For a long time we have while waiting for Apple to develop iMessage to competing devices so that it can be positioned as a very good alternative to other applications such as WhatsApp or Telegram. However, the company is not for the job at the moment. But now a new app has appeared that promises bring iMessage to Android and Windows, much more.
The app is called Beeper, it is developed by former Pebble CEO Eric Migicovsky and combines 15 different chat platforms into one app with one inbox. And best of all is that too offers iMessage on Android and Windows
Bringing iMessage to Android or Windows is extremely difficult, and that’s why this app must have handled itself in surprising ways. In addition to offer iMessage supportYou can also read and reply to your normal WhatsApp, Signal, Telegram, Slack, Twitter, Skype, Hangouts, Discord, Instagram, Facebook Messenger and SMS messages.
To offer iMessage, they offer you a jailbroken iPhone!
If you don’t have an Apple device, such as an iPhone or Mac, you cannot use iMessage. For this reason, Beeper needs a few tricks to be able to offer Apple messaging service on Android or Windows
If you’re a user who owns a Mac, it’s easy, since you can use your Mac as a bridge as long as it’s on and connected to the internet. However, if you don’t have an Apple device, the company offers you an old jailbroken iPhone and the Beeper application installed to be able to use iMessage on any other device.
And yes, iMessage even works on Android, Windows and Linux using a trick 🙂

The trick of this app is that works as a bridge between all these applications. Messages are connected to the app using Matrix, an open source federated messaging protocol that acts as a bridge for each email client.
It is certainly a very neat solution for anyone who wants to use iMessage but does not have Apple devices. The application which integrates 15 messaging services is priced at $ 10 per month and is available at macOS, Windows, Linux, iOS and Android, you will be able to reply to all the messages that reach you from one place.
