The Google Messages satellite connection doesn’t just work for emergencies

There’s nothing more frustrating than suddenly finding yourself without insurance when you need to send an urgent message.

Mobile phone manufacturers are working closely with mobile operators to solve this problem. One of the options currently being examined is satellite connection.

According to 9to5Google, the long-awaited satellite connectivity feature could soon be coming to Google Messages. Contrary to what was initially assumed, This feature would not be limited to emergency situations onlybut allows you to send text messages to your friends and family over the satellite network.

Details in the Google Messages beta offer an idea of ​​how this satellite connectivity would work. First, you need clear skies to use the signal. Also note that you cannot send photos or videos, only text messages and they may be sent at a slower speed. However, The advantage is that you will apparently be able to send messages to anyone, even emergency services.

This form of connectivity is expected to be available with Android 15, assuming it receives final approval. Developers who already have access to Android 15 have seen a notification stating this «Automatic connection to the satellite». Once connected, you can send and receive messages without needing cellular service or Wi-Fi.

As Google prepares to launch satellite connectivity, Apple has already introduced similar services with the iPhone 14 series, but only for emergency messaging.
