Google Messages is trying to add a feature to highlight unread messages.

Google Messages

Now Google Message will highlight your unread messages. It will show a blue dot to the right of the timestamp of an unread message. A tipter discovered the change in the app’s most current beta version, v10.6.240. In the Android and iOS versions of Gmail, unread messages are frequently represented as dots or notification badges. The purpose of this function is to call the user’s attention to unread messages. Google Messages now displays unread messages in strong print, which users may overlook.

Important Points:

  • Google Message will highlight your unread messages in a new way.
  • It will show a blue dot to the right of the timestamp of an unread message.
  • For Gmail and WhatsApp, the notification badge-like functionality is already available.

The blue dot will be identical to the notification badge and will show to the right of a message, according to Android Police. Using dots to represent unread messages isn’t a new concept; it’s used by a number of applications, including WhatsApp. It also allows users to mark messages as unread so that they are prompted to read them again.

Previously, it was claimed that Google Messages was testing the nudges function, which was first launched in Gmail in 2018. The nudges function prompts users to respond to emails it deems relevant. New strings discovered in the newest beta version for the Google Messages app imply the program would soon display messages you might have neglected to answer to at the top of the inbox, according to Android Central. It will also display messages that you may want to follow up on. Google also included new features to its messaging service, like automatic OTP erasure and message categorization. Google Messages allows users to have their one-time passwords (OTPs) automatically deleted 24 hours after they receive them.

Few Other Updates of Google Apps:

Meanwhile, the iOS version of the Gmail app will gain a new widget with the same functionality as the Android version. Google released an image of the inbox, which includes the sender and topic of three recent emails. On the user’s home screen, the new widget will display the senders and subjects of the user’s most recent emails, according to Google. The new widget will be available in the coming weeks, according to Google.

The move follows the cancellation of a previous version of the widget by Gmail for iOS. That was not good enough. Google also sent out the updates for Google Meet and Google Sheets. Picture-in-Picture functionality is also available in Google Meet for iOS, making multitasking easier for iOS users.
