Of course, Apple, it’s not about money at all. Craig Federighi explains his old words about iMessage on Android

Apple Senior Vice President Craig Federighi gave a new interview in which he explained his long-standing claim that iMessage can’t be released on Android.

Of course, Apple, it's not about money at all.  Craig Federighi explains his old words about iMessage on Android

Recall that back in 2013, he wrote an email to Eddie Cue, where he said the following: “I am concerned that iMessage on Android will simply remove the barrier for iPhone families to give their children Android phones.”

That is, Federighi believed that if iMessage was released on Android, then iPhone owners with children would buy Android smartphones for their children.

Now Federighi explained that his position.

The conversation with Eddie was that if we’re going to go into the market and go down the path of building an app, we need to be in the process in a way that makes a difference. So that we can have many clients so that we can deliver a great experience.

So, if we just released an app that didn’t reach critical mass on other platforms, it would hold us back from innovating in all the ways we want to bring iMessage to our customers.

Simply put, Federighi now says that at one time such a decision was made simply for reasons of the practicality of wasting resources, and not fear of strengthening a competing platform.
