One of the features of Apple devices that every Andriod fan loves is iMessage. iMessage allows users to reply to regular SMS with emoji and likes, but only recipients who use iMessage can display these messages correctly. Since every Android fan has at least one iPhone friend, he insists on using React, even if you don’t use iMessage.
Now, as per the information (via-9to5google), Google is currently working to solve this issue by introducing the iMessage reaction to Google Messages (RCS). The company has recently released a new beta update for Messages, which also reveals that Google is working on an option to properly display iMessage responses.
This new beta version 10.7.460 also brings bug fixes and stability improvements to the Google Message app. Since iMessage replies are, in essence, SMS messages provided by the iMessage client in a different way, Google can provide similar functions for Messages. In this way, a short message called “Liked [message]” can be displayed as like on the corresponding text.
Messages and iMessage use different emojis to achieve their reactions, which may cause problems, but it looks like Google is considering this. There is a string named “ios_reactions_mapping”, which is likely to transliterate the message correctly. Probably, this will also stop showing notifications for all these annoying personal reactions.
Currently, these iMessage reactions are only observed in the beta update and have not yet been launched. It may take some time before reaching a stable version.
Google Messages feature:
- Chat features (RCS)
- Clean, intuitive, and comfortable design
- Easy sharing
- Richer conversations
- Powerful search
