Project Description

📖 < 1 min read
Admins can now assign Google Voice numbers to users while a port is still in progress, and users can start using their assigned numbers immediately once porting is completed. Previously, admins had to wait to assign the numbers until after the port completed, and only then could the user activate the application.
This reduces downtime for users, allowing them to start making calls more quickly and ensuring they don’t miss incoming calls once the port is complete.
Numbers can also be assigned to auto attendants and ring groups ahead of time allowing a seamless transition once the port is complete.

Getting started

Admins: This feature will be ON by default. During number porting, Google will inform admins that numbers are available for immediate assignment. Visit the Help Center to learn more about porting business numbers to Voice.
End users: There is no end user setting for this feature. Users will automatically get welcome info once the port completes.
