App Description

Meet Messages, Google's official app for texting (SMS, MMS) and chat (RCS). Message anyone from anywhere with the reliability of texting and the richness of chat. Stay in touch with friends and family, send group texts, and share your favorite pictures, GIFs, emoji, stickers, videos and audio messages.
Chat features (RCS)
On supported carriers, you can send and receive messages over Wi-Fi or your data network, see when friends are typing or when they have read your message, share images and videos in high quality, and more.
Clean, intuitive, and comfortable design
Instant notifications, smart replies and a fresh new design make communicating faster and more fun. With dark mode, you can use Messages comfortably in low-light situations.
Easy sharing
Select or take pictures and videos directly from the app and share easily. You can even send audio messages to your contacts.
Richer conversations
Send audio messages, emoji, stickers, or your location. You can also send and receive payments with Google Pay.
Powerful search
Now you can find more of the content shared in your conversations: tap on the search icon and select a specific contact to see your messaging history with them and all the photos, videos, addresses or links you shared with each other.
Messages is supported on devices running Android™ 5.0 Lollipop and above.

Ratings and Reviews

by Alessandro Lucas,For the moment, I put only 1 star because there is one big issue: the app isn't working in the background all the time, but temporarily and succinctly. So I can't receive messages in the due time, except with the WiFi chat feature. There is only one person from whom I can receive all the messages, probably because it's an older phone without the WiFi chat feature. Anyway, please fix this issue, then I will review my rating. Thank you in advance.

by Keenen Blockson,5 months ago I gave a great review. But for the past 30 days I've not been able to send or receive media messages. Anything with a picture attached refuses to send from my phone through this app, nor can I receive pictures from anyone while using this app. This seems like it requires a serious bug fix. I've had to switch back to my default messenger for now after years of use.

by Debal Banerji,After the last updated there are lots of issues. A) most of the time it is giving a blank screen. I have to restart the phone. B). Messages are coming in late or not coming at all. Particularly very problematic for OTPs. C) consuming lot of battery even when Wifi is off. Aslo started heating up even when phone is not in use. God know how the app has become such messed up causing lot of inconveniences.

by Dhaval Gogate,This app worked very well prior to recent update(s). There are 3 issues after the recent update(s) that I have found. First, it uses a ton of background processing, which should not be the case at all. I don't have RCS or anything else enabled, which subdued for a bit after battery optimization. For several days, my phone went dead some time in the night because the messages app (which should be stupidly simple) hogged away my phone battery. Who knew? Second, it started popping up a new notification -- "Messages is processing an incoming message" -- which again does not make sense at all. Why would the app be processing a regular text message for 10+ minutes? Third, if I open the messages app, it goes blank. Nothing on the screen, nada, zilch. So I paired this app on my computer but guess what? The computer doesn't even show the latest messages! I have cleared cache, optimized battery, and reinstalled thrice in the past few days but these issues linger.

by Sheila Litherland,Worked great until latest download and then it started spamming "Messenger Keeps stopping". If it hadn't worked fine before my rating would be 1 star. I have a temporary fix - not sure how long it will last. I took a giant leap and downloaded a previous version from a 'site' (not sure how trustworthy and it was covered in 'why don't you download this too' apps) and so far I am good. My biggest question is: Why doesn't Google offer Previous Versions HERE? We could Choose which version we wanted and feel fairly safe in downloading. Boo Google - just bad Configuration Management on your part. "Tears" My phone is MOTO G4 Play.
