    Google Voice can only receive picture messages from Sprint and T-Mobile numbers. Google Voice cannot sent picture messages.

    I believe group messages are sent via MMS which Google Voice does not support. There is no native workaround.

    Both group messages and pictures messages use the MMS protocol, which (unless something has changed recently) Google Voice doesn't support. I don't know that there is anything that they can change on their end, other than to send you an email w/ attachment rather than a picture message.

    Perhaps you could get them to use Hangouts instead of text messages...? I have several friends/family memebers that I use Hangouts exclusively with and we love it. Does group messages and you can send pictures as well. Just an idea.

    ...or use regular SMS/MMS in Google Hangouts instead of Google Voice.
