    You get transcription in hangouts & can play right there. They're trying to do away with gv as a separate service, but they don't seem to know where to put it's features.

    The gv app hasn't changed much & likely won't, moving forward. In the gv app, it flat out tells you that SMS for your gv number is handled in hangouts.

    So, sign up for gv, then use hangouts for voicemail?

    Yup.
    Basically, what you'll do is forward all of your calls through gv.

    To do so, you have to dial each of the following.

    Each of those are for different situations, no answer, busy, etc.

    You should then automatically get voicemails in hangouts, which will look something like this:

    No problem. To turn off the forwarding, I THINK you just call those numbers again, but I forget. I thought the article that I got them from said how, but it doesn't anymore if it did.
