@hinterwaeldler Yeeaahhh, Google can't figure out messaging to save its life
@corbin On the other hand, the general sentiment here seems to be that we don't need any chat apps from them. They wouldn't commit to an open, federated system (e.g. they killed off their #xmpp compatibility). And nowadays people seem to think that #google even tries to create a walled-garden with GMail.
I tend to agree to both opinions. Nevertheless, I'm amused by googles efforts. :-)
@corbin Also, here's a really great video from #theverge about the new #google chat strategy: https://www.theverge.com/2018/4/19/17252486/google-android-messages-chat-rcs-anil-sabharwal-imessage-texting
