Today, the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy Note 20 lines are also getting updates, only without the false hope.

The ongoing back and forth between Google and Apple concerning RCS and green bubbles took on a new level of confusion this week, when someone noticed that Apple is either taking credit for Google’s work or has created its own cross-platform reactions idea.
