Pebble founder launches Beeper, a universal chat app that rolls 15 top services into one – TechSpot

Its worth keeping in mind that Beeper is a membership service that commands $10 per month, which partially explains how they might afford to send out old iPhones to utilize as a bridge.

Interested celebrations can register their interest by completing a form over on Beepers website. No word yet on when the service will exit the invite phase.

Obviously, Migicovsky isnt kidding about sending out users jailbroken iPhones, either.

Wait, iMessage on Android and Windows? According to Migicovsky, its possible however was difficult to determine.

With Beeper, you get a combined inbox for WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, iMessage, Twitter, Slack, Discord, Signal and Instagram, simply to name a few. The complete list of supported networks is available over on Beepers website, and the company tells us that they plan to include new chat networks every few weeks.

Migicovsky said on Twitter that he has actually been using it as his default chat client for the last two years, “and there is NO going back.”

Per Beepers FAQ, there are 2 methods to permit Android, Windows and Linux users to use iMessage.

” We send each user a Jailbroken iPhone with the Beeper app set up which bridges to iMessage, or if they have a Mac that is always linked to the web, they can set up the Beeper Mac app which functions as a bridge.”

Yes! That is EXACTLY what were doing. I have 50 iPhone 4s sitting here at my desk.
