Siri’s next stop could be iMessage, and it would be awesome

iOS Siri Commands In iMessage

Apple was the first company to integrate a voice-controlled virtual assistant into a smartphone’s operating system, although its main competitors such as Google, Amazon and Microsoft have since come up with similar solutions. Apple hasn’t stopped evolving Siri, however. In fact, a new discovery reveals that Apple is interested in bringing Siri to one of its best mobile products, iMessage, and further increasing the assistant’s capabilities.

New rumors show Apple is (or at least, was) considering iMessage for Android

iMessage on Android
For as long as iMessage has existed, smartphone owners have speculated about the possibility of Apple bringing its messaging service to Android. Although there have been hints and rumors in the past, the release of Apple Music on Android late last year reignited conversations about iMessage being ported over as well. Nearly a year later, the blogosphere has been relatively quiet, but a new report from John Gruber of Daring Fireball claims that Apple has indeed been considering expanding the reach of iMessage beyond the iOS platform.

So long, Phoneys! Apple is about to ban everyone’s favorite iOS 10 stickers app

iOS 10 Stickers

Apple, as opposed to Google, just doesn’t know how to kick back and relax sometimes. After a prank app called Phoneys skyrocketed to the top of the iMessage App Store charts, Apple informed the developer of the app, Adam Howell, that the app will be removed  in a week if he doesn’t implement some design tweaks that would fundamentally alter the appeal and overall utility of the app.

For those unfamiliar, Phoneys is a fun iMessage app that let users send stickers designed to look exactly like the blue iMessage bubbles iOS users are accustomed to. The end result is that users can send their friends messages and make it seem as if they were the ones who sent it.

Researchers can hack Apple’s iMessages, but you’re already safe

Apple iMessage Encryption Issues
In mid-March, during the FBI vs. Apple scandal surrounding the encrypted San Bernardino iPhone, a report revealed that security researchers from Johns Hopkins University were able to access photos and videos in iMessage conversations, even though they were encrypted. The same university came up with a different attack against the same iMessage, one that allowed them to access content that should be protected by the strong encryption Apple advocates. The good news is the security holes have been patched already. You just have to run the latest versions of iOS and OS X. However, the researchers recommend that Apple should replace its iMessage encryption with one that eliminates potential weaknesses.

Apple exec explains why the company has not brought iMessage to Android

Prior to WWDC, a report emerged claiming that Apple would at long last unveil iMessage for Android. Seeing how Apple had made its streaming music service available on Android, many found this report to be somewhat plausible. As you’re probably aware of by now, however, iMessage for Android was nowhere to be found at WWDC this week. Now, we’ve gotten a little bit of insight into Apple’s reasoning for not bringing its messaging service to Google’s smartphone platform…

Because the Words In That iMessage Just Weren’t Good Enough

Weren’t you just saying that iMessage would be so much better if it was less about words and more... well, more like Snapchat? No? Well, too bad.

Report claims iMessage for Android to be announced at WWDC 2016

According to a report from MacDailyNews, Apple will announce that iMessage is coming to Android at Monday’s upcoming WWDC 2016 keynote.

Such an announcement, which MacDailyNews claims to have obtained from “a source familiar with the company’s thinking,” would go a long way towards making it easier for users to shift between the two competing platforms. But what would be Apple’s motivation for doing this?
