Google just announced on their Voice Blog that Sprint subscribers who use Google Voice can now use MMS, a highly requested feature among users. The multi-media messages will appear on Sprint user’s mobile phones and will be forwarded to their email if they request it. Google is also working on displaying these images inside of the Voice website.
Today, we’re happy to announce that we’ve made the first step in our efforts to bring this feature to our users. Google Voice users are now able to receive pictures and other multimedia messages from Sprint subscribers. The multimedia attachments will display on their mobile forwarding phone and in their email inbox when they enable text to email forwarding in their Google Voice settings. We are also planning on making them display in the Google Voice inbox.
Google says they aren’t going to stop at Sprint, however, and are working towards adding new carriers to the mix as they become availble. Sprint users, enjoy!
