Text message to email
In addition to receiving text messages sent to your Google number on your mobile device and in your Google Voice inbox, you can also have text messages sent to your Google number delivered to your email address. By enabling Google Voice text messaging to email, you'll be able to keep, search, and organize your text messages along with your email messages.
If you enable Google Voice text messaging to email, text messages sent to your Google number will be delivered to the email address associated with your Google Account. If you reply to the text email message, your reply will be sent as a text message to the original sender.
To enable sending Google Voice Text Messaging to the email address associated with your Google Account, follow these steps:
- Click the gear icon at the top of the page, click Settings, and select the Voicemail & Text tab.
- Check the box next to 'Forward text messages to my email:' in the 'Text Forwarding' section.
- Click Save Changes.
Note: You can only reply to text messages from the email address it was originally sent to. If you're forwarding messages from the email address associated with your Google Account to another email address and try to reply to the text message from the other address, your text message won't be delivered.
