Qualcomm and Iridium Communications announced a partnership to bring satellite-based messaging to Android phones. The service, which will be powered by Iridium’s network of 66 low-Earth orbit satellites, will allow users to send and receive texts in areas with little or no cellular coverage, such as remote regions and disaster zones.

Qualcomm’s technology will enable the integration of the service into Android phones. The service is set to launch in the second half of 2023 and will be available to Android users through a software update. The partnership aims to bring reliable communication to underserved and remote areas, including first responders and disaster relief workers.
