Google has changed some calls for its RCS-based Messages app for Android

Google is improving its Messages app for Android. Last month, it revealed a new icon for the app, and now there are new ringtones for sent and received messages. You can change the sound that plays when you receive an incoming message. Go to Settings > Sound & vibration > Default notification sound. Touch the top box and you’ll see a list of sounds you can choose to alert you to an incoming message. Don’t forget to click “save” in the upper right corner of the screen after making your selection.

But even though you can choose a sound to play to announce an incoming message, the Messages app determines the sound to play for incoming and outgoing messages when a thread is open. After weeks of testing, Google replaced the old incoming and outgoing message sounds with shorter and quieter ones.

Other changes on the way include the Rich Communication Service (RCS) capability found in Google Messages to allow users to respond using whatever emoji they want to use instead of choosing from a limited number, including the Rich Communication Service (RCS) capability ) platforms found in Google Messages that allow users to respond using whatever emoji they want to use, rather than choosing from a limited number of seven

The sent message will show a small circle with a check mark inside, and the delivered message will show two circles with a check mark inside each. A message that has been read will still have two circles with ticks, but the circle inside will be colored. This smells like a server-side update that will require Google to flip a switch on the back end to propagate the update; for your part, there is nothing you can do to make it arrive faster.

Hey! We should also note that if you have an Android phone and want to use RCS features, including the ability to send longer messages, higher quality videos and images, receive read receipts, input indicators, and use emoji reactions, you need to opt out Messages app from your current carrier (such as Verizon Messages) and download Google Messages from the Play Store.
