The web messaging app comes with its own set of Emojis and stickers unique to Android’s messaging app. It also features a dark and light theme. It also features a drag and drop interface for sending photos.

Update:

Over the weeks, there are more enhancements that are applied to Google’s Android Messaging app. Some of the enhancements include the removal of the same network restriction which requires your phone and your browser to exist on the same local area network.

I am using my phone on a mobile connection while my laptop is left connected to the local wifi network. This enables my family members to send a message to me using the same sim card to send a text message to me.

Synchronization between phone and desktop was also greatly improved. I am still exploring the constant updates to this app by Google team. I, in fact, remove all third-party messaging system on my phone and got stuck with this one.
