more recent focus for its scattered messaging efforts following its decision to "pause" work on Allo, is now available for web users. In addition to sending text, users can send stickers, emoji, and attach images on Messages for the web. You can also send and receive messages as long as both devices are connected to an internet connection.


The Google Podcasts app is now available for Android devices and can be downloaded on Play Store. To get started, users will need to head over to "messages.android.com" which will generate a QR code, that will be scanned through your phone's Android Messages app upon tapping on the "Messages for Web" overhead menu.

Android Messages for web now lets you text from PC and Mac. This page has the full instructions on this which uses a QR code.

Google announced a year ago it is working with the mobile industry to bring SMS into the modern day, through a universal standard called RCS (Rich Communications Services). But messaging, of course, is a must-have - and users may be making picks among the various services that are hard if not impossible to shake. Google has been adding new features to the app for some time now.


You shouldn't necessarily need to have your phone out to send a message, and over on the iPhone, that's what Apple's iMessage does.

Next, as visible in WhatsApp chat service, whenever someone sends a link in the chat, for instance about an article, the receiver can directly see an inline preview of the link.

On top of those is the ability to automatically copy and paste one-time passwords or pins right from a notification message, a nifty feature for those who are using two-factor authentication via text.
