iMessage app for Android has seemingly already been killed by Apple

What you need to know

  • Just days after Beeper Mini was launched, it seems that Apple has pulled the plug. 
  • Beeper Mini users have reported being unable to send messages, with the company stating it’s “investigating reports.”
  • In a statement to TechCrunch, CEO Eric Migicovsky surmises that Apple was able to “cut off Beeper Mini’s ability to function.”

For the time being, it appears as though the dream of being able to use iMessage on Android with Beeper Mini is dead. Late Friday afternoon, reports of errors when trying to send messages via Beeper Mini began cropping up. This was followed up by a post on X corroborating that there were issues, as the official Beeper account stated it was “investigating reports.”

When asked by TechCrunch about whether “Apple found a way to cut off Beeper Mini’s ability to function,” Beeper CEO Eric Migicovsky stated, “Yes, all data indicates that.”
