Android Messages is the official Android app that provides text and chat. In April, Google offered Android Messaging as a competitor to iMessage. On Monday Google announced that ‘Messages for the Web’ is a new feature of Android Messages. Google’s blogpost mentions that the web version will support text, photos and stickers. This is the first big step Google has taken for the chat feature. Following this move, the ‘Android Message’ contest will appear on the list of WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger. Desktop versions of both chat apps are available.
To use it, the user needs to install the latest version of the Android Messages app. You need to go to the PC and open the Android Messaging site, where you will be able to connect the phone and the PC by scanning the QR code. The message from the smartphone has to go to the three dot menu given in the app. Tap on ‘Messages for the Web’ here. However, this option mentioned in the message app is not live yet.
Remember, now on the desktop you will be able to see old messages as well as new messages and notifications services. Speaking of support, the new service could be used on Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Microsoft Edge and Google.
Google has announced four more new features in Messages. Now it comes with integrated GIF support, which will also have the option to search and send GIFs. Users will be able to preview the link in the conversion. Google will also provide a copy-paste feature on sent verification codes and passwords. This will allow you to enter a one-time password or code that comes to you in one tap. Many of these features were given by Google in April.
