Google Messenger gains location sharing and stickers in version 1.4 update
If you happen to use Google’s wonderful Messenger application, you’re in for a treat. Today the messaging app is getting a new update that brings stickers, a few new sticker packs as well as the ability to share your location.
We know not everyone will find this first feature interesting, but many folks out there will be happy to hear that the latest update brings the ability to send stickers to your friends and family. You can easily access your downloaded sticker packs from the attachment button on the left side of your conversation screen. Only a few rows will be shown automatically, and you can swipe up to reveal more stickers if you’d like more to choose from. There are a handful of interesting packs that you can select, each containing dozens of animated stickers.
Moving on, the new update will also give you the ability to send your location with just a few taps. Just like when accessing the stickers, simply click on the attachment button and scroll over to the location icon. Sending your location will not only share your exact location, but also a link to open that location in Google Maps.
The new update is rolling out now in the Google Play Store, so be sure to head to the link below to grab the latest version.
