Economic Times of India reports that Google is building a competitor for WhatsApp that should have a better chance at taking a piece of the market and revenge the failure of Hangouts on PC, tablet and smartphones. It appears that Google is working on an app that combines internet-based communication and SMS in a seamless and unified viable platform that is not Hangouts.
So what’s the difference between this new possible project and Hangouts?
It seems that it wouldn’t need a Google account for validation, which could be a nagging aspect in some emerging markets? It appears that, by removing this urge for creating Google accounts in order to use Hangouts, the new app would be used much more and would manage to compete with the now-paid WhatsApp and Line, as well as other popular applications which activate in the same spectrum with some popularity.
It also appears that the perfect market for testing such a new app is India, and if this project becomes reality, that is where you should be if you wanna be the first to test it! It could happen in the future but don’t keep your hopes up, thing may get shaken soon!
