Google Voice: (Video) How to Find Legacy Version on Desktop (Old Version, Previous Version)

If you can’t get used to the latest experience in Google Voice, you can go back to the legacy version.

In a previous (and popular video), I showed how to block anonymous  (UNKNOWN) callers on Google Voice. When the site was updated, I didn’t see a way to do this in Settings. The video below shows you how to get back to the legacy version of Google Voice on your desktop.

At this writing, the new version eventually comes back so you’ll have to do a repeat.

I Like to Download Some of My Voicemails – Google Voice

I use Google Voice for my main phone number. One of the features I like, but don’t use that often, is the ability to download voicemail messages to my computer. Those messages are also saved to Dropbox.

UPDATE: Google changed Voice’s interface. You’ll need to get back to its legacy version first, then follow these instructions. I’ve recorded a quick YouTube video on how to do that.

Here’s a graphic that shows how simple this is. When you go to Google Voice, click to display Voicemails. Then, next to the one you want to download, click the more drop-down option, Download, save the message as you normally would any file.

That’s it.

How to Block UNKNOWN (or Anonymous) Callers in Google Voice (with video)

I was inundated with junk calls that read UNKNOWN in the Caller ID with calls coming into Google Voice. That was driving me nuts. Three, four, eight times a day those calls would come in, and I’d just ignore them.

Fortunately, my Google Voice number is the one that I publicize. I’d tried the Block function for the caller, but it didn’t work at all.

Here’s what did. Here’s what did. I went into Google Settings and changed the option for anonymous callers. When the anonymous call comes in, Google Voice has no phone numbers to forward the calls to.

PEACE.
