“Kids will have a group chat just for that class with their friends to talk about homework, projects, etc.,” he tweeted.

His quote verbatim, "we would start a new group chat, and the group would realize I was the reason it was green, and they would start another group chat without me — Ben Bajarin (@Ben Bajarin) August 15, 2019s Mike Masnick talking about it way back in 2015.
In the meantime, Apple surely wouldn’t mind if more people like Ben’s Android-enthusiast teenage friend switched over to i Phones because of i Message. Outside those markets, i Phones aren’t as ubiquitous.
Bajarin: While I have zero evidence of this, I’d wager a strong bet the group at Apple who designed this did extensive research on the most off-putting color of green in existence and chose that for the green bubble color. In the rest of the world, people use a wider diversity of messaging apps, such as Whats App, that are fully cross-platform.
Analyst Ben Bajarin recently talked to a teenage boy at his daughters’ school who had defected from an Android phone to i Phone because of “i Message lock-in.” The boy said he was tired of being shut out of i Message group chats because messages from his Android phone were showing up as green bubbles and his i Phone-using pals, whose messages appear in blue bubbles, didn’t like it.

Even though i Message lock-in isn’t really Apple’s fault from a technical standpoint, the fact that kids are being shut out of conversations with peers because of a technology disconnect is troubling.That would take those people out of the Apple ecosystem, Grothaus says. Teenagers have have enough trouble fitting in and getting along.
