Android Messages has received a new update with a dark mode. The latest update for Android messages (version 3.5) also includes a refreshed interface with the material theme elements of Google and the Google Sans font. The fresh interface corresponds to the design of Samsung's own Messaging app with a completely white background. Google also introduced its machine learning based Smart Reply feature that initially arrived in Inbox by Gmail in 2015. The Android messaging app received the same Smart Reply feature in January of this year, but that was limited to Project Fi users.
In addition to other new features, the updated Android Messages app has included the dark mode that lets you completely transform the background from white to black and fonts from black to white. The function is especially useful if you use Android messages at night or in low light, because this reduces the emission of unwanted light on the screen. As Android Police notes, the app shows reverse colors in calls as soon as the dark mode is turned on, while messages you have sent to a recipient are always displayed in a light blue bubble and a darker blue font.
You can turn on dark mode in the updated messaging app by pressing the menu button with three dots in the top right corner of the screen and then select the Dark mode option. By following the same process, you can also switch back to normal mode.
Apart from the dark mode, the updated Android messaging app brings a Material Theme-based interface with a completely white background and a Google Sans font. The renewed interface also replaces the original & # 39; + & # 39; FAB by a larger button that by default the text & # 39; Start chat & # 39; shows. The text will be replaced with the new message icon as soon as you scroll down.
The updated Android Messages app also brings a Smart Reply feature that you can enable by going to the app settings. The function uses your recent messages to show you relevant suggestions. However, Google assures users that it will not save the messages to offer suggestions.
As we said, the Smart Answer feature was initially a part of Gmail, although Google released it to Android Messages earlier this year, but only for Project Fi Users.
The updated Android app is available for all compatible devices via Google Play. In the meantime, you can download the APK Mirror APK file to get the latest experience for the official rollout of your device.
