Use the new GV interface w/ Google Fi? (or Manage Outgoing VM files some other way) 0 Recommended Answers 2 Replies 1 Upvote

Hi All,
I'm hoping one of you can help me. I'm a voice actor and need to have professional audio as my OGM for voicemail. I used to be able to use the Google Voice interface to upload new audio files to my service, and to manage them. Now, when I go into the GV interface (using the GV link at the bottom of the Google Fi page, it says:

    Voicemail Greeting To manage your voicemail greetings, use the new Google Voice

this link just keeps redirecting me back to the Google Fi page, where I can keep looping, but can't get a new file uploaded into the system. I know there's a method using temp storage but that requires a rooted phone. Mine isn't rooted.

Anyone here know how to get to the "new Google Voice" so I can properly manage my OGMs? I also used to be able to do it through "Groups" in GV settings... but that's just letting me pick stale ones now saying:

     This is the voicemail greeting callers hear
     To manage your voicemail greetings, use the new Google Voice

It's really starting to annoy me and I don't want to root, so before I get too frustrated I thought I'd come in here and ask the experts. Anyone have any non-root ideas to get my audio files in as my OGM? Or a URL command that will stop the new Google Voice portal from looping me back to Fi?

Thanks for any help you can give!

Welcome to the forum.
The only way to record a new greeting now is through the mobile app. that doesn't give any interface to merge a recorded message through your mobile soundcard.
Requests for new features and suggestions can be submitted through feedback.
Open the app and go to the support page to find the link to submit feedback.
That's the best way to bring your wishes to the attention of the developers.

That was the "official" response before, but there were several other ways.  There still is another way, it just requires root, which I don't want to use.

I'm looking for someone to get creative.  If no one can, I just have to leave the service.  I'm a voice actor, my voicemail OGM can't sound like crap when I get paid to record other people's voicemails.
