After the main Google app and Google Keyboard are updated, here’s a new Messenger app from Google. This is a new app that is meant for SMS messaging so you can stay in touch with family and friends all the time. This also allows MMS messaging to any phone, as well as, group texts. If you still want to share more media, you can do so and send photos, audio messages, and videos.
The Google Messenger app also allows easy searching through conversation threads and contacts. You are sure to find what you’re looking for simply by typing a word or key phrase.
Of course, this new app will feature Google’s latest Material Design so expect a more fluid, delightful, and more intuitive design. We don’t clearly know what that means but we’ll sure know once more Material Design-based apps are introduced.
As with any messaging software, you can choose to block other SMS senders you don’t want. This way, you’ll have more control of the messages you see on your phone. Texting is also more fun and at the same time convenient now because of message archiving, colored text threads, emoji support, and audio messages.
While another messaging app is more than welcome, we find it weird that Google has two now especially since Google Voice and Hangouts were recently updated to support MMS and SMS.
