Blue bubble message: Nothing Android Flagship now supports iMessage with new chats App
Delhi : The iMessage messaging feature for its Android flagship phone, the Nothing Phone (2), will soon be supported by the Nothing Chats software, which is a recent announcement from British consumer electronics manufacturer Nothing. The software was created in collaboration with Sunbird, which also offers an app that is compatible with iMessage. "Nothing is the first mobile startup to address one of the main issues that users of iOS and Android are frustrated with. Nothing stated on its website that "Blue bubbles let you message other phone users directly from your Nothing phone using Nothing Chats, powered by Sunbird."
The app will only be available for download through the Play Store on November 17 in the US, the UK, and the EU. The business has acknowledged that the software is currently in the testing stage. In the upcoming months, it is anticipated to appear on other Nothing devices and in other countries, including India. In a recent letter to the European Commission, Google and other European telecom firms requested that the iMessage service be classified as a "core platform service" for the purposes of the EU's recently passed Digital Markets Act (DMA). Google has been critical of Apple on many occasions for not implementing RCS, which enables cross-platform messaging functionality. At the moment, iMessage can only be used within the Apple ecosystem; it cannot be used to share voice notes, high-resolution media, or other types of content with other platforms.
In addition to iMessage capabilities like voice notes, full-resolution media sharing, and live type indications, the Nothing conversations app will now support RCS messaging. Although the firm has said that read receipts, message responses, and answers will not be accessible at launch, they will be in the upcoming months.
There was no mention of requiring users to sign in with their Apple IDs in order to set up the chat app using iMessage. It further stated that for privacy, the conversations will be end-to-end encrypted.
