Apple and WhatsApp Should Feel the Pressure with the Leaked Google Messages Feature
It is no news that apple Messages just got a whole lot of new features with the arrival of iOS 16, and it now looks like Google will not be all that far behind as it plans to add many more significant upgrades to its very own Messages app for android devices.
As per 9to5Google, a code has been revealed in the Messages app but it is not yet enabled thus suggesting that these set of features are still being worked on and be b brought to the limelight in the not too far future.
One of the many upgrades that are apparently in the works at the moment is the ability to reply to specific messages in a conversation. This is something that you will be familiar with in the event that you have made use of WhatsApp or iMessage. Also, users could be able to respond to any message with the emoji that they like.
Audio, Images, and Other New Updates Coming To Google Messages App
Well, that’s not all as it now looks as though Messages soon will be giving users the option of transcribing voice notes directly into texts. This means that you can get voice notes to be written out for you in the event that you are not able to listen to the actual audio clip. This is something that has not been seen in many other messaging rivals and it could be quite a coup for the messaging app of Google as it continues on building an active messaging app in a bid to attract new users.
There are also new indications and signs of a new gallery view that will be appearing inside the messages app, switching to a vertical layout that will make it easier to get to the image(s) that you want to attach to your outgoing messages.
When Will The Update Be Available To Users?
There is still no indication as to when all of these will be available to users but it however should not be too long. It may be possible that Google will use the launch of the Pixel 7 lineups on October 6 to make some announcements pertaining to software too.
