Richer messaging with chat features (RCS)
In supported conversations, you can send and receive messages over Wi-Fi or your data network, share images and videos in high quality, see when friends are typing or when they've read your message, and more.

Simple, intuitive, and comfortable design
Instant notifications, smart replies, and a modern design make communicating easy, fast, and convenient. You can send and receive texts on your mobile phone, computer or tablet. And with dark mode, you can use Messages comfortably in low-light situations..

Easy sharing
Easily take pictures and videos directly from the in-app camera or share from the media gallery. You can also send audio messages, share your location or contacts, and send and receive payments with Google Pay.

Express yourself
Communicate with friends, family, and groups in more fun and expressive ways using emojis, GIFs, and stickers.

Powerful search
Find more shared content in your conversations: tap on the search icon and select a specific contact to see your messaging history with them and all your shared text messages, images, videos, places, and links.

Safer conversations
