The two interesting new features that are coming to Google Voice, and one of them will prevent you from receiving spam messages on your device.
While Google Voice has received very few updates this year, basically changing the design and little else, it is now launching a feature that is ideal for avoiding that annoying spam.
Similar to when we received a warning about suspicious spam calls, now Google Voice It will do basically the same thing, but offering this protection or warnings in SMS messages.
It is a phased update that will gradually reach all Google Voice users, and that basically has a particular way of working with two options that you can press.
When spam is detected, a red exclamation mark will appear in the profile avatar area, while the message preview will begin with the phrase “suspected spam.”
After this warning notice, the user has two options:
- On the one hand, the user can confirm that this message is really spam, which causes future messages from this number to go directly to the spam folder or be blocked.
- But on the other hand, the user can also mark said message as “not spam”, so that the system no longer marks it as spam the next time.
This protection against spam text messages will reach both free accounts and paid levels of Google Voice.
There’s also been a small update that goes directly to contact cards in Google WorkSpace products and basically adds birthday decorations.
These birthday animations will only appear as long as a date of birth has been previously added to a Google Account profile and this information has been configured to be visible to everyone.
