Latest! Now Google Messages Can Show iMessage Emojis on Android – If you have an Android, you may have seen your friends who have smartphones like iPhone SE are “replying” to your messages. For example, if you send a photo to your friend who has an iPhone, suddenly the response can be a favorite and a photo.
In iMessage, it can be a reaction or an emoji, but not on Android. Prior to 2021, when an Android and iPhone user could exchange messages and give each other emoticons, they were only displayed as descriptions on the Android screen.
In conversations between iPhone users, being the only Android user is really annoying. This is because there are some messages sent from Android and iPhone devices that are displayed differently on different smartphones.
This includes the emoji reactions described. However, thanks to the update Google Post, this seems to be changing too. In the news posted by SlashGear (23/11), Google first saw the beta update in the Google post. This update can properly display emoji from iPhone users to Android users.
Google Messages Emoji Display
As you can see, when Android and iPhone users exchange messages and respond to emoticons, those emoticons can only be displayed as descriptions on the Android screen. For example, when Amsa Studio who has an iPhone sends a thumbs-up emoticon to Ideavone, the text “Like” appears on the smartphone Android.
However, with the update made by Google Messages, emojis that have been sent by iPhone users will display correctly within the Google Messages app. So there won’t be any difference between iMessages and Android, but it seems that Google has also been working on translating these reactive messages to smartphones Android better.
Google Messages is also in the process of updating Beta 10.7 and found a set of code in the settings menu labeled “iOS Reaction Classification”, perhaps it also has something to do with reaction messages received from iOS devices. Google is preparing a smarter way to handle reactions from incoming messages based on recently discovered preferences (which are not yet enabled in the app).
So, when the reply you get later won’t use the iMessage reaction expression, but you will also get an emoji in a response similar to using the reactions feature among Apple users. This feature first appeared in the latest beta update of Google Post.
According to reports, Google has started migrating this feature from beta to standard apps. However, if you haven’t received an update yet, then please be patient as they don’t release it soon. Another feature they’re working on in the Google Messages app is a birthday reminder.
In that feature, Google messages will immediately indicate that it is the birthday of a certain person in your chat list. If you talk to someone whose birthday is on that day. Google will display something like a banner wishing the person a happy birthday.
This banner also has an animation depicting a birthday cake. iMessage now also has and uses a different reaction set than Google Messages in chats. However, an added preference that iOs response view has, which seems to indicate that Google will adapt emoji responses in iMessage to suit Android.
You may have to use your own imagination to guess what the reaction will be. When an iPhone user responds with a “Like” or something similar, the Android user will receive a “Thumbs up” emoji. Another new feature is a birthday reminder in Google Messages.
We’re not sure if the information can be pulled from the contact list, but the recipient’s birthday will be displayed in the chat list. This will make you never forget your friend’s birthday when this feature will be officially launched later.
