OK, I've got a 3-part question regarding the 1xx devices.
1. Assuming for now that GVGW will not be of much help for the new system, does that mean that the 1xx devices are no longer compatible with "native" Google Voice? (and no valid hacks?)
2. If #1 is true, does this mean we should go dig up those 2014 threads when XMPP was scheduled to be retired? I.E., is this the same situation? Would all(most) of the same workarounds apply?
3. Is there currently a convenient way to use a smartphone to initiate a GV outgoing call the "old" way? For example, I have never tried the GV android app, but can a call be requested on the app to ring your assigned phone device? As opposed to using a standard pc/browser to access GV.
