After Mocking And Pleading With Apple, Google Knocks Regulators Doors To Open Up iMessage

After mocking and pleading with Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) to open up iMessage to non-iPhone users, Alphabet Inc.'s (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL) Google is now knocking on the doors of European Union regulators.

What Happened: Google has partnered with several European telecom companies, including Vodafone Group Plc. (NASDAQ:VOD), Deutsche Telekom AG. (OTCQX:DTEGF), and Orange to urge the European Commission to recognize Apple's iMessage as a "core" service, reported The Financial Times.

Doing so would force Apple to make iMessage interoperable with other messaging services.
