Google is rolling out the much-anticipated update today that will allow users to see message reactions from iPhone users as emojis. Messages by Google is also receiving several new features.
Verizon is the latest major carrier to finally team up with Google to bring support for the new standard way of messaging with Google Messages.
Google Duo will stop working on uncertified Android devices after March 31, but will give a grace period of two weeks to download your files.
The new features also include a mic icon to record and send audio messages, but all of them are only available for devices on which RCS chat is enabled.
Users will have the option to revert back to the SMS or MMS standard in case there is poor network, but they won't be end-to-end encrypted.
