SMS: Ability to receive verification code (short code) via text messages

Currently, verification code text messages sent from websites like Google do not come through the RingCentral SMS service. Therefore I am unable to add my RingCentral number as the primary number for Google to use for notifications, which impacts our business negatively.

    Working in admin in a Canadian business, not being able receive short code text verification is a huge hassle and inconvience. My general manager and I find it quite baffling that this is not available in Canada.

    Is this still an issue? Is this for both receiving and sending? Are you in Canada?

    According to my account rep, this does not work in Canada and it isn't on the roadmap: She also confirmed that the beta high-volume SMS feature does not support it (At least, again, in Canada).

    This still does not work. My communication regarding this today.

    This is Jenny from RingCentral handling your case XXXXX about SMS verification.

    Upon checking, this service is currently not supported by RingCentral. We are working with our product team to develop this functionality. At this time we do not have an ETA.

    As a workaround in the interim, we use the option to have those services call us instead.

    Hi Jessica - This does not appear to be resolved for our Canadian users. We are not receiving texts from short code #s at all for verification purposes. Apple, Google, ETC. It works as expected for our US users. Any information would be appreciated.

    We have never had an issue RECEIVING texts FROM shortcodes... believe me- they spam us all day. The issue is that we cannot RESPOND to or BLOCK these numbers. This is yet again NOT implemented but you keep flagging it as implemented.

    Hi all, this should now be resolved and you should be able to receive texts from short code numbers.

    I just switched to Ring Central and this feature is a must have for businesses. We publish our business numbers on Google, Facebook Business Page, Business What's app. Because of this feature not working we are unable to confirm/ verify our business phone numbers with many websites. Please set this as a priority for the next implementation and get it done asap. I see this thread was created on July 29, 2020 and this feature has not been implemented yet. All other competitors has this feature enabled.

    Yes, I received this further confirmation from RC:


    This is Joel form Tier 2 support and we are following up on the issue with short code message / OTP.

    We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused you but we would like to inform you that we have confirmed that this issue has been reported as a bug which also happened to other customers.
