A newly launched Android app called ‘weMessage‘ allows those craving for iMessage to receive it on their Android phones or tablets with only one requirement for it to work, i.e., Mac.
How does it work?
For weMessage to work, it requires a weServer app to be installed on a Mac, which then collects the iMessages delivered to the Mac and forwards it to the weMessages app on your Android device. In short, weServer serves as a portal between a Mac and Android device using Accessibility of Apple’s Messaging app for the Mac. No reverse engineering was used for the creation of weMessage thus its 100% legal to use.
weMessage provides all iMessage features like group chats, easy customization, attachments, notifications, read receipts, Do Not Disturb, content blocking, built-in video player, big emoji message and more, with notifications enabled by sending messages to the Google Firebase platform. So let’s see how you can use iMessage on Android using weMessage app:
Note: The two major requirements for weMessage to work are, a macOS computer and an active iMessage account.
Step #1. Head over to Google Play Store.
Step #2. Download the weMessage app on your Android device
Step #3. Download the weServer app on your Mac. Note that, this app is not available on Apple’s official Mac App Store, so you will have to modify your Security & Privacy settings to install this app on your Mac.
Step #4. Open weServer and follow the instructions to set it up.
Step #5. Open the weMessage app on your Android device.
Step #6. Sign in using IP Address, email, and password and you are done. The weServer app will turn your Mac into a server to relay iMessages to the weMessage Android app.
Many apps and methods of forwarding iMessages to Android devices have popped up in the past but were shut down by Apple. So far, this App appears to be a great solution by routing iMessages to an Android device. Moreover, iMessages sent and received through weMessage are encrypted and decrypted using AES encryption. So it’s secured and private. The chances are that the Apple will require the developer to shutter the app, and so weMessage may soon be removed from the Google Play Store, but in the meantime, Android users who also have a Mac and want to experiment with iMessage can go for it.
