Recently, Google has released a new update for the Google Messages beta, which comes with several bug fixes and stability improvements. In addition to this, this beta update carries version number 10.8.260 and package size of 89.38 MB.

Meanwhile, a report (via-xda) revealed that the company has introduced a new feature called “nudge” in the Google Messages app. However, this feature is not yet ready for all users, as it is available only for a select few. This feature will help you master important conversations by sending them reminders to respond.

As mentioned above, the nudge feature appears to be rolling out with Google Messages version 10.8.260 beta. However, this is most likely a server-side rollout as some users are seeing this feature on version 10.6.240 as well.

How to use?

In any case, if you want to nudge, download the latest beta version of Google Messages from the Play Store. Users can activate the featureby following the steps mention below.

  • Go to Phone’s Settings
  • Click on General
  • Now, tab on Suggestions
  • Finally, click on Nudge.Here you find two options:
    • Suggest reply reminder
    • Suggest follow-up reminder.

The first option, when enabled, automatically displays “messages you might have forgotten to respond” to at the top of your inbox. Meanwhile, the second option will take your attention to “messages you may need to follow up on.”

Other than this, Google Messages is the official application created by Google for texting (SMS, MMS) and chat (RCS). It allows messaging anyone from anywhere with the reliability of texting and the richness of chat.

A few months back, it also received Material You, which includes a new pill-shaped search bar, a rounded rectangle floating action button, and support for Android 12’s dynamic wallpaper-based themes.

Samsung is planning to improve its virtual touchpad functionality, following valuable user feedback from its community. The company may release a major update for the One Hand Operation + Good Lock module to implement improvements.

A user on the Samsung community suggested including a “lock (fix) button” on the virtual touchpad to stabilize the cursor. This button would address concerns of thumb fatigue and precision aiming during single-handed operation.

This suggestion of a lock button is mainly useful for those who sometimes find the current controls challenging due to the cursor movement when adjusting the pointer speed.

In response, a community moderator has acknowledged the feedback and commitment to reviewing and improving the virtual touchpad by the second half of 2024.
