Android phones could steal a major feature from iPhone 14

We’ve already heard rumors that Android phones could get a version of iPhone 14’s Emergency SOS via satellite feature. Back during CES, Qualcomm announced plans to add satellite support to future phones, but now it sounds like Google could be working on its own version of the feature.
