Microsoft To Introduce iMessage To Windows

The tech-giant Microsoft plans to bring iMessage to Windows 10 particularly, by partnering with Apple. Shilpa Ranganathan, general manager at Microsoft, officially told The Verge that the company is agreeing to work with Apple on integrating Windows 10 functionality to iMessage.

Last week, Microsoft unvieled it's “Your Phone app” at the BUILD conference. The company says the software will help link desktop and mobile platform, as well as allowing its customers synchronize content between their smartphone and desktop so as to easily view notifications, send texts and copy files from within Windows 10.

The issue of this Microsoft new software is that, it won't allow synchronization with iOS devices especially user’s messages.
According to Shilpa Ranganathan, general manager at Microsoft;

“We will actually have photos on iOS and notifications as well. Apple does make it a little harder for messages, but we’re very willing to work with Apple. I want to do this in a supported way with a respect for the ecosystem we’re building on and at the same time make it a delightful experience. Messages is what is keeping us from being where we need to be compared to Android, but we need to work with Apple.”

There's a lot we do with iMessage. iMessage supports stickers, mobile payment, third-party apps, games and many more features and all these are planning to be replicated over to windows, an immense acquirement of Apple's user experience.

The Your Phone app synchronizes content between your smartphone and your Windows PC using Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. The app will be unleashed to Windows insiders before rolling out to everyone in October when the Windows 10 is expecting its next major update.

Currently, the iMessage world is compatible with iPad, iPod touch, iPhone, Mac and Apple Watches. This is one of Apple’s biggest differentiators over Android.

Do you think Apple is really ready to work with Microsoft to share one of its biggest features outside its ecosystem?
