Google has a new standalone messenger app and it's now available in the Play Store!
Unlike Hangouts this app only does SMS. People have complained about using Hangouts for SMS but there wasn’t any official alternatives from Google until today. This app is a nice simple messaging app that has a clean material design and smooth animations.
Here is the full feature list.
- Faster sharing: Select or take pictures and videos directly from the app and share easily. You can even send audio messages to your contacts.
- Easy search: Search through contacts and conversation threads to find exactly what you are looking for.
- Purposeful design: New, fluid, material design that is intuitive and delightful.
- More control: Ability to block SMS senders. No interruptions when you don’t want them!
- More features: audio messages, emoji support
Messenger is supported on devices running Android™ 4.1, Jelly Bean, and above.
