Upon opening this menu option, a QR code reader will appear to scan the code on the Messages for web page. Google took it to its official post to reveal that the company will be introducing a whole set of features to the Android messages among the highly anticipated feature where users can send or receive messages on the web.
Google is going to launch the new feature for the web browsers. The company announced that it would begin rolling out Messages for web starting today, with the full rollout completing over the next week.
Much like the implementation of this feature in Gmail, Smart Reply offers up response suggestions based on the message received using AI. Google recommends staying connected to WiFi in order to save your mobile data while using the desktop service.
Finally, we are nearly there-in a bit Google will have you sending and receiving text messages via your desktop. All you have to do is click on the machine generated reply, and the app will automatically send it as your reply. As of now, this feature is only available in English while support for other languages is expected to come at a later stage.
Google has also announced four other new features in the Messages app.
Users can now search within the messaging app to find the ideal reaction to their friends' news. Users can also preview links within conversations.
To enable it, you'll need to go to the Messages app on your phone first. Now on the left hand side of the Android Messages compose bar is a + button that will open up a search for that ideal representation.
When you're sent a one-time-password or security code by a website/organization, you can copy that code directly from the notification of the message.
