Google Voice MMS support on almost 100 carriers rolls out

Google has been busy making a lot of changes with Google Voice and Hangouts, including most notably further integration between the two services into one handy single app. In an effort to expand the service’s usefulness for users, the Internet giant has announced that following busy work with almost 100 carriers across the United States and Canada, it has made available support for MMS messages in Google Voice from a large roster of carriers, among them being such notable entities as T-Mobile, AT&T, and Rogers.

The announcement was made today by Google Voice’s Alex Wiesen, who detailed the move on his Google+ account. According to Wiesen, Google has been working alongside dozens of carriers across both Canada and the United States to integrate Google Voice MMS support.

The collective batches of integrations all went live today, bringing support for T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint, Bell Canada, Telus, Rogers, and nearly 100 other wireless carriers. A full list hasn’t been detailed at this point, but Google is encouraging other carriers to get on board.

This is a welcomed change, making sure those who utilized Google’s Voice service will be able to receive MMS messages from others — a pretty basic staple of modern communication. Wiesen promises that more messaging improvements are in the pipeline, but until then, hit up the timeline below for more news.
