iMessage is an instant messaging service developed for iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, iPod Touch, Mac that was launched in 2011. Offered by Apple, it runs on iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS. One can send texts, documents, photos, videos, contact information, and group messages on the Internet via iMessage. There has been a lot of discussion about it being similar to text messages, but both are pretty dissimilar to each other. Apart from the color demarcation (SMS appears in green bubble while iMessage appears in blue), the network also differs for both. While text messages are to be sent using cellular network, iMessage needs your Internet data or a WiFi connection. Android Messaging, Google’s offering, is a direct competitor of iMessage.
