We try to let you in on tech secrets when we can. We recently revealed some Apple secrets. (Click here to read about 5 huge changes coming to Apple soon.)

Now, we've got another big insider's scoop everyone else will hear on Monday during Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference. That's Apple's annual conference when it shows off its biggest new hardware like MacBook and Apple Watch, and its new software programs.

Even if you don't own anything Apple, you'll want to hear about this. Especially if you're one of the 1.5 billion people using Android smartphones and tablets.

One of iPhone's most popular features is its iMessage app (see below). It's like text messaging, only better. You can share videos in addition to texts and photos. Plus, unlike texts that you can only send from a cellphone to another cellphone, you can send iMessages to phones, tablets and computers. iMessage is free, unlike texts that you pay your cellphone provider to use.

The problem for Android users is, you can't use it. Yet.

Right now, you can send iMessages from Apple iPhones, iPads and Macs to other Apple devices. That's about to change, according to several sources. Apple will release iMessage for Android sometime this year, so everyone can iMessage.

If you don't use iMessage or other message apps, like Facebook's WhatsApp, your family and friends do. In fact, more than one-third of people use a messaging service now, and half of young people do.
