People were left out of group chat rooms, ghostly, and ashamed that their lyrics are like green bubbles in iMessage. Over the years, Apple has turned all of the text bubbles away from iPhone users, while maintaining the blue bubbles of iPhone users, and this has created a certain drama. In the first episode 4 of the season why do you press this button? my general presenter, Kitylin Tiffany, and I discuss why the iPhone users rate their green friends. friends whose group chat was tense because one of them had an Android phone – until the time when the Android user was even shutting out of the chat. Then we talk with a woman who was supposed to leave iMessage completely to keep in touch with her best friend after she switched to her Android phone.

Executive Editor Verge Dieter Bohn also comes to the show to explain how messaging protocols work, and the real reason he thinks iMessage has a different color.
