SpaceX demonstrated its revolutionary ‘Direct to Cell’ capabilities by exchanging texts between mobile phones on Earth using newly-launched satellites.

SpaceX successfully transmitted texts via T-Mobile's cellular spectrum, proving reliable two-way communication through orbiting satellites. Direct to Cell, an extension of SpaceX's Starlink, expands global connectivity to billions of 4G LTE devices without the need for upgrades or new hardware.

SpaceX's custom components ensure compatibility, with plans to offer voice, data, and IoT services by 2025, all without requiring additional apps. Regulatory approvals will guide the rollout pace, but SpaceX's rocket reusability and in-house satellite production positions the company to scale rapidly.
