    So we accept that one company specially like Meta shouldn’t have whole access of one app for default messaging app but we have issue with Apple coz they have their own app. πŸ˜‚ And Apple always shouting about privacy on their product must move their data to competitor server πŸ˜‚ Like Apple must loose anyhow as Mr Google lover MKBHD P.S- I use iMessage very less my preferred is Whatsapp and Telegram but really hate to see people want to take everything from Apple but love to see others keeping their main features πŸ˜‚

    Good video, funny the see how narrow minded Apple is to consider the USA as their deciding factor. I am from Aruba and for a short amount of time Apple has us put down as a country but they as many other do not know what to do with us. They place us as a Latin region country but we belong to the Dutch kingdom. The app store from Holland does not work here

    Only Americans can feel the social pressure to have blue bubbles - and not just because of the iPhone's market penetration. Talk about a messed-up culture...

  • Ramiro Tarrico VillafaΓ±e

    This reminds me of Blackberry messenger, at some point I was the odd one in my group of friends where most had BB and I was rocking one of the first gen windows phones. Eventually, BB popularity started to go away and folks changed to other phones and althuogh at the end BB messenger became multiplatform it was too late for them. This will never happen with Apple, not in the forseable future at least. But hey... there's a chance :)

    Big point is we in Switzerland πŸ‡¨πŸ‡­, Germany πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ and Austria πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ή are not using the Messenger because most of the people use Whatsapp. Everyone who has a Ios or an Android phon I know uses Whatsapp. I only know one person of my friends who uses the Messenger..

WhatsApp and Viber were "default" apps in Russia (WhatsApp was default on the West and Viber was default on the East). Now Telegram are squeezing them both from the market. I don't have any messengers except Telegram now.

    I don't care what Apple does, at least I could use my phone as a tablet. Set that dp to 600 and your good to go! But no real talk I'm never going to get an iPhone because they are not as customizable as Android. I don't want the apple experience I want a self curated experience.

  • THOMAS THE TANK ENGINE

    I got my first iPhone this year with the 13pro Max. The main reason is I wanted to experience a modern iPhone so that when I say it's trash I want to know what I'm talking about. But a small thought in my head was also about being a blue bubble. It's something subconscious that I felt I needed. But then I realized that if my friends only let me in a group chat because I have an iPhone then I shouldn't have those friends to begin with. I now have less friends...and I'm ok with that
