App messaging Android Messages received the web-version and a step closer to impose competition to iMessage.
I will remind, in April of this year, Google announced that it will stop developing Allo messenger and is working on a service Chat. Then we were promised that the Android Messages app will also get new features. All these perturbations are intended to impose competition to iMessage.
And now the company of mountain view has announced the release of the web version of the Android Messages. The app is now available at messages.android.com. To log in to your account, you need to scan a QR code through the smartphone app (in the app tap the menu options and select “Messages for web”). Note that the update to Android Messages will be distributed gradually, so if you don’t have the option “Messages for web” in the settings, it will appear in the coming weeks.
Messages for web work in all browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge, Opera). There is support for dark themes, stickers, built-in notifications and other functions. In addition, Google has added a mobile app Android Messages separate button to search for the GIF-animations, previews of the links in the message and click “Copy” in the notifications for messages that contain one-time codes (for example, banking or SMS messages with the code two-factor authentication).
