Applications have several options to notify us. Some more efficiently and some less. The point is, some vital information can go unnoticed if things are not done correctly. To prevent this from happening, Google modifies the messages so that no SMS is missed.
Google Messages: Now we don’t miss any SMS!
Leakster Nick Ciprianie found this new feature and immediately revealed it on the Android Police website. In fact, it will be much more difficult for an unread message to escape our attention. All because a much thicker and clearer blue point appears. At the moment it appears to be a server-side update and is only available to a limited number of people.
So far, Google has always preferred to mark unread messages in bold, as it does in Gmail. Now, however, it has decided to follow in the footsteps of other applications, including WhatsApp or Apple Mail. That way everything is much more visible.
This isn’t the only new addition to Google News, however. It is now possible to send videos via SMS without losing quality! This also applies if RCS is not available. With the large amount of exchanges we do every day, this is unquestionably great news.
The 9to5Google site discovered this new feature in the Google messaging file APK. The beta version of Google Messages 10.4 reveals a new feature in the definitions called Google Photos: Share higher quality videos via text (SMS / MMS).
In this case, users will receive a link to Google Photos to view the video we shared in the highest quality. But it will also be possible to display it directly in the app and that is really convenient.
Although very useful, this is not a new concept. Samsung has long supported something similar when it comes to links sharing. Photos and videos are uploaded to a Samsung server and can then be downloaded by the recipient for a limited period of time. In any case, this new Google feature is very important. So far, if we wanted to share this content via SMS, everything was very compressed and we didn’t see anything at all.
Now we can send whatever we want without RCS so that people have access to the highest quality content.
What is RCS?
The RCS is a new universal standard whose main goal is to use the internet to fix all SMS and MMS errors!
We have access to sending messages over the internet, adding people to group conversations, knowing whether the other person is writing or not, knowing if the other person has read the message you sent, sharing quality photos … and maybe the most interesting feature in the middle … You don’t need a special app or account for everything to work!
