Google Might Working on a New App to Rival iMessage

The application package for next version of Android Messages suggests that Google might be working on introducing a web version in coming days that will allow users to send text messages via computer. If the application is released, then it is likely to incorporate similar security option used by other messaging platforms such as WhatsApp which requires users to scan a QR code to pair their phones and PC.

While it is too early to predict anything, it seems that the search engine giant is set to adopt Rich Communication Services which is aimed at replacing text messages with more multifunctional messaging system. Earlier last year, Google signed a new partnership with Telenor to launch the RCS messaging services to several Asian and European countries.

While the new platform will debut sometime later this year, latest details suggest that Google might allow Android users to perform similar tasks. In addition to messaging, the upcoming app will also allow Android users to send payments to their contacts using the text conversation. However, as it stands we might have to wait couple of more weeks to get any official confirmation from Google.
