PreCentral: Send Google Voice message to ANY contact with SynerGV 2

Messaging - Google VoiceSynergGV 2, by Eric Blade, allows you to send and receive Google Voice messages directly in the stock Messaging app on your TouchPad (or

), but has a pretty big limitation in that you can only initiate a conversation to someone in your Google Voice contacts list or by manually typing in the entire phone number. If you keep all your contacts in Google, this is a nonissue, but if you use your Palm Profile or Facebook to keep track of phone numbers, you are out of luck. That is, unless you know a little trick to initiate a conversation to anyone in your contact list, regardless of which synergy account they reside in.

Unfortunately, you can not use to search for your contact, nor can you open an existing conversation with that contact.  In addition, this new Google Voice messaging conversation that you are about to create will not be integrated into that existing conversation like all other do, but will rather remain as a separate thread unless and until you add that contact and their associated phone number to your Google contacts.  Regardless, to send the Google Voice message to any contact, just follow the directions below

  1. Open up the Messaging app
  2. Tap the new SMS icon to create a new message
  3. Do a and then tap on the number you want to send a Google Voice message to.
  4. You will see that the contact's name, and not their number, should be listed in the "To" field.  Tap on that name to display the number.
    • On the TouchPad, the number should be highlighted. Tap at the end of the number to place the cursor at the end of the number and then press the space bar
    • On phones, the cursor should already be at the beginning of the number. Just press the space bar once
  5. Once you do that, the number will no longer be associated with your contact, but instead webOS will just think that it’s a number you manually entered. All you need to do is tap the SynerGV2 messaging icon icon in the "IM WITH "(XXX) XXX-XXXX" USING" to address your Google Voice message with that contact

As stated above, if you don't want to go through this hassle you just need to to your Google account and you should be able message with them directly in the future. Note, though, that this will not be available immediately as you need to wait for webOS to sync back between your Google and Google Voice accounts before it will show in your SynerGV account on your device.

is available in the webOS App Catalog for $4.99 and is compatible with all webOS devices running webOS 3.0 or higher. If you know how to use , you can install SynerGV on devices running 2.1 or higher after it was purchased on a TouchPad.

      A couple days ago My LG Oled voice recognition stopped working.
      If I speak to it it just says "Voice not recognized"
      I have tried many things I found online to fix this issue with no luck.
      One suggestion was to go to Settings>all settings>general>AI Service>Voice recognition service and change to LG ThinQ.
      But the  Voice recognition service tab is gone. There is only voice recognition settings tab 
      I would rather not have to reset to factory settings unless there is a way to save / export my current seating's
      Any suggestions  

      Thanks

      I've had an LG OLED65C9PUA for years and have never had this problem until very recently.
      Now every time I try to use the voice command to enter a search sequence, the "SPEAK NOW" activates and shuts off within half a second. It doesn't matter how I activate the voice command function or what app I'm using that has the function built in. Such as YouTube or even the Web Browser or whether I activate the voice search with the onscreen microphone icon or the microphone key on the remote. All voice command attempts shut down within half a second. There isn't even time enough for anything said to be recognized or even "not recognized".
      Fresh batteries have no effect on the problem. Turning the TV off and back on has no effect on the problem. Removing and replacing the batteries has no effect on the problem. Reregistering the remote to the TV via the extended holding of the GUIDE button has no effect.
      How do I restore the voice command function for the remote?

      I have been trying to get my Google Home and Nest Audio Speakers to turn my LG OLED65C24LA TV on and off.   I have linked ThinQ to Google Home but it still wouldn't work.  So plan B was to get a Chromecast to do this one simple voice activated request....I have no intentions of using Chromecast for anything else!
      So this actually does work, however, when asking it to turn the TV on, it defaults to the home page of Chromecast TV, I want it to just open to my normal TV system, which is Sky Q.  Ideally, I would like to disconnect the Chromecast and just get Google Home and ThinQ to do this !!
      I have checked every setting and trawled the internet for a solution.  I've posted on the AV Forum in the UK and the Google Forum and I'm waiting on a call back from LG Support UK.
      I expected this to be a VERY simple task !!
      Can anyone help with this ?

      Hi !
      I am going to buy a new LG TV, probably - which comes with WebOS (not android TV). Now, one of the features I really liked with Android TV is the ability to set ambient mode with chosen google photos albums. Is it possible also with WebOS? (without connecting any external streamer, I prefer to use the TV operating system).

      Thanks!

      The title more or less says it. I got an LG C3 over the weekend. I have chromecast with google tv for the other TVs in the house so was hoping to stay within that ecosystem. The native apps work well (except that Plex won't play dolby vision), but I've noticed a strange quirk with the chromecast. It plays Dolby Vision just fine and without issues, but standard HDR content gets played in SDR. I've made sure that the "Deep Color" mode is enabled for that HDMI port, but I'm not sure where the trouble is coming form.
      Any insights or things to try would be appreciated!
