Android's answer to iPhone Emergency SOS via satellite is being shut down – Tom's Guide

Snapdragon Satellite, the apparent Android rival to the iPhone’s Emergency SOS via satellite feature, is ending according to Qualcomm, the maker of the Snapdragon chips that power the best Android phones, and satellite comms company Iridium, the two companies that partnered to make it.

According to an Iridium press release, this satellite comms service will be officially ended as of December 3rd, 2023. Snapdragon Satellite was only announced in January of 2023 at CES, so this is a very abrupt death.
