Google has appealed to the EU to demand that iMessage become the main communication platform for all phones.

Currently, only Apple users can communicate via iMessage, but when owners of smartphones with Google’s Android software join the chat, messages become regular SMS. Also, better photo and video quality is not available for android users.

The letter to the EU was also signed by the CEOs of Vodafone, Deutsche Telekom, Telefónica and Orange.

Apple responded to the letter and noted that the extensive functionality of iMessage already goes beyond just their users and does not violate the new EU legislation.
