Google Messages is adding new features here shortly that will make organizing your conversations easier and also help you find important messages later on. An updated version is rolling out that hints at the new goods, which include pinned conversations.
The XDA Developers have managed to dig them out in an APK teardown. The first one is support for pinned conversations. As the name suggests, it will let you pin up to three conversations at the top of your list for quick access. You needn’t burn calories scrolling or searching your most accessed conversations. The second is starred messages that will let you bookmark messages across conversations. These messages will be accessible through the search bar and probably a dedicated section in the overflow menu. Starred messages will even carry a star badge for quicker identification.
Google Messages gains an alternate One UI-inspired design, the Chromecast with Google TV gets an April update, Samsung begins rolling out its May 2021 patch, and more.
