"Please try again." error when trying to send a txt using Google Voice Chrome Extension 1 Recommended Answer 120 Replies 167 Upvotes

I am not able to send SMS txt messages from the Google Voice chrome extension.  No configuration changes, just get the error "Please try again".  I can send SMS via the Google Voice web page itself, but the chome extension is super helpful.  I tried clearing the data and reloading the extension, but get the same results.

Have to reply to this thread, as although this is marked as a duplicate, the referenced thread   (https://support.google.com/voice/thread/10899307?hl=en)  is locked.
Google - Any plans to add a new Voice extension if the current one is deprecated and no longer allows SMS?  Basically, no way to get notification of new SMS unless you keep a voice tab open.  Extension  is very useful.
Google Voice   new web  experience is great, but requires to be kept open to get new voice or SMS notification.  
Extension is still needed.
Also - advance notice of deprecation of features is appreciated.

Nope.  You'll have to simply keep a browser tab open to the Google Voice website, and turn on desktop notifications in your browser's settings for that website.  Or, use the Google Voice mobile app on a smartphone, and it will notify you.

What? You killed the extension? seriously? I could instantly see when I had a message or call without constantly being harassed by pings and dings and rings from the goddamn cell phone. The Chrome extension was BY FAR the best feature of Google Voice from my point of view. And WTF google? Why are you telling us to try again later if you've trashed the extension's capacity to send messages?

I guess I'll just port the number to another service.

This is absolutely stupid.  Fine, you updated things.  But you cannot take away arguably one of the most useful features of Google Voice.  Will I make due, yes, but all it does is DOUBLE my level of effort to send a text.

I wonder if there's any sort of API available for extension developers to make their own gVoice extension? I used to love the extension because it meant I didn't need to have a separate window open and switch over to it constantly. I'd be more than happy to build and maintain an extension mimicking the old capabilities if it's possible.
