yes, but it's not relevant to what's being discussed.
this is the significant part:
As we recently detailed in a 25,000-word article, Google's
messaging history is one of constant product startups and shutdowns.
Thanks to a lack of product focus or any kind of top-down mandate
from Google's CEO, no division is really "in charge" of messaging. As
a consequence, the company has released 13 half-hearted messaging
products since iMessage launched in 2011. If Google wants to look to
someone to blame for iMessage's dominance, it should start with
itself, since it has continually sabotaged and abandoned its own
plans to make an iMessage competitor.
google released *thirteen* messaging apps, all of which failed in the
not just one or two, but thirteen. that takes a special level of
the question to ask is why can't google write an imessage competitor.
