If you’re an Android user in a orchard of Apple trees, you may be tired or indifferent to being “the green bubble” of the lot.

There’s a developer effort firmly in progress called “Pie Message” that hopes to bring the iMessage client over to Android, but it could get overshadowed by a rumored reveal next week at WWDC.

According to a source to MacDailyNews, it seems that the company will bring iMessage and its end-to-end communications encryption over to Android. The details of the announcement are still murky as are the keynote preparations, but it is said that the iMessage for Android will “definitely” launch within the year and feature peer-to-peer payments via Apple Pay.

It would be the latest in a handful of apps it has made for Google’s mobile operating system — the first of which was an app to migrate data from a user’s Android phone to a new iPhone. Infinite Loop has also exported Apple Music with expanded features like the ability to store tracks onto an SD card.

Just one more rumor to add onto our “BOLO” list.
