London-based tech company Nothing has launched its own messaging app called Nothing Chats. This app functions similar to iMessages on iPhones and is now available for Android users as well. CEO Carl Pei mentioned that they have created an app for Android users that works like iMessage on iPhones. Currently, the Nothing Chats app is available only to users of the company’s latest handset in North America, the EU, and other European regions. The app will be available to users starting this Friday, November 17.
Key features of Nothing Chats: In response to the popularity of Apple’s iMessage among Android users in the US, Nothing has developed an app that provides similar features. People often switch to iPhones because of the preference for using iMessage. Keeping this in mind, Nothing has created its own app that offers users features similar to iMessage. For those unfamiliar with iMessage, the app provides users with various features like single messages, group messages, read receipts, seen indicators, typing signs, voice notes, and more to enhance the user experience.
Nothing has incorporated these features into the Nothing Chats app. Some features have already been rolled out, while others are still in development and will be released in the coming days. The company plans to introduce features like read receipts and message reactions similar to iMessage.
Privacy in the app: Carl Pei emphasized that the company has prioritized user privacy, and all sent messages are stored on the device, not on servers. This ensures that user privacy is maintained, and all messages in Nothing Chats appear in blue, similar to iMessage on iPhones, eliminating the blue-green debate.
