Google Podcasts: Everything you need to know!

Enable Android Messages for web Google Podcasts: Everything you need to know!

Messages for web A highly anticipated and top-requested feature, "Messages for web" will be rolled out starting Tuesday, allowing Android users to sync their smartphone's text messages with a desktop. Unlike the Messages app for macOS which Apple uses for desktop iMessage access, Google has instead made a web-based chat client. You also need a computer, either a PC or a Mac, and it must have one of the following web browsers: Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, or Microsoft Edge.

Google's official podcast app rolls out today - with typical Google SEO genius or irony, depending upon your outlook, it's simply called Google Podcasts.

However messages that are sent using RCS are not encrypted end-to-end in the same way iMessage, WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger exchanges are. Google then added podcasts to its Google Play Music app back in 2016. The Smart Reply feature suggests quick text, emoji responses to a user's messages when they're texting, to save time.

Over the past few years, Google has been working on improving the messaging experience on Android-from working with carriers to upgrade their networks to RCS to building new features. And also, this may not be something to be excited for unless you actively use SMSs in 2018. Once you've tapped a Smart Reply suggestion, it sends immediately.


The premise of this tool is that it will allow you to send a received text via desktop, pretty much like the WhatsApp's web counterpart (or the iMessages).

Google has finally launched its long-rumored podcasting app as the company doubles down on its investments in the audio-focused format. To avoid getting charged for data while using this feature, be sure to connect your phone to Wi-Fi.

Select "Messages for web" in the menu of the mobile app.

Android users can get started by visiting the new Android Messages website. It's likely that Google will soon update the web app to support additional features. After tapping the + button right beside the composing section, you can search for GIFs and send them to other users.
