Snowball is the amazing one-stop shop for all the messaging needs for Android users. It looks to be your unified single inbox bringing together all your messages from the Facebook messenger, Snapchat, WhatsApp, Google hangouts and more. It also brings all your messages on the floating icon like you would find with the Link Bubble or like Facebook’s chat heads.
Snowball is developed by Anish Acharya and Jeson Patel and they worked for Google, Microsoft, SocialDeck and Amazon with a couple of little projects such as Google Play Games and the mobile side of Google+. Snowball currently supports Google Hnagouts, Line, Facebook Messenger, SMS, Slack, Snapchat, Twitter, WeChat and WhatsApp. Developers say that these are the services to get the things rolling and other services could be added very soon.
This app is very simple, instead of officially plugging into the APIs, if any of the individual services, Snowball works on your Android notifications to collect the messages and bring them to the user. Once again to be clear, it is not a messaging service like WhatsApp or Facebook it is just a unified inbox for other messaging services you have already installed on your device.
This may be first time, so many of use heard about Snowball, it is already the en-route to the big thing. They also announced the round of seed funding of more than $2 million worth and a canny tease that this is the first layer of the app and that is in the pipes. Snowball is available for free and you can download it from Play Store. Today an update is released and it fixed all the initial Xpose module compatibility issues.
