A new app called Snowball has just been launched today. Running on Android (for now), Snowball serves as your smartphone's universal inbox for all your messaging clients, collating all messages from SMS, Facebook Messenger, Google Hangouts, Snapchat, and WhatsApp, to name a few. When installed on your smartphone, Snowball's icon should appear right on the Android homescreen as an icon. But why launch on Android first, and not on, say, iOS? Well, the background of the app's creators, Anish Acharya and Jeson Patel, may have something to do with it. Acharya and Patel had met at the University of Waterloo before ending up in the city of Seattle with the two working for Amazon and Microsoft, respectively. They would later partner to form and then sell SocialDeck, a company that publishes mobile social games, to Google back in 2010. In their Google stints, Acharya would later run the mobile product for Google +, while Patel would found Google Play Games. From Google, Acharya would later go to Google Ventures where he worked as an investing partner for a few years. Needless to say, both have roots in Google and solid ties to the Android team, so debuting their Snowball app on Android makes a lot of sense.
