    It seems like it might be RCS, in which case my options are Google Messaging or nothing. QKSMS does look nice, though, thanks.

    I noticed that in the LG Messaging app the messages that don't get sent to Textra are labeled "chat." Is that something to do with RCS?

    I've been using Textra for years, but there's some new protocol whose name I don't remember that Textra isn't compatible with.

    Audacity should be simple enough. The only thing to note I can think of is OP will need to use "export audio" to make an mp3 etc.

    Keep in mind that 30 confirmed cases means the actual number of infections is definitely higher than that, including those who can transmit the illness but don't have symptoms.

    The same reason they accept Epic exclusivity contracts: Money. Epic was paying devs enough to completely fund the development of a game, enough to the point that multiple devs that had promised Steam keys went back on their word iirc. I doubt Google is paying any less.
