Google Messenger
We all still use SMS right? Right?? Well, for those of us who do, Google has added a new trick to the Google Messenger bag, offering users the option to reply to SMS messages from the notification.

The notifications look the same, except when expanded, you can now hit ‘Reply’ and then enter in a reply – all without actually opening up the Messenger app. Handy for when you’re in a meeting, or running and don’t want to interact with your phone a huge amount. There’s limitations – you can’t reply with an MMS – but if you need to you can always just open the full app from the shortcut.

Look out for this in the latest version of Google Messenger which is rolling out now.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Good timing, now that Textra just became ad-supported/paid.

Might give Messenger a shot again…
