Last year at MWC we saw the first big steps to Assitant integration in Messages. That evolution continued with RCS and we believe, soon to also have reactions. It seems the next step in that fully unified Google communication pathway is to add quick add and launch buttons to other Google feature apps.
There are multiple reports — primarily from the USA at this time — that users are seeing new buttons in conversations. The quick-add button prompts users to attach recent photos as well as a quick launch button to initiate a Duo call. The attach recent photo button appears above your text input box when you’ve taken a photo within the last few minutes only.
Both seem to be progressively rolling out to users at the moment, only some of our team have seen it and we’ve had no tips from readers yet to report the additional features.
What would you like to see from Google’s messaging platform to make it indispensable for your daily use?
