The Messages app is now featuring conversations, which gives its users express themselves in new ways. You can now pin the conversations to the top of your list and seem these pins with new animations. Memoji is also getting new hair and headwear styles to customize your Memoji. Other customizing options include a new face mask, age differences, and you get more options in your Memoji stickers.
Finally, Messages now has Groups, for you to other the chaos with in-line replies. You can view them as your own threads to focus on a specific topic. It also allows you to create a unique group identity, where you know who commented on your group recently because it will appear at the icon on the left. Mentions is also a new feature inside Groups that will let you type someone’s name to direct message to them, something similar to what we have in Whatsapp.
