Re: Just another Google project
Really? Who told you that?
Incidentally, I use SMS all the time for brief messages, as do 100% of my friends.
I tried to remove myself from a family group on Messenger, which could be used as an alternative except for the reason I removed myself. My phone was constantly pinging because someone had put something on Messenger which was nothing to do with me, and then lots of people started adding their 2 cents worth. Bloody drove me mad.
I was then reinstated by one of the family because I was "one of the family" so I turned off notifications, so now I have peace and quiet. The downside is I miss out on some of the news, but as we use SMS or an actual phone call to communicate one-on-one, it's not a great loss.
