The integration allowed users use their regular Sprint number on their phone as a Google Voice number.
The Sprint-Google partnership started back in 2011. Both the giants teamed up together to integrate Sprint numbers with Google’s Voice service. The partnership allowed users use their existing number through Sprint with Google Voice to do a number of tasks including call and message forwarding, using the Google Voice online interface, and transcribe voicemails.

Your calls will no longer be stored in Google Voice’s app and website. Sprint is advising customers to disable the integration before June 1.
Moreover, Sprint users can still use Google Voice as a forwarding service if they still fond of those features. To do so, they’ll just need to sign up for a new Google Voice number from Google.
