One of the crazier Apple rumors that hit the internet in the weeks leading to WWDC said that Apple will unveil an iMessage for Android application at the show. iMessage is one of Apple’s best iOS apps, an SMS/messaging client that even Android fans would want to use on their devices.
During the keynote, Apple proved it’s interested in upping its iMessage game, as the chat app received the biggest update in years. The new features make iMessage an even better alternative to Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp, but an Android version of the app was never announced.
Now we know why that happened, and we get the feeling Apple might never go forward with iMessage for Android plans.
