Carl Pei Trolls Apple Through a Tweet – Get to Know More

A recent tweet by Carl Pei, the co-founder of OnePlus and CEO at Nothing trolled Apple.

The image shared shows Apple and Google (with an android brain) personified as people. Apple is shown asking Google, “Pass android features so we can add them in iOS”, in the picture. Google, then passes Apple a piece of paper only to be trolled, as the paper reads, “It’s time for Apple to fix texting.”

Some tweets have been praising Lei for his humor whereas, others are not really happy about the tweet. 

Android, on its website, wrote about how Apple needs to fix its messaging features. The problem seems to appear during cross-device messaging, causing blurry videos, broken group chats, missing read receipts, typing indicators, and how the text goes green when exchanging messages with an Android user. 

How did it start?

Last year in August, Insider reported that “iPhone owners have long blamed Android owners for difficulties when cross-device messaging. But yesterday, Google took the debate to the next level, placing the blame squarely on Apple.”

Google blames Apple for using age-old methods of sending text-only messages between devices. Google says, according to Insider, that Apple should use Rich Communication Services, a more modern means to share emojis, videos, and photos through text. 

Android even started the help @apple#GetTheMessage campaign and asked users to share the message. Celebrities like Vanessa Hudgens have shared videos supporting the campaign. 

When Canadian rapper, Drake, released his song ‘Texts Go Green’, the Google team interpreted it as a complaint against iPhone turning Android users’ text green. They even posted an ‘unofficial lyric explainer video’ on Twitter.
