Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has said that the company and operating system are open to "welcome" Apple's iMessage as an application in the new Windows 11, released earlier today, June 24.
It would benefit many users, especially as Microsoft has allowed the free upgrade from Windows 10 to 11, provided that they own the software.
It is not a rare sight anymore, for Big Tech companies to work with each other or have ties to one another, despite competing in the market, known as a friendly rivalry. It was known that Apple brought FaceTime to Android, among other apps, which was a significant move for the Cupertino giant.
Microsoft CEO Wants Apple to Bring iMessage to Windows 11
The recently appointed chair and CEO of Microsoft, Satya Nadella, is willing to welcome Apple's iMessage onto its platform. It is with the hopes to connect more users who have an Apple account, iPad, or iPhone, but are Windows users in terms of a laptop, desktop, or PC in general.
According to the Wall Street Journal's interview with Nadella, the next generation of Windows has arrived with the eleventh version of the said operating system, ushering in a new era for them. In this interview, the CEO regarded that part of this new generation is welcoming different third-party applications, with its highlight focused mostly on Apple's iMessage.
Android apps known to be "APKs" or Android application packages, are now available to be used in the new OS and come with Windows 11.
The Windows showcase event welcomes the world, and it brought the highly speculated Windows 11, which got the name that precedes that of Windows 10 and did not have any special names to it. What is most iconic with the new OS is that it features more free or open Windows than ever, especially as it opened up a lot of doors for users.
What Microsoft and Windows have planned for its users is truly an upgrade from the previous version it had, especially as it optimized more on the looks and feels that it brings to the public, based on the initial looks. Microsoft has outdone itself by giving the OS a new life and certainly steps away from the shadow of Windows 10.
Windows 11 Upgrade: Free for Windows 10
According to Microsoft, Windows 11 is here, and it would not only be intended for new users or new computer buyers, especially as it would allow a free upgrade for current Windows 10 users.
Purchasing a Windows-enabled laptop or buying the legitimate disc itself gives one a complete and legal version of Windows, also entitling one to future updates. Check out the website or an article we have for system requirements down below, for eligibility to upgrade.
