Google Messages recently got a Material You makeover, as well as a new account switcher. According to the most recent user reports, Google Messages will soon receive another intriguing feature. Google Messages, according to a screenshot shared by Reddit user u/seeareeff, will allow you to create your own user profile.
It should be noted that the profile page was discovered by Esper’s Mishaal Rahman. This profile page was discovered by searching for profiles in the app’s Settings menu. The page is currently inoperable. However, once the page is operational, Google Messages users will be able to create their own profile complete with a photo, name, and email address.
According to the screenshot, users will not be able to choose who can view their profiles. However, as the feature matures, it is possible that it will include a visibility option to choose who can view the profile: Public, Contacts, or Only You. If you set your privacy to ‘Public,’ everyone, including those to whom you respond, can see your profile.
Google Messages’ new delivery indicators coming to more beta users
There is a ‘Notifications For Contact Updates’ toggle that allows you to be notified when any of your contacts changes their profile. And the ‘Notifications For New Contacts Found’ option will notify you when a new contact is discovered.
While the Google Messages create your profile feature is still in the works, the messaging app is rolling out a new feature to more beta users. Google Messages is rolling out delivery indicators to more people following initial testing. You will see a single circle indicator for sent messages. You will see two circle indicators side by side for delivered messages. In addition, the indicators fill up as the text is read.
These new Google Messages delivery indicators will appear on devices enrolled in the Google Messages beta programme. There is no ETA for the features, particularly the Google Messages create your own profile feature, which appears to be still in development.
