Google continues to bring more features to its Android Messages app. Google Messages has recently received new features, which makes it like Apple iMessage.
Although SMS is no longer used much, Google continues to improve this application. Now, the feature that was available on Facebook Messenger for a long time seems to arrive soon. Thanks to this feature, it is possible to use both Google Messages and a different application.
Google Messages will soon get bubble notifications on Android 11
Recently, Android 11 Beta was being available on some devices. With the release of this version, some new features have begun to show themselves. In a new feature that has emerged, it has been discovered that Google Messages can be used in the form of bubbles, as in Facebook Messenger. Thanks to this feature, it will be possible to work on other applications and messaging at the same time.
While using a different application or on the main screen, a bubble will appear on the screen if the message comes up. The photo of the person who sent the message will appear in this bubble and will be the first letter if there is no photo. Tapping this bubble will reveal new features. From here, messaging, calling and video calling options will be available for the user.
This feature was also announced from Google’s official Reddit account. Users can start to try this feature by joining the Google Messages Beta program. The feature will be available in the beta version in the coming days.
You can click here to join the program. It is worth noting that in the beta version the application will not work completely stable and you have the responsibility.
Google Messages reactions to messages with emojis
Recently, Google has been working on streamlining its messaging application and setting up RCS chat for the general public. It’s not close to iMessage yet, but the company is continually adding new features to improve the experience. Emoji reactions in RCS messages is the last feature being tested in the Messages app.
Emoji reaction functionality has now started to appear for users. For those who do not know, this feature allows you to long-press a message to see a group of emojis, similar to those seen on Facebook, appear on your screen, including the thumb up, thumbs down, anger and a crying emoji. This feature seems to only work on the RCS version and is not available in SMS conversations.
