Google Play Store makes some changes to support "High Quality" apps, but at what cost? Huyen has feelings. Google turns to the EU to help get Apple to support RCS while Nothing adds iMessage support to their phones. Black Friday deals are coming from Nothing and Google. More revelations from the Epic Games Vs. Google lawsuit. And we have a double patron pick with GBoard fixing landscape typing and Google's sweetheart deal offered to Netflix.
