Google's Group Texting App, Disco [techcrunch.com]
It seems like Google has made a foray into the group messaging space today with Disco, a new iPhone app and website. Well, they sort of have.

The service utilizes the Disco.com domain that Google bought at Domainfest last year for $255K. The Disco.com site went up today and the beta app hit the App Store yesterday, but no one noticed it ó until now. And hereís the thing: it was made by Slide.

Weíve been testing the app here at TC HQ and thus far its pretty fast, perhaps because itís initial build is more bare-bones than fellow group messaging contenders like Fast Society, Beluga and GroupMe. Itís actually pretty similar to the initial build of GroupMe before it added push notifications.
