@Casey I’m in Europe and have the opposite problem. I’d love my friends to use iMessage instead of crappy WhatsApp, that still can’t work on devices other than phones. Other apps solve this problem, but most people won’t install them. WA is the same kind of monopoly here as IM in the US

@Casey This is a US only problem which can be easily be fixed by installing the app your friend is on. In India everyone is on WhatsApp, even iPhone users. Telegram is pretty the much the best in terms of features. iMessage simply lacks features that people in India need.

@ZoneOnePlaya @Casey Nope and I don't blame them because group MMS messages suck. Group RCS and group iMessage conversations are great. The whole cross platform experience breaks down because Apple refuses to adopt the new open standard for high quality messaging.

FaceTime will be a problem. Looking at the #Pixel6Pro , I’d say it’s a small price to pay @madebygoogle

@_Bethesdad @MattSmitty_ @Casey This is an issue on Apple's end actually, as they refuse to support RCS. RCS is a replacement for the outdated SMS with every feature that iMessage has.

@AbrahamJSB @justchilliando @iupdate Its the default messaging app on Android, harnessing RCS.
The benefit? Apple could integrate RCS into iMessage no problem and we'd finally have a worldwide messaging solution, but Apple doesn't want to do that as it will be one less reason to stay on Apple's ecosystem.

@Casey Tbh don't leave Apple if iMessage and Facetime is that important to you.
That's kind of the issue with Apple having +50% of market share in the US (and ~90% of teenagers) and alienating the Android folks. I try not to get too attached for this reason but I don't blame ya if u do

@iJonniM @SkylledDev FB Messenger is really good but I think people have lost faith in Facebook. Unfortunately Whatsapp is also a part of them & we see the rise of Telegram & Signal. But again, fragmentation. The biggest issue why there is no iMessage alternative. Spoilt for choice.

Whether you want to use Android or iOS is a personal choice that comes down to a functionality vs ecosystem preference. But if you're one of those people who refuses to use any other messaging app besides iMessage, just know you're part of the problem

@MikeIsaac @PatrickMcGee_ I would say that’s part court case and part sniping at Apple. iCloud backups - including your iMessages! - are still not E2E, and then the CSAM client side scanning has compounded the issue further. I think WhatsApp has come out publicly saying they won’t do client side scans.
