If only iMessage was offered on the Google Play Store
I am a long time Android user (let’s not get into that). Recently broke my S8 had to temp switch to an old iPhone 6s a friend had lying around. Love iMessage.
It’s not a difficult concept or hardcoded for iOS. It’s just a WiFi messenger just like WhatsApp. Just half of the US population uses it.
If Apple launched iMessage for Android and charged me $.99/mo id happily give up my money.
I couldn’t find you one Android user who wouldn’t download iMessage in a heartbeat if they could.
It’s nothing special, but it would be better to have EVERYONE on one unified wifi messaging app versus more than half of the word on SMS and the other quarter on wifi texting that is much superior.
Any thoughts on this? I doubt they’d lose customers to Android just bcos iMessage is available on both. If anything, people would like the experience and swap over to iOS possibly on their next device.
