Haven't they also been trying to unbundle SMS/MMS and Hangouts for a year or two now as well? I mean, it was frustrating getting those two to work in concert but I wanted it to function in the end. I'd just like to know if all their posturing with regards to messaging is "Change for the sake of Change" or if it's really going to be useful. It'd be nice to know what the end of their road map is or if they're playing Sonic The Hedgehog and are stuck in the Casino Night Zone.
Is Jibe still a thing?? I sorta gave up on Google phones when the prices hit premium level so I'm not into all the google stuff anymore.
At any rate, I've had Voice installed for the last seven years or so and while I'm okay with Hangouts handling my VM and whatnot I do use Voice for some stuff because Hangouts is often buggy on the S5 provided by my workplace.
