I've been using Google Voice texting and phone app for years without any issues. Sometime after the last Verizon update (3 days ago), I started experiencing these incoming text delays. After speaking to Verizon support and doing a few uninstalls and reinstalls, the tech concluded it was a Google Voice issue, not Verizon's. Outgoing text messages work totally fine, but incoming text are delayed in showing up for 30 minutes to hours later. This is happening on Android phone as well as PC desktop version of Google Voice.  Also, forwarding text to my email either doesn't work at all or is equally delayed. I briefly activated that feature and got no emails. Any suggestions/fixes/workarounds would be greatly appreciated.

I have been experiencing delayed email forwarding of voice messages -- happens with my Voice account intermittently.  Some days messages arrive very quickly.  Other days messages arrive in my email inbox many hours after the phone caller recorded his/her message.  VERY IRRITATING.  Have not figured out why it happens or how to fix the issue.  [This happens for me with voicemail audio transcription that is forwarded to my email.  I almost never receive texts so don't know if they are delayed.]
