Chat is Google’s industry-backed answer to Apple iMessage

Google's communication services are a mess, and that's describing it nicely. It has made multiple attempts, some of which continue to exist independently, to offer the best messaging platform ever. Almost all of those have failed miserably. Why can't Google just make a straight out iMessage clone? Well, it could but it's choosing not to do so.

Google seems to be grooming Chrome OS to accommodate not just Android but other OS as well. Not to mention Fuchsia OS that's still in incubation. Bucking that trend, however, is Apple, whose macOS and iOS remain separate and largely independent. And that's going to stay that way as far as CEO Tim Cook is concerned, because, according to him, it is not what users want.
