If there will be one, of course.That's the question. Last updated firmware was a couple years ago. As SteveInWA has noted, Poly has seemed to lose interest in the consumer side of their business.
Quote from: Taoman on June 15, 2021, 09:45:50 AMIt's anyone's guess if we'll ever get updated firmware again from Poly. If using Google Voice, I would have backup routes in place with other ITSPs like Callcentric, Voip.ms, Anveo, Localphone, etc.
Quote from: MSRobi on June 15, 2021, 12:00:36 PMAre you looking at other devices as well?
Quote from: MSRobi on June 15, 2021, 05:52:46 PMI think if we see Poly stop selling the devices with "Google Voice" prominently displayed in the front of device we should definitely be worried.
Quote from: SoNic67 on June 15, 2021, 08:15:22 AMAfter latest disconnect from Google Voice servers, it seems that an updated formware from Poly will be needed:https://support.google.com/voice/thread/112962833/obi202-will-not-connect-to-gv?msgid=113251887I wonder if there is any timeline for that update?

Hopefully the firmware will come sooner than later, as I don't think that replacing the certificate is such a big change!I see that for those devices, the last update was in March 2019.
Quote from: MSRobi on July 14, 2021, 04:26:30 PMIt is possible that anybody at Polycom that knew how to maintain the firmware has left the company. There are plenty of signs that Polycom does not care very much about the consumer side of their business.As a backup, I'm hoping a 3rd party can make the firmware change...I see a website obifirmware.com that is still running, I hope those people are still around and are able to do the firmware update if Polycom doesn't come through.

Quote from: SteveInWA on July 10, 2021, 05:16:29 PMThe non-trivial part would be distributing the update(s) via a combination of pushing to devices that are enabled for remote updates, posting links for manual downloads of the firmware, and dealing with the thousands of people who have disabled updates without understanding what they've done, and then ranting and raging. It's going to be a shit-storm.

Even in this topic as recent as July 10th, you wrote:"The yet-to-be-determined issue is whether or not Poly chooses to do so."which isn't very confidence inspiring. That is why I "spam" the forum, as you say.
QuotePoly is working on a new firmware release. Hopefully, Poly will attempt to automatically update all devices that have not been disabled for remote, automatic updates. Devices that can't be updated automatically will need the user to manually download the new firmware and update the device themselves.
