Finally: Google Voice Export Feature Released (sort of)

It took quite a while—more than two years since launching in March 2009—but Google Voice finally supports exporting!

I’d love to think my export format ideas post had something to do with the end product released yesterday, but I seriously doubt it.

Sort of…

Let’s just say, Google Takeout isn’t behaving very well. The test archive I created yesterday won’t download, and I’ve tried both Google Chrome 13 and Mozilla Firefox 3.6. The feature isn’t there yet, but I’m sure Google engineers are working on it.

I’m still happy…as soon as they make it actually work.
