Google News will show reactions from iPhones as emoticons

Google has announced a few new products to its text messaging application. Google Messages users will now find it easier to communicate with iPhone owners, including reading their responses in the form of emoticons.

Google is updating Google Messages, its messaging app. This tool supports, inter alia, the new RCS standard, i.e. text messages enriched with, for example, multimedia elements. However, Apple defends this standard, which uses its own solution in iPhones and other equipment. This makes messages sent from an iPhone, for example, different on an Android device. Better now.

Reactions as emoticons and videos in better quality

Google News will now be able to show responses sent from iPhones as emoticons, just like when they are sent from an Android device. For starters, this feature is supposed to work on devices with an English language version.

Another change that facilitates contacts between “androiders” with “iphoneers” is sharing videos in a conversation as links to Google Photos. Thanks to this, iPhone owners will be able to watch this movie in original quality, instead of the fuzzy clutter that reaches them via MMS.

So Google does not waste time to convince Apple to use the RCS standard, but comes up with solutions that will overcome it. With what effect? Soon you will be able to find out for yourself.

More order in the news

Another novelty in the Google Messages application is the so-called An organized inbox that automatically sorts messages into personal and business messages (and puts them on the appropriate tabs). Conversely, for messages with passwords, you can set them to be automatically deleted after 24 hours. This feature was first launched in India and is now landing in the US.

Other news

Google News will remind you with a gentle “nudge” about news replies we may have missed. For starters, English-speaking users of the application will benefit. On the other hand, if we set a birthday in contacts, we’ll get a notification about that special day when we open Messages or go to a conversation with that person.

The above news should reach users of the Google Messages app in the coming weeks.
