iMessage on Android: AirMessage will finally make it possible… if you have a Mac!

Android texting pales in comparison to iMessages, which has existed on iPhone, iPad, Mac and iPod since 2011. Google wants to change things up by adopting the RCS protocol, which will eventually completely replace SMS and eventually offer feature-rich ones like its Apple counterpart. But soon, it will be possible for everyone to enjoy iMessage, even on Android 6.0+ smartphones. The only condition, and not least, would be to have a mac running macOS 10.11+.

iMessage is coming on Android if you have a Mac!

An application in development called AirMessage will indeed soon make it possible to use iMessage… using your Mac as a server. The server part (installed on your Mac) makes it possible to send messages directly to and from the client application installed on your Android smartphone. Thus, AirMessage provides access to practically all functions of iMessage: sending/receiving messages, attachments, visual effects, reactions, etc.

Of course there are limitations: for example, you can only use the app when the mac is on, and some features are only available in one direction (read-only). The app is currently under development, but the beta version is open for those who want to try it. Just send an e-mail to Hello. also air message point in topic with org AirMessage Beta Test.

You will need to provide them with your name, Google+ login or email address in the body of the message. The developers state that this app is intended to be distributed free of charge on the Google Play Store when it becomes available.
