[Fixed] OBi110 is not working with Google Voice

Just a few days ago, my OBi110 device does not work with my Google Voice. I can not dial out, and no incoming call, until today, I fixed it.

Sometimes it said some configuration error. I sign in my OBiTalk account at https://www.obitalk.com/obinet/

Normally, the device OBi110 can do the firmware update through the OBiTalk account dashboard. but it did not work this time.

When I sign in my account, then go to the device configuration page. I can setup Google Voice account by clicking the gear icon beside the account. But, now it is shown a warning or error without setup.

Google Voice: Not Supported on OBi Devices After May 15, 2014

Back at the end of October, Obihai announced Google would end its support for the XMPP communication protocol. This announcement came on the heels of Google’s announcement that as of May 15th, XMPP would no longer be supported for third-party VoIP applications.
