I know too many people that don't leave messages, but will keep calling until they reach me. I'd rather call them back before they've tried to call me at home ten-twenty times because I was at the office. (There's already a request for a soft-phone app, so I could call them back from the office...)
Problem is, the Lounge doesn't auto-refresh, about which I have also entered a request. Further, the Lounge logs me out after a few minutes of inactivity. In contrast, Google Voice will stay up in the background and automatically refresh when a new call comes in.thbjr wrote:...or check your call log in the lounge. For me personally, I'd rather not have my inbox filled with notifications of missed telemarketer calls.
Note that this is a "feature" request - you don't have to use it, just like you don't have to get email notification for left messages. I don't get a lot of telemarketer calls, and I'd rather get emails for the ones I do get than miss a call I'm looking for but doesn't leave a message. (Besides, for whatever reason, telemarketers are more likely than real people to leave a message. And I already have blocked numbers go straight to voicemail.)
And for what it's worth, I have also entered this (email notification on missed calls) as a request on Google Voice.
