Today is Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2019. Here’s what you need to know:
Chances are, you’ve had a professor use Remind – an app that can send out reminder texts and announcements to students – in a past class.
You might not be getting those reminder texts anymore: Verizon is imposing a new “spam” fee on apps that send messages via text, . The effort is meant to crack down on spam robotexts, but it also affects the free reminder service.
Remind is calling on Verizon to reverse the fee, according to the app’s website. If the fee isn’t reversed, Verizon users will stop getting text notifications from Remind on Jan. 28.
“The fee will increase our cost of supporting text messaging to at least 11 times our current cost–forcing us to end free Remind text messaging for the more than 7 million students, parents and educators who have Verizon wireless as their carrier.”
