According to 9to5Google, the following features of the app Google Messages allows you to view voice memo transcriptsfrom reply to messages with the emojis of your choice, and more. Earlier, Google Messages also came with reply functions, YouTube PiP and emoji reactions.
In Google Messages, whether you’re chatting in RCS or SMS/MMS, you can record a voice message to send to your conversation partner. Sometimes such a recording is not the best way to get your message across. For example, audio compression may make your words difficult to hear, or your recipient may not be able to hear the message.
Google Messages transcribes voice memos. In one version, new messages are automatically transcribed as soon as they are received. In another, you must manually press a “Transcribe” button, according to the report.
Google Messages seems to have managed to transcribe most messages, including auto-cut pauses and intonation. When you hit “Transcribe” on a 13-second clip, there’s a significant delay compared to Google Assistant voice input on the Pixel 6.
Complete reactions by emojis
Google is also working to improve responses to RCS chats. The source spotted a beta feature in Google Messages that lets you reply with any emoji. ‘Thumbs down’ emoji has been replaced with an ‘Add emoji’ indicator.
Pressing this button will bring up the full range of emoji on your Android smartphone that you can use to reply to a message. Best of all, personalized responses to emojis work on the recipient’s side despite the option being enabled.
View of the renovated gallery
Google Messages photo gallery could get a facelift. The software features a horizontally scrolling grid of your recent photos and screenshots, as well as the ability to snap a photo on the go.
Users can now scroll through photos vertically and use more of the screen. “Folders” replaces “Gallery” and offers a similar experience. The Google Messages photo gallery redesign, including the floating action buttons, falls under the Material You Design guidelines.
