In case WhatsApp and Kik aren't enough, there's also PingMe headed our way to Windows Phone. Though no ETA is given, on the PingMe page, wihich prominently shows the iPhone, Android and Blackberry, we get a nice little "coming soon" for Windows Phone. Sure, we're not the first, but it's actually kind of nice to see Windows Phone listed on new services, it's almost if companies are finally taking note of the platform, ya know?
Anyways, here are some of the features of PingMe:
- Cross platform
- Real-time message receipts
- Group chat
- News feed (from friends)
- Push notifications
We'll keep an eye out for any news with this one, but it should be a nice addition to our IM offerings. Thanks, Amir, for the heads up!
