iMessage for Android?
If you are waiting for iMessage for Android, then we have some good news for you. According to the latest rumor, mockups of iMessage for Android have been circulating around the company, suggesting a range of different potential UI styles.

These apparently range from an iOS Messages style to a pure material design look and feel. Of course, that’s far from a confirmation that Apple actually has any plans to bring iMessage to Android anytime soon, but it seems that the idea is still being mulled over at the company.

While taking a dig to the concept, we found that Android version of iMessage still doesn't make sense - Apple makes the vast majority of its money when people buy its products. iMessage is a strong reason to continue buying those products. There are also security implications if iMessage were to run on Android, given that the system uses Apple hardware to help its encryption.

As a "senior executive" told the Verge earlier this year:

When I asked a senior Apple executive why iMessage wasn't being expanded to other platforms, he gave two answers. First, he said, Apple considers its own user base of 1 billion active devices to provide a large enough data set for any possible AI learning the company is working on. And, second, having a superior messaging platform that only worked on Apple devices would help sales of those devices - the company's classic (and successful) rationale for years.

So, if you are fans of iMessage like me, then you will understand that, if Apple will launch iMessage for Android it might leave other competitors far behind.
