Voyager 2 is expected to keep transmitting until at least after 2025, over 48 years since launch..
It's currently looking for the border between the suns heliosphere and interstellar space..

Each Voyager carries a gold-plated audio-visual disc in the event that either spacecraft is ever found by intelligent extrasolar life-forms. The disc carries images of Earth and its lifeforms, a range of scientific information, and a medley, "Sounds of Earth", that includes the sounds of whales, a baby crying, waves breaking on a shore and a variety of music.
