Beam Messenger has lanched on the iPhone and Apple Watch, while its Android version got a redesign this week.

Since launch, the app has racked up 100,000 users on Android.

“We are pleased to release Beam on two new platforms,” Alec Gordon, Beam CEO, said. “In North America, iOS represents almost half of the smartphone market. In addition, Apple Watch has rapidly grown in popularity since its launch.”

Beam Messenger is a real time messaging app. The startup behind it was founded in 2014 by Gordon and Paul Wang.

“Beam’s goal is to create the fastest method of information transfer over text,” Gordon said. “Users will find that our iPhone app has some of the latest iOS9 features and our Apple Watch app is the first app to show true real-time messaging.”

In April, Toronto’s Beam Propulsion Lab raised $450,000 in seed funding.

“The new capital will allow us to scale operations and expand to more countries,” Gordon said at the time.

Investors in the round included Extreme Venture Partners and MaRS IAF.
