APK Notes:

Google Messenger that showed up on the Nexus 6 is now in the Play Store, and this is the release version. Not the test one that's been floating around.

This release does not have a Play Store Description, so we grabbed one from version 2.0.768:

Stay in touch with friends and family. Messenger from Google is a communications app that helps you send and receive SMS and MMS messages to any phone. You can also send group texts as well as your favorite pictures, videos and even audio messages to your contacts.

Key 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 😃, stickers, location sharing, colored text threads, message archiving and more.

Messenger is supported on devices running Android™ 4.1, Jelly Bean, and above.

This release may come in several variants. Consult our handy FAQ to see which download is right for you.

    • Good one. Hopefully the factory images will be out today

    • Dave Adams

      Except Samsung customers because TW :(

      • Kitaro Do

        You’re wrong, S5, note 4, S4, Note 3 will get 5.0 at the end of 2014 :)

      • Nope, if you followed Samsung’s announcements, you would have heard that they will roll out Lollipop to Galaxy S 5, Note 4, S 4, and Note 3 by December

        • Dave Adams

          IIRC they said they would also release 4.4.4 quickly. We are only now getting it today.

  • jwildman16

    Can someone point out the pros/cons of Messenger vs. Hangouts?

    • Spacespacesean

      It all boils down to if you use hangouts various services, messenger is more of a minimal texting experience.

  • sunnt

    what about dual sim phones and how to send from particular sim

    • Jason Collado

      Hope they will support dual sim. Though the moto dual sim updated to lollipop

      • Elisa

        Downloaded the app, but is has no support for dual sim unfortunately. So I’ll stick with the traditional app…

  • Axi K.

    finally, can’t wait to see if its working properly on my 4.4.2

  • Awesome!

  • Except installing on a pre lollipop device with hangouts on it gives you three apps to then message from. Would be better if this replaced the original messaging app.

  • Michael Black

    No widget?

  • David Larsen

    It crashes on my CM11

  • AmirMohamed

    Hi I love this app but I have one problem, it shows me all the messages received only but not the messages I have sent, but if I send new sms after installing it then it shows me.. Is it only me

  • ajcrow93

    Crashes on cyanogenmod 11. Only seems to work on stock (4.4.4) for nexus 4. :(

  • Ibraim

    Should replace the native app.

  • I’ve downloaded the APK for this same app from a different site, and what I noticed is that the New Message button is not exactly circular.

  • kristian carl lasam
