Google Joins The Group Messaging App Party With “Disco”

Group messaging is apparently big business and now we have another app joining the party!!

First Facebook announced it acquired Beluga and now Google releases a group messaging app called “Disco”. The app, as you would imagine, allows users to send text messages to groups of people from their contacts and members of the group can reply to everyone. Simple concept using text messaging.
