According to some “rumors” of the past few days, reported by Economic Times:
Google would be working to create a new app for the exchange of messages (for smartphones phones – ed) and challenge WhatsApp.
Google, in early 2014, offered 10 billion dollars to buy WhatsApp,
but the offer of Fecebook (19 billion dollars) it meets the demands of WhatsApp,
and thus Fecebook bought WhatsApp, the app on the phone messages.
Google, remained “dry mouth”, he created a series of services in “WhatsApp style”:
Hangouts app to send and receive messages, photos, and more, and make video calls and free voice.
In 2015 it is expected the anti-WhatsApp launch by Google, in India and other emerging countries.
It will be the “Google Messenger”?
India (815 million mobile users), it is, after China, the world’s second largest market for mobile phones.
It recently purchased MessageMe
Also this app a message, that in just two months has collected 5 million users.
The startup MessageMe, analysts should have a value of about 12 million.
And more and Yahoo a few months ago, in May 2014, he bought Blink, other rival Snapchat app (the app with messages, photos, videos that will self-destroy / delete, after a few seconds – ed).
So all that is chat mobile (for smartphones phones – ed) is the object of desire by the current big players: Google, Facebook, Yahoo !.
