Now that iOS and Android are approaching technical maturity, new updates to these operating systems no longer feel revolutionary. The new stuff we get every year is boiling down to smarter notification handling, under-the-hood upgrades, screen notch adaptations, and â€œborrowingâ€ good ideas from one another. As Google prepares to take the wraps off its next big iteration, Android P, at Google I/O 2018, I have an idea for an alliterative theme: make it Android P for Privacy.
Fully agreed with Vlad Savov. Sadly, the lack of encryption in Google’s new chat feature doesn’t bode well.
Why don’t you think before going on a rant? Why don’t you read responses of people that obviously taken a few seconds to read, understand and reply?
If SMS is to be replaced with a new protocol better suitable to modern use then it is an SMS replacement.
An SMS replacement intended to be used globally, transparently. Without managing users, without managing passwords. Something that means an South African user can send a message to a Indian user and it just works.
HOW THE HELL WOULD A STANDARD LOW COMPLEXITY SMS++ SHOEHORN IN END-TO-END ENCRYPTION?
Do you understand how that works? That’s a rhetorical question – you obviously do not.
