Google Messages adds camera shortcut to homescreen

Last month, Google Messages updated its appearance and included a few new capabilities. Big G has made available a camera shortcut for the Messages app, which allows users to snap a picture and instantly attach it to a message. The camera icon uses the same style as the rest of the application, and it is located to the left of the magnifying glass. To rapidly snap a picture, it just launches the built-in app on your phone. With Google not yet completely launching the fullscreen “Select recipients” redesign, you snap and are presented with the “Select conversation” user interface.

Currently, Messages is written next to the recognizable, four-colored “G” that is displayed in the app bar’s left corner. The magnifying glass symbol and the profile icon are the only two icons located in the bar’s right corner on the other side. Google Messages is experimenting with a number of additional features in addition to the shortcut for the camera. The online app now integrates Google Accounts, has animated emojis, a new voice recorder, and a Google Account connection for the online client. This is one of the features that Google Messages is currently testing.

Google uses the Play Store to push RCS, but Apple still says no

The largest modification was the redesigned homescreen, which did away with the navigation menu. The default camera app on your phone is opened by tapping the Google Messages app’s camera shortcut, which is situated on the app bar next to the search symbol. You may select which chat to send the snapshot to once you’ve taken it. For those who wish to share images quickly, this feature, which is now only available to a small number of users, may be helpful. With only three icons, the app bar still seems tidy, but more might make it unorganized.
