Did you recently start getting a ringing phone alert in your Gmail when receiving an incoming call on your Google Voice phone number?

I did not make any settings changes. This seems to have been an automatic settings change by Google.

This week I started receiving a notification in my Gmail tab for incoming calls to by Google Voice line that was configured for direct to voice mail.

To turn this behavior back off and stop receiving the desktop alert, by sending voice calls directly to voice mail, please follow these steps.

- Login to Google Voice settings
- Go to the Calls tab, then check the box for Enable "Do Not Disturb"
