Google Working on Texting from Browser
« on: February 12, 2018, 12:13:52 pm »
Google is stepping up their game with Android Messages and will soon allow you to pair your phone with your PC and then use your PC to send actual SMS's. This integration is what HP rocked with the Elite X3 Windows Phone and is something that other companies lack. Yes, there are 3rd party applications that do something similiar, but I've tried many of them and nothing worked as good as the Windows solution. Still, this is a step in the right direction. Also coming in Android Messages is the ability to send payments directly using Google Pay - or something similiar. 

   All told, Google appears to be transforming Android Messages into an Allo-like app, except for mobile SMS texts instead of web-based ones. It could also be monetizing it to a degree via Google Pay. Considering the power it yields over the Android smartphone ecosystem, that could amount to a lot of dollars. Take all the changes with some salt, though, because APKs don't necessarily mean features are set in stone, and some of the aforementioned features are still half-baked.Source: Engadget
