Inside days of its introduction, the Beeper Mini Android app was seemingly blocked from accessing Apple’s iMessage community. Within the face of blocked entry, the corporate behind it’s now preventing to regain it.
In posts to X first reported by Engadget, Beeper is engaged on a fix that’s “nonetheless within the works.” The fix itself is seemingly “very shut, and only a matter of a bit extra effort and time.”
