Google Says Android Messages for Web is Now Fully Deployed

Google has now confirmed that Android Messages for Web has been fully deployed to all the users on the platform. Last week, Google announced the web version of Android Messages, allowing users to send and receive texts via the web, same as how WhatsApp Web functions. When the rollout started, Google said that it would reach every user over a week’s time and today, the search giant confirmed that the rollout has been fully completed. Users on the latest Android Messages application will be able to use the Android Messages web version by heading over to https://messages.android.com. If you want to try out the new feature, install the latest Android Messages app from the Google Play Store.

Google implemented Rich Communication Services (RCS) into the Android Messages app for introducing the web version. With this move, Google is taking on Apple’s iMessage service, which has been one of the favourite services for iOS and macOS users for a long time. With Android Messages, Google wants to replicate the same success as Apple, but it’s an extremely tough job as manufacturers often replace the stock Android Messages app with their own SMS application.

Talking about today’s announcement, it’s made by Justin Uberti who is the Principal Engineer of Android Messages at Google. He announced on Twitter as “Android Messages for Web is now fully deployed – make sure you have the latest Messages client, and then head over to https://messages.android.com/ to try it out!”

If you want to try out Android Messages for Web, first of all, head over to the Google Play Store and update the Android Messages app to version 3.3.044 or higher. Post updating the app, head over the website mentioned above and hit the three dot menu on the top right side in the application. You’ll be now presented with ‘Messages for Web’ option. Hit that and scan the QR code displayed on the website. That’s it, you can now send and receive messages on the web via Android Messages.
