Google launches dedicated podcast app for Android

Enable Android Messages for web

Android users who favor Android Messages as their default messaging application will be thrilled to hear that Google has begun the rollout of desktop browser support.

Google is introducing Messages for web over the next few weeks, a feature that had been highly requested by users.

The premise of this tool is that it will allow you to send a received text via desktop, pretty much like the WhatsApp's web counterpart (or the iMessages).

Musk Claims Tesla Employee Tried To Sabotage Automaker
Once the factory is capable of that production figure, the CEO said Tesla can then begin producing the Model 3 short-range model . Tesla is dismissing more than 3,000 workers from its California headquarters and beyond, according to a report from Bloomberg.

Apple's iMessage is the glue that keeps many users on iOS, and now it appears Google is readying a legitimate competitor. Messages for web will also facilitate attaching images to the text along with sending emoji and stickers.

Google has created a new messaging experience that's available on multiple devices. Google likewise enables clients to check the preview to the connections that you or your contact list is sharing inside "Messages" app so you don't have to leave the app to check what site or the substance of the connection is.

Very soon, you will be able to send SMSes straight from your desktop browser. While Chat is not a standalone app, it is a new set of tools within the Android Messages app already installed on handsets. Finally, scan the QR code on your computer using your phone. Google has also baked in a smart reply that supplements the service with predictive messages. There is something of a land grab going on right now among the dominant messengers, and Google's increased focus in this area is another example of the big services trying to beef up their offerings and lock in users. This is Google's first major step toward "Chat", the company's addition of Rich Communication Services (RCS) inside Android Messages. Also, if you don't use your Messages account for 14 days, you will automatically be signed out.

Strong quakes hit Japan, killing at least 2, and Guatemala
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said authorities were assessing damage and that their top priority was the safety of residents. The agency originally put the magnitude at 5.9 but later raised it to 6.1.

Yet another useful feature is the Preview Links. I've read that there are Green and Blue bubbles, and that you can send messages from iPhone, iPad and even from Mac.

Now, Messages is gaining another feature to better compete with iMessage: web support. And the app will now let you easily copy one-time passwords and security codes.
