rainwater 10/13/11 9:35 AM
@MaxiumGrimm: Are you using Sprint integration with Google Voice?  There's no other way to receive MMS on a GV number afaik.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages TCorriher 10/14/11 7:32 PM
I got a picture to come through today also, it didn't show up in my Google Voice inbox, but I have text forwarding setup to my phone and it came through directly to the phone.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages EricLeslie 10/17/11 8:50 AM
I also was able to receive a picture sent via SMS today. It didn't show up in my GV inbox, but I have GV forward texts to my GMail, and it showed up there as an attachment.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages RedPenguin 11/30/11 5:50 PM
I definitely vote for this!@$@#$
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages rainwater 12/1/11 8:01 AM
So much for Google updating the GV apps to support MMS and adding other carriers.  It's no surprise they half implemented this on Sprint only and just left everyone hanging with no real support.  
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages pwmcnamara 12/2/11 3:47 PM
I would also like to have this feature added.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages realChris 12/9/11 9:56 AM
I can only recieve pictures from one of my friend ONLY. Why?
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages realChris 12/9/11 9:59 AM
I have my GV SMS forward texts to my regular phone # and I only can receive pictures from 1 person. Other friends trying to send me but I can't see it.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages rainwater 12/9/11 5:12 PM
@realChris: It only works if you get a MMS from a Sprint user.  You can't receive from any other carrier and can't send to any carrier.  And it requires text forwarding to work at all.

Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages Zultag 2/16/12 8:57 AM
Sounds like they are working on it. Thanks! but the sooner the better! Even just a port to email, or link to online storage would be acceptable even if it is just an interim solution.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages sbarbich 2/18/12 9:59 AM
I just received a picture mail on my google voice number and it was automatically forwarded to my email!
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages Zultag 2/19/12 4:23 PM
Boo. It didn't work for me... :)
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages john john john 2/21/12 8:26 AM
I wasn't aware this was semi-working.  I just got a txt that said "<Subject: Fwd: Fwd: Fwd: New Message>".  I asked the sender "WTF is this?" and I was told "A pic of me".  I was trying to convince the sender to send it to my email instead so I could actually see it but when I logged on to my email, the pic was already there.  So I guess it works for me.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages abyLA 2/29/12 2:00 PM

Incoming MMS/Pic msgs received instantly via email/gmail acc linked to voice#.

-          Get a confirmation of the reception of the MMS as a simple text on the voice #.

 

Outgoing MMS still diabled.

Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages local89 3/29/12 12:37 PM
Can i receive mms messages from any carrier? Is this only through Sprint? If not how can i receive them?  Can i recieve a pic message through my google number or does it have to be sent to my e mail instead?
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages SnerdlyBosco 3/29/12 12:41 PM

At present, only from Sprint subscribers

Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages tanna jones 4/15/12 12:56 PM
IT CAN!!!!    If you click the option to forward messages/missed calls to your associated google account you will get picture messages that say ( Subject: ) and whatever the persons message is- but when you check your email the message will have the picture attached. SMS from John Doe  or SMS form (212)555-5555.

Any number. And yes if you click the option to forward messages/missed calls to your associated google account you will get picture messages that say ( Subject: ) and whatever the persons message is- but when you check your email the message will have the picture attached. SMS from John Doe  or SMS form (212)555-5555.

@tana are you saying that it is fwd to our gmail email and the pic is attached there? Or does it actually get sent to the phone?

I have tried that but i never get any of the pics my wife tries to send me. Is it only certain carriers that it works for or all of them.

Papa Bear,

Google + with Messenger is NOT the solution to this problem.  Stop suggesting it please.

Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages No Boats 8/3/12 2:56 PM
Yes, please add MMS
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages txjohn69 8/4/12 9:04 AM
Yes, yes, yes....MMS picture texts PLEASE!

Nobody even sends emails anymore...everyone MMS now.  DAILY I have people try to send me pictures or ask me to send a picture via text.  I use Google Voice as my "mobile" number so everything I receive comes through it.  I would even consider paying a small premium for the service.  I pay $5/year for 20GB storage on Google Docs...I'd pay a small fee to receive/send pics (though FREE would be lovely ;)

If you are using GO Launcher EX app on an Android, install the free GO SMS Pro by GO dev Team app in Google Play.

In sync with Google Voice SMS and allows you to send/receive MMS pictures, videos and audio.

Pictures from Google Drive or Google + cannot be uploaded at this time, only files from My Files or My Gallery in Android.
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages Issa8 8/6/12 11:08 AM
Hey Papa Bear.. how do you do this? Do you have to use GO Launcher EX?
Re: Google Voice and Picture Messages stealthmouse 8/16/12 7:43 PM
What would someone use that's comparable to GO SMS Pro on iOS?  Also, I use Apex Launcher on a custom ROM on my Spyder, so I'm not going to use GO SMS Pro as the default launcher.  Does that solution still work, as asked by the other person who replied? And lastly, it seems a bit silly that Handcent can use email system to send MMS, but Google Voice can't, when Google owns gmail.
