Not all group text members are receiving texts 0 Recommended Answers 5 Replies 4 Upvotes

I have a Google Voice group chat where all the other members don't use Google Voice. Direct texts can be sent and received, but when I sent a group text this morning, one member could not receive texts, but the rest of the members could (I can send direct texts to this member, and they are received). Before today, everything worked as expected. What is causing this issue?

Define “bulk”, that post said there are limits for spam prevention but I’ve seen this problem in a text with 8 people.

@Matt Muller  Google Voice's text messaging feature is intended solely for one-to-one, personal conversations.

No offense but that is blatantly untrue - it clearly lets me create mms conversations with multiple people.

@Matt Muller  Yes, you can send to multiple people, but the intent is not to send out the same type of message to multiple people, in bulk form. 
 
If you cannot send SMS to anyone then you should wait 24 hours with no SMS activity. To prevent abuse, there are limits to the number (and type) of text messages you can send from Google Voice.  
 
These limits are not published.
 
After 24 hours, if the issue persists, from a computer, not mobile device, please open Chrome incognito [Cmd/Ctrl+Shift+N], or Firefox private browser [Cmd/Ctrl+Shift+P] mode. 
  1. Then open Google Voice (https://voice.google.com/) log into your Google Voice account that's having issues.
  2. What do you see?
 
Please make sure you are posting all future replies from the Google account with the issue.
