At long last, Google Voice MMS works on all major North American carriers. Verizon was the last of the big boys to hold things up, but that changes today. You can now send pictures in a Google Voice MMS to your friends on Big Red and they will actually see them.
MMS has long since been superseded by all-data services including Hangouts, Snapchat, and good old-fashioned email. Still, there are some people who are down with MMS. At least they can be happy now.
At the same time, Google is rolling out support for native Google Voice MMS in the Hangouts app. Previously, you'd just get a link to open and view the picture, but now it will be shown in-line. Of course, you need to enable the Voice/Hangouts integration to do this.
