The OBi300-302 will be the new ATA's for GV!

For Google Workspace customers.  Which leaves out the "consumer" service(s) that many here have been using for years.

Poly (and Google) have made no secret that they are interested in (paid) business customers, and not so much the (mostly cheap/free) consumer customers.

I think Google will pull the plug on the Obihai server come Dec 2023

I am not sure how to read all this.  Please clarify.  I have an OBI202 as my home phone now.  Are you saying the OBi300-302 can only be used by paid Google Workspace customers?

If not, what options are out there to continue using GV and need an ATA?
The current situation is that:

1.  OBi200/202/212 will continue to work with "consumer GV" until 18 December 2023.  They might continue to work with GV after that date but it will not be possible to configure or reconfigure one of those models to work with "consumer GV" after that date.

2.  Apart from the OBi ATAs and phones which support "consumer GV" today there are no other devices running their manufacturer's official firmware which do so.
