Google voice message forwarding service ending soon

Google voice message forwarding is going away starting August 1. Who is using the forwarding messages and what are your plans now?

At this point I’m trying to just leave the watch on 3g preferred to save battery. A couple issues there are some if the towns I go to don’t have 3g. Only 4g and 5g :thinking: so won’t know I don’t have service till I check.
If I leave it on 3g and try to download a picture instead of just a text. That seems to kill the battery worse then if it was on 4g. So it’s best to switch back to 4g before downloading the picture or video message.
None of this was as convenient is using forwarded messages. No you didn’t get the picture id in the notification or have the entire conversation list. But it worked with mobile data off
