Apple Decided To Deactivate New iMessage App For Android

Apple has decided to deactivate the iMessage app for Android phones, which was previously compatible. iMessage, known for its distinctive blue bubbles, has remained exclusive to Apple’s ecosystem to prioritize user privacy. Recently, a new app called Beeper Mini was introduced, aiming to provide Android users with the best version of the iMessage app.

The company claimed it was able to intercept the original iMessage service from Apple to push messages on Android, coaxing Apple into thinking the message was coming from an iOS device. Many people suspected that Apple would eventually act on this service shutdown on Android. Apple has reportedly blocked the link that allowed Beeper Mini to divert its messages signal to Android for the iMessage app.

The company was quoted in a report by the Vrge, explaining the reasons for this decision. “We took steps to protect our users by blocking techniques that exploit fake credentials to gain access to iMessage. These techniques posed a significant risk to user security and privacy, including the potential for metadata exposure and enabling unwanted messages, spam, and phishing attacks. We will continue to make updates in the future to protect our users.

Beeper Mini got everyone excited about using iMessage app on Android, and more importantly, allowing them to do that in a secure, encrypted way. However, these new developments suggest Apple is not going to sit back and let companies misuse its servers to give products cross-platform integration. The makers of Beeper Mini have set up a subscription service, which means the iMessage for Android is not free and Apple blocking its network seems justified.
