  • Sunbird, the iMessage for Android app, is making a comeback.
  • Invitations are rolling out in “small phases” starting today.
  • The company claims it has replaced its old architecture with new architecture focused on privacy.

Remember the whole Nothing Chats debacle from last year? It was an app built on top of Sunbird’s architecture, which had so many security flaws Nothing Chats and Sunbird’s own messaging app were taken down from the Google Play Store. Well, Sunbird is back, hoping users will forget the past and will give it a second chance.

Through a press release, Sunbird announced it plans to relaunch its beta iMessage for Android app. The company says it is sending out invitations to those on its waitlist in small phases starting today.
