Transcript for Google urges Apple to add next-generation standard for text messaging
- In today's Tech Bytes, Google is urging Apple to fix the way it handles texts. The company wants Apple to adopt a next generation standard for text messaging to replace SMS. Google says, the new standard addresses the green-blue text bubble issue between Android and iPhone users. And a new 97-inch TV from LG Display promises to create movie-like sound. The giant panel vibrates, helping produce audio without the use of a built-in speaker. It's expected to cost about $25,000 when it becomes available later this year. And finally, more teens addicted to their phones and tablets. The number of teens who admit they're almost always online has nearly doubled since 2014, jumping to 46%. Researchers say the app teens use the most, YouTube. Those are your Tech Bytes.
