Wait...What is Android Messages?
Well, there is this beloved thing that iPhone owners have had for quite a while and it's called iMessage. What's so special about it? It's a built in text messaging app that allows you do so many things while texting people. From playing games, sending money, sending animated balloons, and expressing yourself in many other animated ways, what's not to love about iMessage. Well, there is one thing. It's not available for Android smartphone owners. It's restricted to Apple devices.

Android Messages is to be just like iMessage but for all of the Android phones out there. Providing a better texting experience for everyone who owns an Android phone wither it is from Samsung, LG, Motorola, HTC, or Google. Not only will it have the same features as iMessage, but it will gain even more because businesses and carriers will be able to contribute to it's success. Providing flight tickets as well as being able to book your flight all within the app.
Most importantly, what most people care about is read receipts, games, stickers, GIFs, and emojis, because despite global belief, that's mainly what the western hemisphere truly care about. 😜Those will all be there. Google is advancing texting technology as a whole to support these sort of features for over 1 billion (yes, with a "B") Android phones in the world. Android messages is changing to fully compete with iMessage and it's finally about time. I have friends that are held hostage with having an iPhone strictly because they won't have an iMessage alternative once they make the switch. So far I've been using Android Messages as my primary text messaging app and though these features aren't available yet, Google says they will be available in the coming months. For now, as we hold our breathe, take a look at the short Android Messages ad below.
