Top 5 iMessage Alternatives for Android
#1. Facebook Messenger
The all new cool Facebook Messenger has almost everything which iMessage can offer. It has voice and video calling, voice messaging etc. Facebook Messenger has its own exclusive app store from where you can download various sticker packs and apps like Bitmoji, QuizChat, GIF keyboard etc. If you are living in the US you can even send payments. This app is accessible on Android phones as well so it can be used as iMessage. What’s more, it can be used as SMS app for both Windows and Mac.
This app is kind of a look-alike of WhatsApp and probably that is why it has not got its due. This app can match certain features of iMessage but not all. So if you are fine with only stickers and cool bots then Telegram is the alternative app for iMessage for you. The app can be synced with cloud and you can use it simultaneously on your smartphone as well as on your PC. The app also has one cool gaming platform, so that you can use the app to play some great games as well. So we can say that with certain limitations Telegram is good enough alternative to iMessage.
#3. Google Allo
The all new Google messenger app has created ripples when people came to know about its excellent features. Slowly it has lost its charm but still you can’t deny it as a great alternative to iMessage. Because it has plenty of cool features like Google Assistant, stickers, smart replies and also shouts or whisper message feature it is the nearest alternative for iMessage. These are the only few features we have mentioned here. Google Allo’s games are really unique and its Google Assistant has gained popularity within no time.
Pushbullet is certainly not the app which can match features of iMessage but still we have included it in our list. The reason because Pushbullet is on this list is because it is having file sharing and notification mirroring capabilities. You can actually receive and send text (SMS) messages from Windows or Mac. It also supports most of the other chat apps, Facebook, Twitter or even Gmail. If you are using Chrome, Firefox, and Safari it also has an extension which you can use it to get even more options. Pushbullet allows you to send 100 SMS each so if you want more it’s paid version is also available.
WhatsApp is one of the most popular chat apps and it certainly can be an alternative to iMessages. The app also has a desktop client but that is only a mirror image and not worth much. The app has sharing, free calls, some cool smiles and now we have even heard that WhatsApp is soon going to launch the video calling feature so it will be a total messaging solution. You can now even send GIFs and can do plenty of things on WhatsApp so why can’t this popular chat app become a great alternative?
