Messaging Tools: Samsung Messages vs Google Messages
Owning a Samsung device may have drawn your attention to the fact that Samsung Messages or Google Messages were pre-installed on it. As part of a growing collaboration with Google, Samsung is bringing the Messages app created by Google is more and more Galaxy phones.
- Let’s determine which app is the best based on its messaging tools.
Both apps support sending emojis, stickers, and GIFs in addition to photographs, videos, audio files, and voice recordings. However, for some reason, Samsung Messages requires you to send stickers using Samsung Keyboard rather than Gboard. On both apps, you can schedule messages, add subject lines, share your location and contacts, and store draughts.
Messages apps from Google and Samsung make it difficult to send films since their quality has been slashed to absurdly low levels, often to the point where the information is rendered incomprehensible. For sending videos, you’re therefore better off utilizing WhatsApp, Discord, or any other third-party messaging platform.
Only Google Messages supports the sending of documents but it is limited to 307kb and the designation of messages as urgent. However, with Samsung Messages, you may share calendar events as text messages or as VCS files and send fast replies like “What’s up?” and “How are things going?” as well as other phrases like “Sorry, I missed your call.”
There are a few more features in Google Messages that make it a more appealing choice. There are a few helpful tools that provide in-conversation ideas depending on the context of your messages under the Suggestions tab.
To enable fast communication, features like Smart Reply and Suggested Actions can help you rapidly arrange events, share your location, attach recent images, or send GIFs.
