It looks like Google has some new plans for its Hangouts app on Android. A new rumor suggests that Google will kill support for carrier SMS and MMS in its next update.
Google Voice has announced that it now supports MMS on Verizon. The MMS support was announced to Google Voice last month to almost all the carriers in the US and Canada except Verizon.
iPhone apps are so much fun to use ! There is always something interesting about the new apps on the Apple app Store. I just spotted an app which makes sending a photo as a MMS over AT&T pointless. The Kocking iPhone app developed by Pointy Heads Software in USA redefines photo sharing on the iPhone.
Good news for our US iPhone readers. AT&T are slowly rolling out MMS for it’s customers. That’s 2 whole weeks ahead of the announced 25th September day. MMS support should be available slowly for all their customers, since at the moment, very few people have reported that their MMS has been activated.
AT&T has finally announced that, on September 25, it is going to roll out a software update which is going to add the required support for sending and receiving MMS messages for all its iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS customers.
One of the major qualm of iPhone customers was the lack of MMS support from the AT&T side although iPhone had added the MMS support in its 3.0 Software Upgrade.
AT&T has stated that the projected high data usage of the iPhone’s multimedia capabilities was one of the main reason behind the delay in the rollout of MMS Support for all the iPhone 3G and 3GS Customers. You can read the complete AT& T’s company statement here.
