Messaging service on Android is messed up. Google tried different way but failed. Google has a bunch of messaging service like Hangout, Allo, Messages, Duo. (Comment if I forgot any). Finally, Google decided to improve one app “Android Message”. It has already received many features and some source said Android message will get features like iMessage. Message over the internet when you are connected with internet and also other person using message. Google will change the name of Android Message to “Chat”.
So Now let’s talk about some hidden features of Android Message. Before we continue to make sure you have the latest version of Android Message. As on 29th June latest version available on playstore is 3.3.044.
#1. Send GIF or Stickers over Message
This feature is there for a month but it’s worth considering. Now you can send a preinstalled sticker to the end person or any GIF directly from the message.
All you have to do is open a chat and press on “+” icon to see the GIF or stickers. You can also send pictures, emojis, location or audio. It’s worth noting that photo or GIF will be send using MMS service and not over the internet.
