VisualSeed said:While it is certainly possible It really doesn't make a lot of sense if iMessage was a selling point of iOS/MacOS and the hardware to run it. Unlike Apple Music, supporting iMessage on Android earns Apple no money and it is just another costly service to support. On the other hand, if Apple is going to do something big and try to get ahead of Google and Facebook and their respective messengers and bots then interoperability with Android will be required and the only way to ensure end to end encryption. Maybe Apple is going to announce some sort of new content sharing paradigm, like sharing a VR experience or Siri for home automation or a quasi social network and iMessage is a gateway to access and deliver it. iMessage on Android could be the trojan to also allow all kinds of iOS type service like AirDrop, Handoff, Live Photos FaceTime, etc...
