    Just got around to starting to use this. Does anyone use this feature regularly?

    Does it use a lot of mobile data if you connect over LTE?

    Yes streaming music. I’m using a lot Tidal app. Safari and for sure facetime video calling with my girlfriend and audio calls.

    I use it (though it is annoying that it doesn't remember the devices that I've already authorized). I don't use it over LTE but I don't see why it would use significantly more than straight SMS.

    Fetching the interface would use a lot more data than pure text SMS. And Google is well known for bloated code and trackers that chew through your data.

    Do you have a lot of issues with "unpairing"?

    Yes. Very annoying.

    That's definitely a shame. I don't mind the blue bubble/green bubble crap, but I definitely want messages to work on my laptop.
