Sony has released a messaging app for gamers.

Technology services have built their own messaging apps to grow communities, which, in turn, sustains the business. Facebook's Messenger is a perfect example, and so is Google's Hangouts. There's also WhatsApp, which Facebook bought for $19 billion, and other messaging apps like Line, WeChat, and KakaoTalk.

Today, Sony is joining the trend by releasing its own gaming-centered messaging app dubbed PlayStation Messages, which is now available for iOS and Android devices. The messaging app, Sony says, allows users to send messages to friends, making it easier to, say, gather the team for another round of gaming.

Sony decided to create the messaging app after discovering that Messages was the most used feature of the PlayStation App. Engineers went on to build a standalone app that has a streamlined design, which allows users to access messages faster, without having to switch tabs.

Just like any other messaging app, PlayStation Messages displays your friends on a list, which is sorted alphabetically or according to their online status. It also shows your favorite groups--teams that you love to hang out or play with. Of course, the app lets you send text or voice messages, including fun stickers and attachments.

The app is now available to download on the App Store and Google Play Store. Sony says that one of its main goals is to make the PS4 experience more connected and social. “Making PS4 a socially connected experience has always been one of our core goals, and we think this app will help enhance that connectivity even further,” the company said.
