Tech giant Apple is planning to launch its secured end-to-end messaging facility, iMesssage in Android platform. Reportedly iMessage App would be launched in Android by Apple at WWDC next week. Apple by launching the App could target the Android users for opting for an Apple phone in the future. However Blackberry has also launched its BBM App but failed to adopt figures.
At present, WhatsApp is one of the most popular communication medium on the messaging platform. Billions of people around the world have adapted to WhatsApp, which is easy to use, completely free, secure and available for all smartphone platforms. However, things are looking a little dicey for the Facebook Inc-owned WhatsApp messenger ahead. A new report that is lurking around the smartphone market mentions that Apple is targeting WhatsApp by planning the release of iMessage for Android Smartphones. If true, iMessage could change the way people communicate in future.
iMessage is one of the most secure voice and video chatting application that is deeply integrated into the Apple ecosystem. Every iPhone and iPad user can use the messaging platform to communicate and it has been there since a long time. It is secure, fast and very easy to use.
By allowing iMessage to Android users, Apple could target the Android platform and grow higher in the services industry, thus making better profits. However, if they do so, they could also push off much of Android users who could opt for an iPhone in future. However, by offering high encryption (End-to-End), similar to WhatsApp and Telegram, iMessage could emerge a topper and offer secure and guaranteed private messaging, where the recent FBI-Apple case stands as a witness.
