With the presentation and release of the Android 4.4 KitKat release, the Google company or rather the team that makes the “right” choices, has decided to remove the SMS manager and unify everything under Hangout. Right or wrong choice, I can't confirm it (you users can confirm if this choice was right or wrong), the fact is that today the Messenger application appeared in Google Play.
Officially, Messenger is nothing more than an SMS and MMS manager, with some extra features. For example you can send group messages, photos, videos and even audio messages.
Main functions Messenger:
- Faster sharing. Select or capture photos and videos directly from the app and easily share them. You can even send audio messages to your contacts.
- Easy search. Search through contacts and conversation threads to find exactly what you are looking for.
- Significant design. New simple, essential, intuitive and pleasant design.
- More control. Possibility to block SMS senders. No interruption when you don't want to be disturbed.
- Other functions. Audio messages, emoji support colorato, colored text threads, message archiving and much more.
As for support, the Messenger application can be installed on any device that has at least the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean or later release.
