Google and Garmin Rumored to Collaborate on Satellite Texting for Android 14
The realm of mobile communication is about to take a celestial leap with Android 14, as Google’s commitment to providing texting via satellite link inches closer to reality. A recent leak, uncovering hidden code snippets, hints at Garmin’s role in making this ambitious venture a reality.
Developer Neil Rahmouni, who has been closely tracking developments in Android, discovered the cryptic code snippets that reference a “Garmin Response” option within Google Messages—an integral part of Android’s default SMS application. While this development aligns with Google’s earlier confirmation of satellite texting becoming an option in Android 14, Rahmouni wisely cautions that everything remains subject to change during this ongoing development phase.
