Google Voice team member, Alex Wiesen, took to Google+ this afternoon to announce that they have expanded MMS support to nearly 100 North American carriers as of today, a group that includes Sprint, T-Mobile, and AT&T. If you use Google Voice on a regular basis, you know how big of a deal this is, as you have likely missed out on picture messages from friends at some point. As Wiesen points out, with this new carrier support, you can say “goodbye to FOMO (fear of missing out).”
Well, most of you can. Wiesen didn’t offer up a full list of those 100 carriers for us to browse through, but since he specifically noted that AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint are involved, that leads us to believe that Verizon is not. He also ran a “P.S.” at the end of his announcement that seemed like a subtle ribbing of Verizon for not participating, saying “p.s. If you’re a carrier, and you want to enable MMS support for Google Voice, please let us know. We’re big fans of text messaging interoperability.”
Go send some MMS messages and let us know how it goes!
