Beeper’s innovative work in bringing blue text bubbles to Android was pivotal. Thanks to Beeper doing all the heavy lifting here, this opens the door to unique new product opportunities like SayItInPink.com and more.
Beeper is throwing in the towel in its fight to bring iMessage to Android — mostly.
Although it just announced yet another fix to let Android users send iMessages from its messaging apps, Beeper announced that it’s going to stop finding workarounds and instead focus on its long-term goal of building the best chat app on earth.
…open-sourcing its iMessage bridge, allowing users to inspect the code or build something with it. *Reference.
Blue text bubbles have become a defining signal as to one's social status, much in the same manner that luxury goods plays a significant role in the context of social hierarchy, which typically speaks to status, social class, and exclusivity.
When two iPhones communicate with one another, it comes in via blue bubbles, includes typing indicators and has since grown to include sharing media, games and even money.
Apple's messaging divide is affecting how people interact. Not only that, text communications between iPhone and Android devices become a subpar experience, with both users being downgraded to SMS, a much older texting protocol, losing features like in-line reactions, thread responses and text edits. Photos and videos also come in heavily compressed.
The fault of that out-of-date experience is often placed on Android users, although it's an experience of Apple's making. This blame can take the form of prejudgments about a person's income, personality and overall social status, which can sometimes lead to bullying and added pressures to switch.
As inconvenient as it is for iPhone users to have to deal with green bubbles in group chats, for Apple, exclusivity is part of the draw.
Messaging bubbles are like Prada bags or Air Jordans, except that mobile phones are critical tools for communication and productivity in our mobile-first world. *Reference.
The sentiment is clear. Amongst the teen and college-aged student demographic, blue text bubbles have become an enviable status symbol.
Green with envy?
The Wall Street Journal reported over the weekend American teens may be feeling just that while messaging friends and family in their social circle. Maybe you've felt it, too, texting blue bubbles back and forth and then, suddenly, green. Maybe you've said, "ugh, green," too.
That reaction is nothing out of the ordinary for many of the teens and college-aged students who spoke with the outlet.
iPhones come preloaded with Apple's iMessage app, which the company positions as the easiest way to share texts, photos, videos, animated emoji and more. Texting someone with an Android phone is allowed, sure, but very few of the iPhone-to-iPhone messaging features don't work with an Android device in the mix.
Not wanting to feel left out, young Americans have made iMessage and its blue texts a status symbol of sorts and helped drive Phone market share to an estimated 74 percent among people aged 18-24, according to the WSJ. *Reference.
