Google Messages double tap feature

Google is constantly improving the Messages app with new features and updates to make it more useful. At the moment, the Gooogle Messages is testing a new feature that will let you react to messages with a simple double tap.

According to a promo string found in the app, users will be able to double-tap on a text or chat to get a tray of emoji and Photomoji options. This feature is currently available in the latest beta version (20240208_00_RC00) of the app, but it is not yet live for all users.

The current way to react to messages in Google Messages is to long-press on them and select an emoji or a Photomoji from the menu. It is unclear whether this option will remain available after the double-tap feature is introduced.

Moreover, Google is rebranding its one-to-one chatbot feature inside Messages. Previously known as Bard, the chatbot is now called Gemini. Google has not officially announced the launch of Gemini, but the name change suggests that it is getting closer to a public release.

The Channels feature on WhatsApp has been getting more promising since the day it was unveiled, and providing users with a more relevant experience. Therefore, WhatsApp will soon start suggesting a list of similar channels based on relevance and similarity to other existing channels.

According to information, WhatsApp is working on a new feature that will suggest similar channels, and help users to discover new content that might align with their interests. Many users may not be aware of all the channels available on WhatsApp that cater to their interests.

Thus, by suggesting similar channels, WhatsApp will help users discover a wider range of content that they may find relevant and engaging. However, if users choose to follow a new channel or view the information of a channel they already follow, WhatsApp will suggest a list of similar channels based on their relevance.

It’s worth noting that only verified channels will be suggested, ensuring that users only receive recommendations from trusted sources. Simultaneously, these suggestions are based on the similarity of channel content rather than personalized algorithms analyzing user interests.

Consequently, the feature to suggest similar channels is under development and it will be available in a future update of WhatsApp.
