Google launches Messages, here are 5 new features

Google announced earlier this year that Android Messages users would soon be able to send and receive text messages from your PC desktop.

All you would need to do is access the Android Messages web app, and sync your smartphone to any laptop with a browser.

The web client is now active on the internet, meaning that the only thing keeping users from using Android Messages Web is the update to the mobile app itself.

Yolanda Choates, a US Customs and Border Protection spokeswoman, directed questions to the Dimmit County Sheriff's Office. A criminal complaint said the driver in that case admitted to investigators that he traveled from Laredo to San Antonio .

Google says the changes are rolling out starting today, but you know what that means: server-side rollouts.

For the unaware, Smart Reply is a service by Google which automatically suggests quick text or emoji responses to your messages.

The service is part of the tech giant's grand scheme of "Chat" a messaging client aiming to replace the default SMS messaging application on Android phones. Users can also send emojis, and Stickers, features that were missing on the standard SMS platform. The menu will be available by clicking on the hamburger icon in the messages app.

From the left, you can tap New conversations to search for a contact and start a new message thread with them.

Two more features in the new Messages app are previews of links sent from friends, and the ability to copy one-time security codes from the app with a tap.

The update will add a "Messages for web" section in the Android Messages settings.
