Android Messages are getting better, now have features like whatsapp

Google is all set to bring new features for your simple android massager in your phone, which will bring it closer to the popular messaging apps.
According to a post in Google Blog yesterday, soon the messenger in the Android phone will have a smart feature to easily search through the history of your chats.
Say for example you are looking for a particular picture or video that someone sent it few months back. Well, the best way till now was scroll through your contacts and hope that you will spot it, but from this week onwards if you need to find a particular chat history, you can search the name of the person with the help of special search icon and see all the chat history with that person.
So, see this is so easy.
The feature will allow you to tap on a search icon within the app and select a specific contact to “see your messaging history with them, including one-to-one and group conversations, and all the photos, videos, addresses or links you shared with each other,” wrote Google.
But that does not mean that your information is being stored or being watched upon. You can still go through all the chats history manually. This search icon feature just helps to make your work easier by bringing it all in one place.
The location links are a nice touch, but otherwise, messengers like Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, and WeChat have long since had media and link search functionality as part of their core features.
Though, it is obvious that this feature is not going to add any new users to Android messengers, but it is still a good way to upgrade the existing users.
