RCS texting comes to Google Fi, Rocket League goes cross-platform
This is CNET, and here are the stories that matter right now.
Google Fi is introducing RCS chat for phones that can support it.
RCS is an update to standard SMS texting, that offers much-improved features, like read receipts, notifications when a contact is typing, and much more.
Until now, only iPhone users could enjoy these types of features.
But now a number of Android users can join the party.
Apple's race to support 5G may be bogged down by a chip battle with Qualcomm.
Apple says it wanted to use Qualcomm's 4G LTE processors in its newest iPhone but Qualcomm wouldn't comply.
And that might lead to a delay in terms of how quickly Apple can pivot to support new 5G network.
And finally, Rocket League, the ultra popular, battlecar-soccer hybrid video game, is now fully cross-platform, meaning players can game online regardless of what consul they're using.
Even P-S four has joined the party after Sony delayed its support of the multi-platform game, Fortnite.
