Android and iPhone users can live in perfect harmony thanks to a new app for Android operating systems. It's about time!


weMessage is a new app that allows Android users to send iMessages without the annoying green bubbles that always differentiate Android users, like a Google phone or Samsung phone,  from iPhone users. One of the most important things to note about weMessage, however, is that it only works if the Android user also has a Mac computer. But don't let that spoil the fun for you. weMessage is new, so it's possible it will become available to PC's in the future as it develops a following.

Some features of the app include:

Group Chats: Supports direct and group messaging, as well as creating, renaming, or adding and removing people from group chats.

Read receipts: Supports iMessage effects like fireworks, invisible ink, and confetti. It also supports read receipts, so you will know when a message has been delivered or read.

Customize: You can customize contact names, contact pictures, and even set a group chat icon if you'd like! You can also use Contact Sync, a feature that imports the contacts on your Mac to your app.

Games: Includes a built-in video player and web browser, notifications, contact blocking, big emoji messages, and more!


So the next important question is: How do you use it to send iMessages with an Android phone? Luckily, weMessage has a very helpful how-to guide.

Still confused? Elite Daily broke it down into step-by-step instructions. To successfully download weMessage, you'll need to:

1. Install the weMessage software on your computer which requires installing the Java SE Development Kit (JDK).  

2. Customize your System Preferences to give the software Terminal rights, by moving Terminal to Accessibility.

Just go to System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Accessibility. When you're in Accessibility, click on the lock icon and enter your password. Next, select the "+" sign and locate your Terminal app. Select "open," and it should be added to your Accessibility list.

3. Download weServer. Open the ZIP file and click on the “run.command” file to launch the program. Then enter your iMessage email (the one connected to your official iMessage account). It's important to note that weServer suggests creating a new password for security. In order to use weMessage on your Android, both your Android and your Mac must be operating on the same Wi-Fi network. Better to be safe than sorry.

4. Now you can install weMessage on your Android device. You will need to have your Mac’s IP address, as well as the login credentials you just used on your computer. All of your contacts should sync with the app immediately so you should be able to start messaging immediately.


Sounds simple enough! However, just keep in mind that weMessage is a closed-source application, which means that there is no way to tell if there's something more going on than what the company claims. Be aware that there is a risk of keylogging or accessing your credentials. 

With all that being said, this is an awesome way for Android and iPhone users to communicate with each other.
