The long-rumoured interface allows users to pair a desktop with an Android phone and to send and receive messages via your PC or laptop.

Android Messages website is supported on Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, or Microsoft Edge browsers. Google Podcasts may not be as fully featured as some of the competition, and there's no plans for an iOS app, but it's a solid choice for the basics and the addition of Google smarts could be the killer feature here. Major chat platforms like iMessage and Facebook Messenger, of course, have desktop versions, so it's a no-brainer that Google needed to add desktop support as well. When you start a podcast on your phone, you'll be able to resume it on your Google Home or any other device with your Google account on it. While Chat is not a standalone app, it is a new set of tools within the Android Messages app already installed on handsets.

Users can also use the newly launched Smart Reply feature using the app. It also syncs across devices with Assistant, so that you can pause playback on your phone and pick it up at home, for example.

Google is finally giving Apple's iMessage some competition, by rolling out desktop support for Android Messages.

You can use it to chat one-on-one with friends and family, participate in group texts, and send pictures, videos, and audio messages. After tapping the + button right beside the composing section, you can search for GIFs and send them to other users. Lastly, Android Messages gets a much-anticipated feature which is the ability to copy One Time Passwords (OTP) with a single tap upon receiving a message on Android.
