The coverage range of cellular networks is vast around the country, but despite these premium wireless services several regions are still untouched or have unstable cellular connectivity. The fact, that some regions of the Nation, even in today’s technophilic era, has got low to no stable cellular connectivity at all is very inconvenient and sometimes dangerous, in needy times. So, there is a need to reshape the world of Network connectivity. And the same is assured with upcoming Android 14.
Android 14 Coming For Your Phone To Have Satellite Support
Recently, there had been a partnership announcement between T Mobile and SpaceX, which can change the future shape of mobile networks and the new update to be launched with Android 14. “The two companies plan to offer connectivity in areas that currently don’t have access to cellular service using satellites. While the service is slated to launch in late 2023, it looks like Google’s Android OS will be ready when it goes live”, mentioned by xda developers.
Hiroshi Lockheimer, SVP or Senior Vice President of Android, Google, informed us via Twitter that Google is planning “design for satellites”.
“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 satellites. Cool! Excited to support our partners in enabling all of this in the next version of Android!”, his tweet reads.
“During the T-Mobile and SpaceX event, T-Mobile CEO and President Mike Sievert delivered a proclamation to “end mobile dead zones,” T-Mobile announced that it would partner with SpaceX to launch satellites that will make it possible to connect in rural areas without connectivity. The company’s “Coverage Above and Beyond” service won’t go live until sometime in late 2023, but it will initially support access to messaging, MMS, and select messaging apps. There are plans to expand the service to include voice and wireless internet eventually. It is uncertain whether other carriers or companies will join the satellite movement, but having Google commit to the technology seems like an excellent first step to having it widely adopted,” mentioned by xda developers.
