Android Users Can Now Enjoy iMessage Features with Sunbird Messaging App
If you’re an Android user who is tired of being insulted in a group chat by iPhone users because your presence causes the text bubbles to turn green and downgrades the service from iMessage to SMS, pay attention to this. When Android users chatting via RCS (Rich Communication Service) allow an iPhone user to join the group, the same thing happens and the service is downgraded from RCS to SMS. Character limits return, image and video quality drops, read receipts and typing indicators are disabled.
The Solution: Sunbird Messaging App
The only difference between iMessage and RCS is that Android users don’t make a big stink when an iPhone user interrupts an RCS chat session. But it soon won’t matter anyway when the Sunbird Messaging app launches. Currently in Alpha testing, Sunbird is a universal messaging app that will allow Android users to pass themselves off as iOS users during a group chat. There will be no green bubbles in sight and all iMessage features will be available to Android users with the app installed.
