Mixing Google Fi and Google Voice is a Bit of a Mess

Apparently trying to mix Google Fi and Google Voice is a bit of a mess. “The problem is that Fi is essentially sharing infrastructure with the soon-to-be-unceremoniously-destroyed-in-a-spring-cleaning product known as Google Voice. Google has been slowly but surely deprecating Voice by moving most of its features into Hangouts (and, at the same time, slowly but surely extricating Hangouts from Google Plus). It’s not a history that inspires confidence. (Google Voice might itself need a short explainer: it was designed to give you one phone number that could work on multiple phones and transcribe voicemail for all of them.)”
