Google Messages now come built-in on Android smartphones, and it’s set as the default messaging app. Messages are the official app for texting (SMS, MMS) and chat (RCS) from Google, and it comes for free.

Compared to other messaging apps for Android, Google Messages has better features. The messaging app allows you to send group texts and share pictures, GIFs, emojis, stickers, videos, and audio messages to your friends.

Recently, while using Google Messages, we discovered another best feature called ‘ Chat Bubbles’. Chat bubbles on Google Messages are a replica of Facebook Messenger’s ‘chat head’ feature. When you enable Chat bubbles in Google Messages, the message will pop up on screen in a floating bubble if a message arrives.
