Google Starts Rolling Out Desktop Support for Android Messages from Today

Starting today, for example, the company is rolling out desktop support for Android Messages, which will let you send and receive texts from a computer. On your PC, go to the Android Messages site where you will need to scan a QR code using the Android Messages mobile app, creating a link between the two. It also needs to run the latest version of the Android Messages mobile app, which you can install for free from Google Play Store.

Besides texting, Messages for web lets users send stickers, emoji, and attached images.

According to reports, Google started rolling out the said update on Monday. Technology experts believe that Google's move will give tough time to Apple's iMessage, Facebook Messenger, and WhatsApp Web.

Google is beginning to roll out Messages for web today, and will do so over the next week, so if you don't have it yet, be patient.

To get started texting on your computer, pull up the Android Messages website on your desktop. It should not come as a surprise as the tech giant has already given enough hints that it will be favoring the RCS based Android Messages.

Now, Messages is gaining another feature to better compete with iMessage: web support. Google presented a blog entry on the feature of this component along with different changes that the organization has included the "Messages" app. To access the new GIF search feature, just tap the + button on the left side of the compose bar.

Google intends to have more than 2 million podcasts available on the app, which is only for Android, at launch. The component is constrained to the English language at the season of composing with help coming "to more languages after some time". What this meant is that Android users could finally send SMS in the form of chat rather than plain text. A new feature in Messages will allow you to copy the password directly from the service with a single tap. Depending on how many messages you send with pictures and other large files, it could be a deal-breaker in some situations.
