 iMessage on Windows 10.

Apple’s iMessage app is one of my favorite app of all time. it only works on iPhone, Apple watch, iMac and iPad. but it will come on windows 10 it would be amazing! So… you don’t have to pick up your phone if you’re using Windows 10 and then you can directly message anyone with iMessage on Windows. You get a rich chat app that’s fully encrypted and works over the internet as long as you talking to other iOS users. Moreover, Continuity lets you send regular SMS messages from Macs. No other company has an iMessage equivalent of its own, although Google is trying to build one right now (though it lacks end-to-end encryption, which is a big turn-off). Microsoft, which revealed earlier this week at Build 2018 that it wants to bridge the gap between mobile phones and Windows 10 PCs with new apps, said that it also wants to work with Apple on creating an iMessages app for Windows. Apple has already released iTunes to Windows 10 which I use as well.  Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore and Shilpa Ranganathan told The Verge that Microsoft is open to working with Apple.  Ranganathan said. “I want to do this in a supported way with a respect for the ecosystem we’re building on and at the same time make it a delightful experience. Messages is one where we’re not currently where we need to be compared to Android, but we need to work with Apple.”

It’s a promising feature, but in an interview with The Verge, Shilpa Ranganathan from Microsoft admits that there have been issues getting the app to work on iOS devices, compared to Android phones, stating that: “Apple does make it a harder for messages, but we’re very willing to work with Apple.” it’ll be amazing if Microsoft do this!

thanks for reading! I hope you’ll be excited for this! comment down your thoughts about iMessage coming on Windows 10.
