Continuing the discussion from VoLTE questionable support and future of the L5 phone:
I think there may be some older threads on this as well, but this post brought it to the forefront for me again.
Related to the post above, it is a (relatively) recent development that GV calls default over data on the phone. The handoff between wifi and cellular data is… Sub-par… but this does point to SIP as a potential alternative to VoLTE. I’m not sure how I feel about it as the official solution, but I don’t hate it. Though I would miss having 2 numbers on one device.
I would love to see a libre GV alternative. As someone whom has been using GV since it was Grand Central, I haven’t found even a non-free replacement. Sure, some things offer some of the functionality but none I’ve found offer all of the functionality I use, much less all of the capability in total.
Being as the L5 would likely use the web page for GV, can the web pages wake the L5 from screen off for an incoming call?
