Google Voice users can now get MMS from Sprint
Google on Friday said it had begun the first steps to bring MMS capability to its Google Voice service. Sprint subscribers can now send pictures and videos to Google Voice users. Multimedia attachments will display on the cellphone that forwards the content as well as in their e-mail inboxes and their e-mail inbox once they enable text to e-mail forwarding in Google Voice settings.
Eventually, Google said, these messages should display in the Google Voice inbox. The company added it's currently working with other providers to allow MMS receiving on all mobile phones. Adding MMS functionality is one of the most commonly requested additions to the Google Voice service.
