Google and T-Mobile are looking to create a more ubiquitous messaging experience on Android.
T-Mobile and Google are coming together to make messaging a more enjoyable experience for T-Mobile subscribers.
It’s already been established that Messages by Google is a fantastic text messaging experience, and having it as the default will introduce it to more users.
T-Mobile and Google Come Together
Google and T-Mobile are working together on several things, and one of the most exciting is the use of Google Messages as the default rich messaging solution for T-Mobile users with Android devices.
In a blog post on T-Mobile.com, the company said, “Google and T-Mobile are working together to lay the foundation for a more consistent, secure messaging experience worldwide.”
While Apple users are accustomed to using iMessage as the standard messaging platform, Android has been all over the place with its messaging options. This move could be one step closer to creating a ubiquitous messaging system across the Android ecosystem.
In addition to the switch, the update also mentioned that Google would keep working on its end-t0-end encryption with a rollout continuing throughout 2021.
When Will T-Mobile Make the Switch?
T-Mobile intends to complete this switchover to Messages by Google by the end of the year. Of course, if you’re a T-Mobile subscriber, you can switch to Messages whenever you want as long as you have an Android device.
The carrier also says 90 percent of Americans will get fast 5G by 2024.
