I use google voice and hangouts (connected to each other) on both my Chromebook and android phone.  Is there a way to avoid getting an email to my gmail account every time someone sends me an SMS.  I don't mind the pop-up window on my computer, but it seems redundant that a window pops up in gmail, the SMS is sent to my android hangouts app, AND I get an email in my gmail (and alerted that way).  Again, I don't mind the pop-up window.  I don't even mind the transcription of a missed voicemail through google voice emailed to me.  But the email every time someone sends me an SMS is driving me bonkers and has me avoiding texting anyone.  Thanks for any help.

This should stop you from getting emails for every SMS that comes into Google Voice / Hangouts!

Marwin - I'm getting the same. They started as a Hangout request, but they've since expanded to Hangout chats, follow-up Hangout calls and more recently to follow-up emails. I've started sending screenshots using the feedback function in the Android app. I have my hangout restrictions as

Thank you for the post. Other than providing feedback directly to the app, is there any way to request the option of multiple emoji packs to choose from, or perhaps a wider selection of stickers? (Specifically, the orange cats really stood out in a positive way)
