Apple's green messages are dividing the internet

If you're an Apple user then you're probably all too familiar with the dreaded green message. The green text bubble indicates that you're texting with someone who either has iMessage off or is operating on a non-Apple phone – but now Google wants to do something about it. 

Google has launched an entire campaign to combat the green bubble shame by calling out Apple to "Get the Message". While some Apple users think the alternative bubble colour is a genius marketing ploy to shame Android users into buying an iPhone, others are fed up with the guilty green. If the green bubble has gotten the better of you already, then why not check out our roundup of the best iPhone 13 deals? Or if you'd rather make the switch to Android to combat Apple's mind games, then have a look at our roundup of the best Samsung Galaxy S21 deals.
