Let us know about all this in detail.
Satellite connectivity support will be given in Android 14
Apple iPhone 14 Series is being launched on 7 September 2022. According to the news that has surfaced so far, this device will be offered with satellite connectivity. Apart from the iPhone 14, now Google has also confirmed to provide satellite connectivity support in Android smartphones.
Wild to think about user experiences for phones that can connect to satellites. When we launched G1 in ’08 it was a stretch to get 3G + Wifi working. Now we’re designing for satellites. Cool! Excited to support our partners in enabling all of this in the next version of Android!
