Google Brings Android Messages to the Web

Google Brings Android Messages to the Web

The option to check your text messages in a browser is one-step closer to reality with Google announcing the service - as well as four other new features will be going live this week. It's only available in English for now, but more languages are on the way.

Starting today, sending and receiving SMS and RCS (Rich Communication Services) text messages from a computer will become easier for Android users, with Google officially rolling out its Android Messages client for web after months of rumors. Google is also adding GIF search to the mobile app, for animated replies. Google has stated that an average Android user has saved 21% of their mobile data by using data from Monday to Thursday and having Friday covered by Datally.

To get started, you'll simply have to browse over to Google's site for the service and follow the instructions to get your phone ready, and text away. The page says to use the latest version of the app, but the latest version doesn't let you scan the QR code. You should ensure your Android Messages app is up to date to make sure you can access these new features as soon as they go live. There's also a Smart Reply feature, with suggested responses that will vary according to the contents of the last message you received.

Similar to WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger, you will be able to get a preview if you receive a link from your contacts. As for the other features, they'll be pushed out over the coming week, Google says. Perhaps, the nicest addition though is the ability to easily copy and paste one-time codes sent to you.
