iMessage on Mac OS X 10.6

Icon ask Sir Apfelot

ask Sir Apfelot: iMessages under OS X 10.6The question is: Can I use [iMessage-> imessage] on Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)?

Answer: Unfortunately no. Not only officially, iMessage can only run under OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion). Even if you drag the program from another computer to a Mac with a Snow Leopard installation, iMessages will not start. It needs 10.8 to work. This is due to various APIs and other things that must be present in the background, which Snow Leopard unfortunately does not offer.
