Two different OS, but from a single vendor. Also from what I understand, iMessage on MacOS/iPad-without-cellular is limited if you don't have an iPhone/iPad-with-cellular.

I agree that it is stupid to design a messaging protocol based on a phone number as an identifier. It's the main reason why WhatsApp on PC is unavailable.

What I don't understand is that even people here on slashdot praise these crappy proprietary messaging solutions and some even use / apologize the use of one of the worst of them all, iMessage/FaceTime, which is only available on a single platform in addition to being proprietary and non standard.
