Does OBi still work with Google Voice?
“End of support” means Poly/OBi won’t be making firmware updates after 2023. Our OBi devices will continue to work with Google Voice until Google makes a radical change that requires a firmware update from Poly.
Google Voice is a powerful communication platform that operates across multiple devices and networks. It allows users to make phone calls, send text messages and voicemails to any phone number in the world. It also provides integrated voicemail and call management tools, including call forwarding and automated voicemail transcription.
Unfortunately, users of the popular VoIP service Obihai have recently reported that Google Voice is no longer working with the device. This has caused a great deal of confusion and frustration for those affected. So, if you are one of them, this article will provide information on why Obihai Google Voice stopped functioning and possible ways to fix it.
Why Google Voice Stopped Working on Obihai?
The cause behind Obihai Google Voice outage appears to be due to a change in the underlying technology being used. Google is changing the way its Voice service interacts with SIP-enabled VoIP devices like the Obihai Obi200. This shift in technology is causing the service to be unable to recognize the Obi200, leading to it being unable to make or receive calls.
What Can You Do to Fix the Problem?
Fortunately, there are a few steps you can take to try and get your Obihai Google Voice working again:
- Update the Firmware: Obihai has released an update to its firmware which is designed to address the issues with Google Voice. To install this update, you must have an active internet connection and have access to the Obihai devices web interface. Once you have accessed the web interface, you can update the firmware.
- Re-register Your Device: If the firmware update does not resolve the problem, you can try re-registering your Obihai device with Google Voice. To do this, first open the Google Voice app on your mobile device, select devices and find your Obi200 device in the list. From here, select “remove device” and then re-register it with Google Voice.
- Contact Obihai Support: If you have tried the above two methods and are still experiencing issues with Obihai Google Voice, then you should contact Obihai’s customer support team. They should be able to help provide you with more information and provide solutions.
