Google Voice starts ending XMPP support in June '18 (Google Voice Gateway, Asterisk, Obihai users possibly affected)
OBi2xx ATAs that are visible to Obitalk (with Obitalk Service and Obitalk Provisioning are enabled in the ATA) and added to Obitalk.com accounts are having 3.2.2 (Build: 5898EX) firmware pushed to them, regardless of warranty or support status, which supports the new Google Voice platform. The only official way, at the time of this post, to receive the firmware update is to enable Obitalk Service and Obitalk Provisioning.
Edit: Someone has posted the OBi2xx manual firmware download link for firmware version 3.2.2 (Build: 5921EX):
http://www.obitalk.com/forum/index.php? ... 2#msg95322.
That is, at the time of this post, the latest firmware version for OBi2XXX ATAs and also supports Google Voice.
The migration is starting: https://www.obitalk.com/forum/index.php ... 4#msg90754.
Note that by updating your device to the official OBi2xx firmware version 3.2.2 (Build: 5898EX)
1. in the event you have problems with 3.2.2 (Build: 5898EX), you can't downgrade to a lower firmware version below 3.2.2. (Build: 5859EX),
2. you can't apply the hacked firmware version of 3.2.2. (Build: 5859EX) that allows you to provision Google Voice without using Obitalk.com.
Edit: there’s now a newer version of the hacked firmware, and it may be possible to downgrade so that you can apply it. Follow the appropriate link to ask questions.
It appears as though XMPP death is slated for June 18, 2018:

The end of XMPP support is an issue for Obihai 1xx ATA users: https://www.obitalk.com/info/faq/About- ... nouncement.

OBi1xx should follow this thread: https://www.dslreports.com/forum/r31741 ... Discussion.
Bill Simon's Google Voice Gateway customers appear to be out of luck:
Asterisk users should visit https://www.dslreports.com/forum/r32016 ... discussion
Also visit http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r319385 ... ~start=330 for related discussion.
OBi2xx users should follow these threads: http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r31961509- and http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r31961804- (use hacked firmware at your own risk).
If you're not using hacked firmware or can't find the firmware file to manually update your device yourself, then this situation requires Obihai device owners, including OBi2xx ATA users, to enable Obitalk Service and Obitalk Provisioning in their devices in order to ensure new firmware gets pushed to their devices, which, in turn, will ensure Google Voice works after June 18, 2018. For those that disabled those settings, you will have to visit https://forums.redflagdeals.com/newegg- ... #p28508704 and enable those settings (do the reverse of steps 1 to 3 in that post).
Be sure to backup your current ATA settings first before enabling Obitalk Provisioning because you then run the risk of having settings from your Obitalk.com account being transferred to your ATA and replacing your existing settings in your ATA.
1. Dial ***1. Enter the IP address you hear into a web browser, and login to your ATA.
2. Navigate to System Management-->Device Update-->Backup Configuration
3. Check running status, inl. default value, and use OBi Version boxes.
4. Click the Backup button. Save the file
Note that passwords will not be saved in the file.
And that's how you backup your ATA settings.
Don't do the following if you're happy with the current settings you have in your Obitalk.com account for your ATA or, otherwise, have the current settings you use in your ATA already duplicated in your Obitalk.com account.
To import device/ATA settings into Obitalk, login at Obitalk.com.
That grey cog wheel with the "E" is for the expert configuration menu.
It shows when logging in at http://www.obitalk.com, selecting "Edit Profile" on the left, then scrolling down
under "Advanced Options" and finally selecting "Enable OBi Expert Entry from Dashboard."
A. Click the E in the pic.
B. On the left, select "Return to OBi Expert Configuration Menu"
C. Navigate to Manage Expert Configuration. Click the browse button, and select the file you saved in the step 4.
D. Select "Import Config to OBi Expert"
You will then need to go into the OBi Expert settings (E cog wheel) menu at Obitalk.com, and go through all your of device settings pages to check that your settings are what you want them to be. You may be required to re-enter and submit all your SIP and GV passwords.
Every time you see a red explanation mark, uncheck both the "Device Default" and "Obitalk Settings" boxes to see the value you imported from the ATA. If you don't know what you're doing with GV settings, leave them at defaults (only change digitmap, for example . . . don't start fiddling with proxyserver names).
You will then need to save changes on every single page where you've had to uncheck the "device default" and "obitalk settings" boxes—or where you’ve made any changes.
Also, after enabling Obitalk Service and Obitalk Provisioning, login at Obitalk.com, navigate to System Management--> Auto Provisioning-->Auto Firmware Update
In the FirmwareURL field blank out (delete) whatever is there. Also double check that the FirmwareURL field is also blank in the ATA (via LAN IP). Additionally, if firmware doesn't update, try setting Auto Firmware Update to "System Start" at Obitalk.com. Hopefully, the ATA will then reboot and update firmware.
