So strange. When I first had to select my number I was able to adjust the amount of rings. I would dial my # then press another that meant the amount of rings I wanted then press another number to confirm.. I just haven't been able to remember what I did βž– I guess that's no longer available either, oh well. Understood. Thank you so much for making the time to reply/helpπŸ™πŸ»

Google Voice has never, ever had an option to set the number of rings before answering calls.  It has always been fixed at approximately 25 seconds (plus a variable few more seconds of telephone network delay).

I used to be able to adjust the rings to shorter or longer before going to voicemail. I can't find that option either anymore.

Google Voice isn't a cassette tape answering machine.  Google is not going to change the ring period.  And, Google does not accept feature requests from this forum.
