has recently unveiled its latest operating system, iOS 17, during their annual event, Worldwide Developers Conference (WWD) in 2023.

As they will worsen the experience of chatting with iPhone users.

iOS 17 iMessage Changes Worsen the Experience for Android Users


Gizchina News of the week

According to XDA-Developers, the changes made to iMessage were aimed at improving the experience of iPhone users when they are in group chats with other users, including those who use Android. With the new update, iPhone users can now edit messages, reply to threads, and send photos at maximum quality, even when there are Android users within the group. However, Android users will not be able to enjoy these new features.

Previously, these features were only available in individual conversations or groups formed exclusively by iMessage users. Unfortunately, Android users will not be able to see the edited messages. And replies to message threads will not appear sorted correctly if they participate in a group chat with iMessage users. Even images and videos sent through the group chat will lose quality when they reach the Android device.

It is uncertain if these changes will remain in the final version of iOS 17. It will be official in September. If so, it is not good news for Android users, who will have more reason than ever to back in its campaign to push Apple to incorporate support for the RCS messaging protocol in iMessage.

In conclusion, the changes made to iMessage in iOS 17 may improve the experience of iPhone users. But it comes at the expense of Android users. It remains to see if Apple will address this issue and provide a better experience for Android users in the future.
