iMessage is a closed messaging system meant solely for Apple products – iPhones, Macs, Apple watches and iPads.
The clever system allows users to send messages between Apple products for free.
The iconic blue text bubbles allow Apple users to send end-to-end encrypted texts, GIFs, images and stickers instantly.
Messages to and from Android users – or if you are not connected to the internet or have data – will appear as green bubbles.
You can even put together a group chat – and up until now Android users could not join the party.
The new app weMessage works surprisingly well with Android phones – and will allow green-bubble users to join their friends.
The Google Play store is full to the brim with apps claiming to allow Android users to send iMessages.
Unfortunately, many of these are fake apps designed to get ahold of your details.
Other apps exploits in the coding iMessages use – which Apple is not too happy about.
WeMessage relies on a different method to link you to the iMessage network – having an Apple Mac.
The brilliant invention was created by 16-year-old developer Roman Scott.
The genius created the app because he recognised a need for Android users to be able to iMessage.
He explained: “WeMessage was created to serve the many Android users who are left out of the iMessage ecosystem.”
It allows you to access and take advantage of many great iMessage features.
WeMessage can handle group chats, images, videos, animation effects and you can even enable Read Receipts.
The secure app is also encrypted – so you don’t need to worry about your private conversations being leaked.
The app will start from scratch – and will not transfer your old iMessages from your Mac.
