  • Google Makes Android Messages for Web Official, Announces Other...

To send and receive messages from your desktop or laptop, you need to visit Android Messages website.

Although Android Messages is now a separate app that needs to be downloaded from the Play Store, Google is planning to bring all functionality to the standard messaging software on Android phones. As of now, my phone app has updated but hasn't brought forward the option to scan code so as to access messages on the web.

The long-rumoured interface allows users to pair a desktop with an Android phone and to send and receive messages via your PC or laptop.

Google has added four new features to its data-saving application, Datally, today. The web client's functioning is quite similar to that of WhatsApp web. Google likewise enables clients to check the preview to the connections that you or your contact list is sharing inside "Messages" app so you don't have to leave the app to check what site or the substance of the connection is.

The Smart Reply feature which was first seeded to Gmail now finds itself being ported to the Messages app on Android making it easy to instantly reply your friends easily.

Payments and purchases are also coming to Android Messages.

Android Messages for the web is starting to roll out to users and should reach everyone by next week, according to Google. The latter will only be available in English for now, however, more languages will be supported soon.

Android Messages is actually Android's official app for sending text messages (SMS and MMS) and chats.

You can use it to chat one-on-one with friends and family, participate in group texts, and send pictures, videos, and audio messages. Upon login, there is a "Remember this computer" option to make pairing in the future much easier.

The Android app available on the Play Store is just a shortcut to the existing component in the Google app.

If you're looking to send some animated GIFs, all you have to do is type a term into the chat window and, instead of pressing the send icon, hit the one that says "GIF Search". For starters, it has a smart reply feature.

The app also includes all the usual features, such as downloads, subscriptions, and - interestingly - a donations button so you can buy your favorite creators a beer.
