Google Messages tests reactions and wants to improve communication via SMS with iPhones

As much as Apple is not very willing to collaborate with Google on the RCS standard, the search giant has been working to make the exchange of SMS between Android smartphones and iPhones more “friendly”.

The novelty was discovered by Reddit user u/Jabjab345, ​​and it allows Google Messages users can react to messages sent by iPhones.

With the small change, the communication barrier was broken, since before only iPhone users could react to texts sent from Android.


According to those who have already had access to the new feature, Google is “giving back to Apple”. That’s because the author of the message – the iPhone user – will get the following text back: “(emoji) to (message).

That is, something that can make the experience somewhat boring, since each new reaction must come in the format of the text above.

For those who don’t remember, Apple has implemented something similar in the past. As a result, when an iPhone user reacted to a message from the Google app, a text was sent to the author. To solve the problem, Google itself developed a way to “translate” this and make the emoji appear next to each SMS.

For now, Google has been testing the new feature with random users, and the update is apparently being sent via the server.

Of course, this dispute over communication via SMS may not be of much interest to Europeians, since WhatsApp reigns supreme here and is the most used messenger by Europeians.

On the other hand, in the United States SMS is still very popular and this lack of integration between platforms has irritated many people there.
