As is so often the case with Drake’s song “Texts Go Green”, Google took advantage of this popularity to remind Apple that the RCS protocol was still not implemented on its iPhones.
Google taunted Apple again with Drake’s song “Texts Go Green” in a video posted to the official Android Twitter account. This title, taken from Drake’s album “Honestly, Nevermind”, points directly at one of the most problematic aspects about iPhones.
The American singer reminds us that if a message appears in a blue bubble it is likely that it was sent from an iPhone using iMessage. If it appears in a blue bubble, it means that it uses the less reliable SMS protocol. This could be from an Android smartphone, or a user blocked on iMessage.
Google Reminds Apple That RCS is Still Slowly Adopted
Google’s tweet underscores Apple’s refusal to implement RCS protocol on iPhones+ Google describes the song as a “real stunner” and says the “phenomenon” of green speech bubbles for Android smartphone users is “pretty raw,” for both them and everyone else.
Some internet users have a vague idea about these green bubbles. They even pester their friends to get an iPhone. It should also be noted that Apple is intentionally endangering its users by refusing the RCS protocol. The SMS protocol is not encrypted between Android and iPhone users, unlike the RCS protocol.
The company says that only an Apple team of highly skilled engineers could solve this problem. Because it’s a problem only Apple can solve. They should just take over RCS.” This is not the first time Google has asked that Apple replace SMS by RCS and end imposing iMessage. However, we aren’t sure that this latest provocation will change the American giant’s mind.
