Android users can now message from the web

21 June 2018

Google says they'll be offering automatic subtitling for podcasts in the future to aid hearing impaired users, or users in a noisy area without headphones. Google has been working on the desktop version of its Android Messages; an app that lets you send and receive messages on your phone. This means you can continue playing a podcast you had on your phone on your Google Home when you get home, or vice-versa when you leave. The service has been launched by Google in order to compete with the iMessage service offered by rival Apple. "On Messages for web, you can send stickers, emoji, and attach images in addition to sending text". Major chat platforms like iMessage and Facebook Messenger, of course, have desktop versions, so it's a no-brainer that Google needed to add desktop support as well. From there, select "Messages for web" where the camera will open up and allow you to scan the barcode found after visiting Android Messages on the web.

In Messages, tap the More options menu (the three dots in vertical line located at the top-right corner of the mobile screen). Smart Reply uses machine learning to craft possible responses to your messages.

If it's not already installed on your smartphone, Android Messages is available to download from the Play Store. Google has added a way to search for the ideal gif to convey your feelings by tapping the "+" button on the left side of the compose bar. And also, this may not be something to be excited for unless you actively use SMSs in 2018. These AI features include the ability to read along with a podcast via automatic transcription, and the ability to read what's coming up next in the episode if you're looking to save some time.
