The Sunbird Messaging App: Bringing iMessage Features to Android
If you’re an Android user who’s had to endure the scorn of iPhone users because of the green text bubbles caused by SMS messages in group chats, you’ll be pleased to know that the Sunbird Messaging app is on the horizon. The app is currently in Alpha testing and will provide Android users with iMessage features during group chats.
The Downside of Chatting via RCS
When Android users communicate through RCS, the service is downgraded to SMS if an iPhone user joins the chat. This means that typing indicators, read receipts, image and video quality all drop, and chat character limits are imposed. This means that Android users don’t have access to all the features that their iPhone users are used to when chatting through iMessage.
