Terrible Google Voice Change

Icon Leave Comment
This one will be short and sweet. I use Google Voice to forward SMS (and at some point in the last three years they added MMS) to my gmail account. It used to be plaintext or the image(s) in the case of MMS. This past week, plaintext went away in favor of this monstrosity:

Generally when software fails, there is some sort of error message that informs the user what happened and what, if anything, they can do to rectify it. Then there are cases where is no such message and the user is left with nothing. And then there's this:
