Are you an Apple user who has just transitioned to an android user? Finding it difficult to send and receive messages or just got bored with the messaging interface on Android? Or maybe, just wanted to try out the Apple messaging app, iMessage on Android?
Then worry no more as There’s a new app for all you folks.
This app is made for those hardcore apple junkies who can’t live without the iMessage app. iMessage as a messaging platform has gained a lot of users since the past years, and this is why it is one of the popular ways to connect with people. Sadly, it was available only as a messaging platform between iOS devices but not anymore! Here is what the official website says –
weMessage brings the popular messaging platform iMessage to your Android device, without reverse engineering or exploits. It does this by running as a server on your Mac machine, and sends your iMessages straight to the weMessage app on your phone. In addition to being lightning fast and incredibly easy to setup, it comes loaded with many of iMessage’s coveted features and even more!
“weMessage” brings the popular messaging platform iMessage for Android devices.
It’s a standalone application available on the Google Play Store which doesn’t require any root access whatsoever.
Although the features are just the same, let’s recollect so that you get an idea why this is the best app to get iMessage support for Android –
1) GROUP MESSAGING:
weMessage allows you to text a single person or make groups by adding people and customizing group chats. You can create a group, rename it, add people or remove people from the group.
Sometimes, we just have to transfer certain documents or songs. Why use Email for it? weMessage does it all. You can send and receive an image, audio, or video attachments directly.
3) EVEN MORE CUSTOMIZATION:
The weMessage app is loaded with customization options. It gives you the power to change contact pictures, group names and group chat icons.
4) READ RECEIPTS:
This is indeed our favourite feature. Must you be knowing the blue-tick in WhatsApp right? Yep, you’ll get to see whether they’ve seen your message or not.
No one can spy on your messages as all the messages are encrypted using AES cryptography which is an encryption standard used by the U.S government.
And much more…
We can also call it a cross breed between Whatsapp and your traditional Messaging application. There is built-in Browser and video player in the weMessage application that makes it different from the rest.
I’m excited! How do I get this?
To be able to use this application you’ll be needing:
MacOS computer running Yosemite or above.
Android device running Android Lollipop and Above.
After that, you have to download the app on your android device and the weserver software on your Mac system. After installation, It’ll run a server on your mac pc and send your iMessages straight to the weMessage app on your phone. That’s it.
