Until now, sending a text message to multiple recipients required copying and pasting the message for each recipient.
To make this a bit easier, we just launched the ability to send a single SMS message to multiple recipients. Just click on the SMS button at the top of your Google Voice inbox, enter names or numbers (separated by commas) in the "To" field, write your message and click send.
Replies from each recipient will be threaded into separate conversations, so you can keep track of them in your Google Voice inbox. To prevent spam, we've set a maximum of five recipients per message.
This feature is also available from the Chrome extension and we'll also be adding it to the Google Voice mobile app soon.
We hope you like this new feature, and as always, welcome your feedback.
