I promise that we aren’t purposely making an attempt to confuse you all the time about Google’s messaging technique, however we have now an update nowadays. When you head into Google Play and test the apps you've to be had with updates, you’ll almost definitely realize one referred to as “Android Messages.” No, no, no, it’s now not a brand spanking new Google messaging app, it’s simply the nice ol’ Google Messenger with a recent new identify.
That’s proper, the brand new Android Messages app in your phone, which can display within the app drawer as simply “Messages,” is the brand new identify of Google’s Messenger app. At a loss for words? Don’t be! It’s only a identify trade. Not anything else has modified right here. Actually, Google in reality up to date the changelog for it because the identify transfer started – one thing that just about merits its personal press unlock (that will be the Google up to date a changelog phase) – throwing out the next tagline of, “A brand new identify! Messenger is now Android Messages, the messaging app constructed for Android.” Lovable.
Once more, not anything will trade, however that is the Android messaging app that Google will push because the default on Android units. It’s RCS-equipped, so it will have to be in a position to deal with the way forward for wireless service messaging. It does all the fancy RCS issues in case you are at the proper service (learn receipts, high-res photograph sharing, higher staff chats, and so forth.) and is already being followed via some, together with Dash.
So yeah, clutch that update to Android Messages, your new messaging app “constructed for Android!”
