The advance towards satellite connectivity on mobile devices seems to be getting closer with the arrival of Android 15. We have been able to know this through some lines of code in Android 15 beta. Let's see what is known so far about the Android 15 satellite connection.

It seems that the next version of Android 15 will natively integrate the satellite connection. With the arrival of this new connectivity, users They will be able to send and receive text messages through satellites thus allowing communication even in areas without mobile coverage.

Thanks to him 9to5google portal (who have shown the image that you can see above) we have been able to learn more details about how this system of satellite internet. Specifically, what has given us clues about its operation are some lines of code in beta version 20240329_01_RC00 of the new Android. The lines of text say like this.

  • “To send and receive, stay outside with a clear view of the sky”
  • "Satellite messaging may take longer and may not include photos or videos"
  • "You can send messages to anyone, including emergency services"

According to these lines it can be understood that this function will serve to never lose coverage wherever we are. Well, with one limitation, and that is that according to the first line you have above, the best to get a good satellite coverage is having clear skies. This way the connection will be more stable and faster.

When we have this new functionality we will see if the satellite connection is effective from closed spaces.

News of special importance for rural areas

Good news for rural areas without coverage

This news may be especially welcome in areas where current coverage is not good. Imagine being able to send messages without having to use a mobile network or a Wi-Fi internet connection, It would be a revolution for tens of thousands of people in Spain alone.

The arrival of satellite connection to Android phones can have a significant impact on the development of remote areas where there are no internet services both in Spain and in the rest of the world. Either by being able to maintain direct communication with family members or even by having better health or emergency coverage.

But as I said, this is a mere rumor at the moment since Google has not confirmed anything to date. This functionality may or may not finally end up coming to Android. We will have to wait for more news about this possible new satellite connection.
