On Twitter, Robin Malhotra made an observation that I’d never really considered, nor recall anyone else observing, but which seems to me a very big deal: that iMessage is the only major messaging service that supports both end-to-end encryption and multiple devices. Even Google’s brand-new Allo does not support multiple devices (and only uses encryption for “incognito” chats).
Multi-device support is essential to my use of iMessage.
Update: Wire is another chat service that supports multiple devices and uses end-to-end encryption everywhere.
