Not sure whether this has been covered, but, my Google Voice plugin no longer logs into my account. I have even updated my password, knowing that works on the google site. Here is the message I get:

Enabling plugin "Google Voice SMS 1.2.0"
Starting plugin "Google Voice SMS 1.2.0" (pid 11622)
Started plugin "Google Voice SMS 1.2.0"
Google Voice SMS Logging in to your Google Voice account.
Google Voice SMS Unable to login. Please verify your e-mail/password in the plugin preferences
Google Voice SMS Error plugin runConcurrentThread function returned or failed (will attempt again in 10 seconds)

Any ideas how to fix? My email and password have been verified.


The Google Voice SMS Plugin has been dying in stages for months now. Every time Google tweaks the website (HTML or Javascript), the plugin is at risk. If SMS is really needed for your Indigo setup, I recommend you get away from GV. Twilio works great, and while not free, is pretty inexpensive.

Re: Google Voice SMS Plugin

For what it's worth I gave up on GV and am using the great Twilio plugin. So far it has performed flawlessly. I have a lot of messages I send and so the service is a bit pricy, about $6 per month. Looking how to drop some redundancy. I recommend Twilio.

Re: Google Voice SMS Plugin

I gave up as well and use pushover for all of my plugins. Minor one time fee and I restructured everything so when it comes time for indigo to have native notifications it is a trivial changeover. SMS control was nice but I now use home remote for the shortcutty types of things.
