Google To Bring Android Messages To Your Computer's Web Browser (APK Teardown)

Doze Mode

Thanks to Android Police's APK teardown, however, the latest version of Google's texting app lays the groundwork for a web interface and much more.

Android Messages app, which is a free texting app by Google, could let users send and receive message through their desktop or laptop.

From the now dormant code, it appears users will scan a QR code after visiting a website in a web browser to link his or her phone. It's only one of the updates released after learning Google Duo would be integrated with Android Messages and the time update stopped notifications for some users. The service will then link to the smartphone to send messages. Take for example apps like WhatsApp, Viber, LINE, KakaoTalk, Facebook Messenger, and Allo, all of whom have either a web version or desktop version of their app available.

You may soon be able to use your browser to send texts if recent reports from Android Police and XDA prove accurate. There are also signs that something called Google Enhanced Messaging, probably similar Smart Replies for Gmail, Allo and Inbox, is coming to Android Messages. Teardowns are often based on bits of information and they speculate what should make its way to the next version, but can't guarantee that the features tested will make it to the final update. It might support all the existing browsers like Chrome, FireFox and Safari etc. This is as close of a mention to Rich Communication Services (RCS) as we have seen with Messages.

RCS typically requires carrier implementation. Text over Wi-Fi and data, ' which is a description of RCS. Unlike Hangouts and other Google messaging apps, Duo accounts are tied ...

If Google can - finally - put the pieces of the messaging puzzle the company has created for itself in the right spot, it's surely going to attract some iOS users on the edge of making the jump, especially if Google doesn't lock users into just one platform.

The vast majority of Alphabet's revenue continues to come from Google and its various business, most notably its advertising network - revenue from Google's ad business grew by 21 per cent from a year ago and accounts for 84 per cent of Alphabet's total revenue.
