Love pretty much everything about this app, but recently I have not been receiving texts or person I'm sending to, doesn't receive mine. I've missed so many text and constantly need to reset my phone to get the messages to go through or receive them (even resetting doesn't always help though) this really needs to be fixed as soon as possible. From what I read in other recent comments, I'm not the only one having this problem.
... but I had to ding it one star because it doesn't have scheduled sending. An ancient LG phone from 2012 with its own messaging app could do that, why can't Google Messenger? Aside from that, I really like it... Simple, uncluttered, does the job. Another thing, and another star, messages must be deleted individually, each with a confirm. Why is there no way to select multiple messages within a conversation for a multi-delete in a single action (not talking about deleting the whole conversation). Again, this is something that existed in my old 2012 phone, and is simple enough.
You people at Google can update this app to look all cool with new features but you can't add a batch delete mode to delete certain multiple messages within a conversation without having to long press each one to delete. Other messenger apps developed by others have it. Why can't you guys do the same? Maybe not smart enough to get the job done?
Nice app with modern Interface....Hoping to get more from #Google.....👍 Suggestions which I felt: 1) Selected chat should be highlighted like a banner not just tick mark it looks confused with other contact icon. 2) Multiple reply without closing quick reply. 3) Online sms backup on our google acount. 4) Contact sharing. 5) sliding chat right should have delete option
ATTENTION Devs: The best feature to add that no other native sms message app has built-in would be SMS backup built-in to Google drive. I want to input my Google log in to the new phone and it'd download all and messages from the cloud to the new device. Just like how Google photos work. Please make it happen! I bet I'm not the only one who's like this to happen.
The app is simple and light. Works well sending SMS and MMS across different platforms. My only suggestions which I hope can be included in a update are 1. PLEASE include an option to hide message previews and still allow the phone to ring/vibrate. 2. The app picks a random color for each person; is it possible to add a global color scheme option? Otherwise a great app considering its free. Thanks.
