Regular smartphones exchanged messages over a satellite network

SpaceX announced that for the first time, regular smartphones were able to send and receive SMS using Starlink Direct to Cell satellites. These satellites were launched into orbit just recently, on January 2, and they can connect directly to smartphones that do not have satellite communications support. According to the company, less than 6 days after launch, regular smartphones were able to successfully exchange text messages on T-Mobile’s network using the new Starlink satellites.

SpaceX plans to launch a satellite-based text messaging service later this year. This may be especially true in remote regions where there is no cellular coverage. At the same time, to connect to such services there will be no need to buy a new mobile device with a separate satellite communication function.

The ability to transmit voice, data, and the Internet of Things in this way may appear as early as 2025, the company notes. Its goal is to provide every person with communication anywhere without the need to use special phones or software. Communication should be available everywhere and using existing smartphones, SpaceX said.
