About this app

Google Messages is the official Google app for messaging over Rich Communication Services (RCS) with fallback to SMS/MMS. Get more done in your messages with one-tap calendar reminders and emoji replies, and keep your conversations secure with spam protection and end-to-end encryption so you can focus on connecting with the people and businesses you care about — no matter what device they use.

Know when friends are typing or when they've read your message, share high-resolution images and videos, easily add people to a group chat, and experience an all-around richer messaging experience.

End-to-end encryption secures your eligible communications, so no one (including Google and third parties) can read or view your messages and attachments except the person you’re messaging.

If a website is suspicious or unsafe, you’ll be warned before clicking any links. You can also block and report potential spammers to help stop unwanted and fraudulent messages.

Share high-resolution videos directly from your Google Photos library.

Keep the conversation going no matter what device you're on. Enjoy RCS chats with friends on your phone, computer, Android tablet, or smart watch with the Messages app.

Access suggested replies, one-tap calendar reminders, link sharing, and more without leaving your message. Reply quicker and get more out of your conversations with smart actions.

Suggested responses, gifs, and emojis make conversations faster and more fun. Reply back to messages with just a tap and keep the conversation going.

App also available on Wear OS

I'll update my rating once fixed. There seems to be a bug. The text messages only show the first line. If you click on it it'll display the second and third lines but that's all. It won't display the full text message when longer than 3 lines, sometimes only 2 lines. Please fix this bug and I'll happily change my rating to a 5 star one. I tried reaching out via the support email shown here in Google Play but it isn't reachable, sends you to the support page to look at FAQs. Thanks for your help.

Hi, Karla. Let's try resetting the app data. More info here (see "Clear the app's cache" section): We'll pass this along to the team so they can continue iterating on your feedback to make Messages even better. We ask that you submit feedback within the Messages app by clicking the Menu > Help and Feedback > Send Feedback.

It does the basic message functions. However, you will not get alerted that you are getting text messages unless you are constantly looking at your phone, that is my biggest gripe. And you also can't send pictures or videos from an outside source. You have t
