Google Messages Web App Introduces Direct Reply Feature, Enhancing Desktop Messaging Experience

Published

Google Messages for the Web has unveiled an exciting new feature that enables users to directly reply to Rich Communication Services (RCS) chats, bringing it in line with its Android counterpart. The recent update to the Messages web app primarily focuses on enhancing support for updated RCS read receipts and send status, offering a more robust messaging experience.

Previously, users were limited to actions such as copying text, deleting messages, and using a limited range of emojis when interacting with an RCS chat on messages.google.com/web. Responding directly to RCS messages through the desktop web client (PWA) has been a long-standing demand from users, and Google has now fulfilled this request. The latest update positions the chat above the text field, accompanied by a “Reply to message” prompt, delivering a user experience similar to the functionality found in the Android app, which was introduced back in October 2022.

The addition of direct replies is a significant enhancement as the Messages web app has long supported the display of quote replies made on or from mobile devices. This improvement further bridges the gap between mobile and desktop experiences, providing users with a seamless messaging experience across platforms.

However, it is worth noting that the direct reply feature is currently unavailable for Android tablets. In a curious move, the rectangular “Start chat” floating action button (FAB) has been relocated from the top of the conversation list to the bottom-right corner of the column. While the Messages web app generally maintains a high level of feature parity with messages.google.com, the absence of direct replies on tablets raises questions among users.

In a related development, a recent update to Messages for Wear OS showcases a redesigned layout for suggested replies. The new design features thin outlines for the pill-shaped container instead of filled buttons. These changes may hint at forthcoming design language adjustments that could align with the release of Wear OS 4, signaling Google’s commitment to refining the user experience across its ecosystem.

As Google continues to refine its messaging platform, these updates underscore the company’s dedication to providing users with enhanced features and a consistent messaging experience across devices. With the introduction of direct replies on the web and potential upcoming changes in Wear OS, Google Messages continues to evolve as a versatile and user-friendly communication tool.

Rumors Suggest iPhone 16 Pro and 16 Pro Max to Feature 5x Optical Zoom

iPhone 16 Pro and Pro Max Optical 5x Camera Zoom

As we already know the iPhone 15 Pro Max’s tetraprism camera comes with 5x optical zoom. But now, Apple is planning to add it in both Pro models of iPhone 16 i.e. iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max.

This is a rumor that we have already heard from many big sources such as MacRumors, Taiwanese research firm Trendforce, and Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. In today’s press release, Taiwanese research firm Trendforce has adverted regarding this.

Following the successful launch of the iPhone 15 Pro Max with its exclusive Tetraprism telephoto zoom lens, the industry is expected to see an increase in the adoption of periscopic lens modules. Apple plans to bring this advanced hardware upgrade to the iPhone 16 Pro, making it accessible to more users in the Pro series.

The design of the tetraprism camera system in the iPhone 15 Pro Max is folded due to which it can be easily fitted into the smartphone. This tetraprism camera system enables 5x optical zoom and 25x digital zoom. The Pro Max models of iPhones i.e. iPhone 15 Pro Max have a bigger display size i.e. 6.7 inches.

But, on the other hand, if we talk about the Pro models i.e. iPhone 15 Pro, then the display is 6.1 inches as like the iPhone 15 which is small if we compare it with Pro Max. So, as per rumors, Apple will increase the size of the iPhone 16 Pro from 6.1 inches to 6.3 inches to fit the tetraprism camera system in the Pro model of the iPhone 16.

What do you guys think whether we get 5x optical zoom in iPhone 16 Pro and 16 Pro Max? Do let us know in the comment box. Also, tell us whether you like this post or not.

Additionally, Apple is introducing a new cryptographic security feature to its iMessage called PQ3. It is a new encryption protocol which is advanced. PQ3 is designed to protect against potential threats from quantum computing. It helps us to keep our sensitive data safe.

As we know, Apple’s iMessage supports end-to-end encryption like other messaging apps. However, some of the researchers found that existing cryptographic protocols used by messaging apps depend on mathematical problems that can be solved by future quantum computers.

To remain ahead of the cryptographic curve and lighten the risks from future quantum computers, Apple is introducing this new PQ3 messaging protocol. Apple calls this PQ3 protocol as Level 3 security which can offer better protocol protections than other popular messaging apps.

According to Apple, this new PQ3 is a new standard in the security of messaging app which reflects the privacy and security of the company in this quantum computing era. PQ3 feature will be rolled out in the March update, starting with iOS 17.4, iPadOS 17.4, macOS 14.4, and watchOS 10.4. Apple says that this PQ3 feature is already available in the iOS 17.4 public and developer beta testers.
