Google finally rolls out spam protection feature for text messages

Android Messages Spam Protection Feature Is Rolling Out To Some Users

After that, Google uses this to detect spam messages. From those who already have the new Spam Protection, we've learned that it comes as a popup notification. In that regard, this is different to spam reports manually sent to Google, which include the full message sent by the spammer. Finally, Google has started rolling out the feature for the Android version of Messages app for certain users, as per the report from Android Police.

A number of users were noticing a prompt called "New!" The American Corporation immediately after updating the app warns that a new opportunity can sometimes not work correctly, because its use can lead to false positives, which are real SMS, not spam, will cease to be correctly displayed.

With spam protection enabled, some info about your messages is sent to Google without including the actual content or your phone number. You can do all these and even more by simply searching by contact or type of content.

Lady Gaga lit up the extravagant outfits
Enigma and Gaga both focus on the past as a way of explaining the future, Rolling Stone revealed. Although there was not a futuristic alter-ego of a star, but her images have surprised all fans.

But in the coming weeks, the service could be shifted to "messages.google.com", the report said, citing an upcoming change to Chrome OS. If this app is to be Google's latest iMessage challenger - following on from the likes of Hangouts and Allo - spam controls could be another feature to tempt users in. Google notes that data collected from users is aimed at improving future spam detection. Once introduced, users can disable this feature in the Settings and then in the Advanced menu.

We will keep you updated once the feature is available for all.

While you wait for spam protection to arrive on your phone, you still have the option of blocking and reporting numbers that sent you junk messages.
