Google asks Apple to stop green bubble bullying on iMessage

10 January 2022
The Twitter account of Android says “the solution exists”, suggesting the multi-colored bubble solution should be axed.

Sort by:

TBH not a big deal, it's literally not a big deal. Who cares if your color is green or blue in some message app?

        This is definitely an american problem which has started to trickle into some other countries. I didn't know there was such a stigma until i saw people talking about it on twitter a few years ago, my response was, yeah someone could be using an android phone, and that android phone could be the ferrari or vertu phone that are worth 10 times more than an iPhone 13 pro Max 1TB and somebody could be using an iPhone 5 to send that iMessage. Hopefully Apple won't bend to these ridiculous demands from android, it's very good to know if your messages are being sent for free or if you are going to be charged for international texts/mms.
        The only other solution i could see is Apple selling a $10 monthly subscription to use iMessage app on android.

            I've seen this on social media: people get made fun of if they own an Android phone because their videos look "grainy and laggy". This happens even with the most expensive Android phones. Google is to blame and they aren't doing anything about it.

              I'm sincerely having a wt*f moment right now. First world problems, it's like these exist just for the sake of existence.

                  Wow lowlives still banking on color if bubbles, that's disgusting tactics to keep locked in I see

                    what the hell.. who uses i message anyway?

                      You Americans are beyond weird with your iMessage obsession. No one else in the world uses it.

                                People use imessage for chatting?
                                Most people I know use WhatsApp or messenger

                                  You can not be serious with these "news". Really, affecting the mental health of Android users? That's the best news I've seen in a while. Probably in the USA, these things are the subject of all sort of big lawsuits but I live in EU and around here, that sort of "issues" are regarded more like odd facts invented by a very well rested mind.

                                    notafanboy, 10 Jan 2022Can't believe this is considered "news". I can't believe this is even an issue. I never thought green can be racist. Now we know it can.
