Nothing makes a bold move in the ongoing Android vs. iMessage debate by introducing a feature in its Nothing Chats app.

Nothing Chats

The app enables Android users to send messages to iOS users with Apple’s distinctive blue bubbles; initially available in the US, Canada, UK, and EU for Nothing Phone (2) users.

The app brings iMessage functionality to Android users, including the iconic green bubble messaging, comprehensive support for group chats, live typing indicators, media sharing, and voice notes.

The Nothing Chats app, developed in collaboration with Sunbird, is currently in its Beta phase, promising additional features and improvements in the future.

An early hands-on reveals that certain functionalities, like message editing, may be absent or not fully functional.

Sunbird assures users of end-to-end encryption, emphasizing privacy. However, to use the app, users need to log in with an existing Apple ID username or create a new Apple account.

Starting from November 17, Nothing Chats will be available exclusively on the Google Play Store for Nothing Phone (2) users. 

Nothing CEO Carl Pei acknowledges that Nothing Chats won’t revolutionize messaging but sees it as a conversation starter about perceived anti-competitive practices.

Nothing becomes the first mobile company to bridge the gap between Android and iOS users with the launch of Nothing Chats, enables direct messaging between phone users via blue bubbles.
