The new Google Messenger is now available in the Play Store


Google finally released its new Messenger app in the Play Store. They want you to substitute your phone’s messaging app with this nice looking app and you may like it. I have been using it for a while and I really got used to it over the Samsung messaging app. One my favorite features is when you want to attach a photo to a message. You don’t have to jump to the Gallery app, it simply appears on the bottom of your message.

The Messenger app allows you to block unwanted numbers, quickly look up a contact and more. It also supports group texting, emoji and message archiving. Here are the official features:

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

    Sorry aout another post. Seems to be it should be here instead. Anyway…

    Downloaded and installed it into my HTC M7 with Android v4.4.3. Doesn’t work perfectly, Buggy.

    Friend sms-ed me from Overseas, I got the sms alright, but it showed that the sms was from another person. There is a bug with the link to the People/Contacts list.

    Perhaps it;s not yet meant for non-Nexus devices


      I had the same experience. even after year of update the app is still buggy. After one year i decided to try this app again, I downloaded the latest version from and here is my initial review:

      (1) ability to send and receive GIFS
      (2) a tablet app that does what the Web app does, allowing tablet users to continue their phone chats on their tablets. I know the Web app can be used on tablet but it is sluggish and doesn’t handle notifications
