Quick reply functionality comes to the Google Messenger app in new update
The newest update to Google’s Messenger application brings a new feature that will make your texting experience much easier. After installing the latest update, you’ll be able to quickly respond to text messages from your friends and family using the new quick reply functionality that’s now built-in to the app.
Once you receive the update and someone sends you a text message, all you need to do is simply click on the reply prompt that pops up on your screen. This will pull up a quick reply screen, allowing you to respond to the text without the need to jump into the application. You won’t be able to reply to messages with photos or videos when using the quick reply feature. But if you need to attach a file to your text, you can click on the shortcut Google has provided below the text box to jump right into the full application.
The new update to Messenger is rolling out now in the Google Play Store, so follow the link below to grab the newest version!
