If you happen to’ve ever needed to take care of reactions from an iPhone person when utilizing Google Messages, your day is about to get so much higher.
Final week, code discovered throughout the newest beta of Google Messages on Android pointed to the likelihood that the app would work extra seamlessly with iMessage when somebody on an iPhone reacted to a message.
Within the latest beta replace to Google Messages, model 10.7, we have discovered that Google could also be getting ready a extra intelligent means of dealing with incoming iMessage reactions. In response to a newly found desire (not but dwell within the app), Google Messages ought to be capable to intercept incoming iMessage reactions and as a substitute present them as “emoji.”
At present, 9to5Google confirmed that some customers are already seeing the distinction. Whereas the app used to show the response as a separate message, some customers at the moment are discovering that reactions from somebody on an iPhone now present up as a response on their Android cellphone.
It seems Google has already slowly begun rolling out Messages’ capacity to interpret iMessage reactions to its personal reactions. Courtesy of screenshots given to 9to5Google by reader Jvolkman, we discovered that reactions despatched from an iPhone have been accurately interpreted by Google Messages similar to reactions despatched through RCS.
It is nonetheless unclear what Google Messages will do with all the totally different reactions obtainable from iMessage. Not all the reactions are constant throughout the 2 messaging providers so it is unclear how Google will deal with reactions it doesn’t provide. Regardless, it is a good step for all of us who dwell in an iMessage and RCS world.
