Today i'm back with yet another tech news. Google announced that the global rollout of Android Messages for Web is now complete. Following an announcement by Google, and months of rumours Google had officially started rolling out Android Messages for Web last week. Let's see more about this new update by Google in this thread.


  • Android Messages for web is officially rolling out to all users.
  • Android Messages lets users send texts from PCs.
  • Feature has been rolled out globally.
  • Users need to update to the latest version of the Messages app.
  • Google also highlights smaller features that are now available in Messages.

Google announced that the global rollout of Android Messages for Web is now complete. Following an announcement by Google, and months of rumours Google had officially started rolling out Android Messages for Web last week. The company had informed that the new feature had started to roll out and should be available globally by this week. Now, Google has officially confirmed the rollout is complete, and that users need to update the Android Messages app to the latest version in order to avail the feature. With the update, sending and receiving SMS and RCS (Rich Communication Services) messages from a PC will become easier for Android users.

The company earlier this year moved its Allo team to work on Android Messages, Google’s app that utilizes the RCS messaging standard. The standard, adopted by numerous mobile operators worldwide, offers more feature parity with iMessage, thanks to its support for things like read receipts, typing indicators, high-res photo sharing, better group chat, and other features. Now, Messages is gaining another feature to better compete with iMessage: web support.

Android Messages is also expected to compete with apps like WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger, both of which are chat apps with desktop versions. While announcing Messages for Web as a brand-new feature for Android Messages, Google had mentioned that text, images, and stickers are all supported on the new Web version. This is also Google's first major step toward "Chat", the company's addition of Rich Communication Services (RCS) inside Android Messages. Apple   users can access iMessage conversations on their Mac using a dedicated app. Google’s Messages for web is similar in the sense that it also offers cross-platform access to messages – that is, it lets Android users view and respond to chats when they’re not on their phone.

However, the implementation of Messages for web is more like WhatsApp for the desktop, right down to how you scan a code on the Message website to sync things up with your phone. Google says Messages for web will support sending stickers, emoji and image attachments, as well as text, at launch.Along with announcing the desktop site, Google also took some time to highlight other new features in Android Messages — such as a GIF search button, Smart Replies being available for everyone that uses English, in-line link previews, and a copy button that's attached to a notification when you get a one-time code to log into your bank, Google account, etc.

Here is how to use Android Messages for web

  • Open the Messages app on your smartphone.
  • Tap the overflow menu (three dots in the top right-hand corner).
  • Tap “Messages for Web”.
  • On your computer, open in your browser of choice.
  • On your phone, tap “Scan QR code” and scan the code on the webpage you just opened on your computer.
