Imagine if you could read as your girlfriend types, deletes or rewrites a reply to your message. With this new app, there is no hiding the emotions that you pour into your messages.
Known as Beam Messenger, "this is the closest you will get to having a verbal conversation in a messaging app", said its download page available on Google Play.
Unlike traditional texting apps, the app developed by the Toronto-based Propulsion Lab shows both participants in a conversation what the other party is writing.
"Beam Messenger is a first of its kind 'True Real Time' communications app. It allows for instant typing and transmission of text. Erase messages in real time or interrupt your friend to say 'you have heard the story before!'" the post of the company's website read.
"Every character, every deleted character, every single pause, in real time. Right there in the palm of your hand," it added.
Beam Messenger is free for Android users.
