Google Messages Update Brings New Home Screen Design

Published

on


Google Messages is an original app of Mountain View, which provides a lot of important features that make the conversation easier. For your information, the app supports RCS (rich communication services), and you can also communicate offline with the help of network carrier connections. Google, from time to time, rolls out new updates for its messaging services to introduce some new changes.

Google Messages UI design refreshed with an update

Google has rolled out a new update for its messaging app, which brings a newly designed home screen. If we take the upper part of the screen here, the search frail is removed and instead a search icon as a magnifying glass is added. Google has also updated search, which means you will get more accurate results. Now the branding of Google is stuck on the left side of the top bar.

Additionally, when you tap on the search, it will give you a grid of different categories instead of a carousel. It also provides shortcuts for your starred texts and chats here, along with features including Unread, Known, Unknown, images, videos, places, and links. Now the branding of Google is stuck on the left side of the top bar.

Google Calendar Gets a Graphical Overhaul

With the new modernized UI, Google has also removed the navigation drawer and moved all its functionality to the account section. It means you will find options like archive, spam, and blocked, mark as all read, and device pairing by tapping on the profile avatar, which is located at the top right side of the screen.

It is not clear that the new home screen change will be available after any specific update because some users are already getting the new changes without updating the app. Probably this will be available through the server side, so there is no need to update the app. But if you haven’t updated the app for some months, then it is recommended to update the app to the latest version to get more useful features.

Google is constantly releasing new updates for its infotainment system, and within a short period after its launch, Android Auto has already reached the 12th generation. With each new update, the company aims to innovate the system and elevate the overall user experience. Now, moving forward, Android Auto 12.2 beta is live for Android devices.

Android Auto 12.2 beta: what’s new 

Android Auto doesn’t sometimes bring significant changes with new updates; sometimes, it gets some internal changes that users may need to see visually. However, it may provide some improvement under the hood, enhancing the performance and stability of different existing applications. Meanwhile, if we talk about the changelog, the company has brought the same old changelog, so we cannot say directly what changes it comes with. Still, we hope the update may bring some innovation that will give Android Auto a new direction and make it more compatible with more applications.

How to get the latest beta update 

To get the latest beta update of Android Auto, you just need to go to the Google Play store and search for Android Auto. Now, scroll down to the beta program section. Here, you get the Join button. Just tap on it. Once the registration is confirmed, you will get a new update. Install it and enjoy the latest developments. Alternatively, you can also join the beta program through this link.

Samsung’s Good Lock is an application with an endless troop of software customization options that significantly makes Samsung’s One UI much better and highly customizable. This app has been around for years, while Samsung always focuses on integrating several useful features or modules along with certain relevant enhancements that ensure users a custom software experience. However, Samsung carried away two most useful features from its Good Lock’s Theme Park, but they’re probably coming back. 

After updating the Good Lock app recently, Samsung significantly separated two useful features from the theme park, including support for image customization folders and keycap shapes. Meanwhile, users faced a lot of inconvenience due to the changes held within the Good Lock’s theme park. Now, it appears like Samsung is thinking about restoring these features to Theme Park. 

Samsung could bring back the customizable folders and keycaps to Theme Park:

According to the information provided by Good Lock’s moderator from Samsung, some changes have been performed within the Theme Park module that certainly removed the ability to create customizable folders and keycaps. Meanwhile, the team is thoroughly reviewing this issue and could consider whether they could revert the features back to Theme Park. 

However, the moderator further stated that they are not sure whether both features will return to the theme park. In addition, it’s possible that Samsung could bring them back to the Good Lock’s functionality due to their usefulness and after listening to the user’s feedback.
