Microsoft last month announced Your Phone app to enable a "seamless transition of content" between the Windows 10 and Android phones, which includes things like messages.

Google has confirmed that it will be rolling out Messages for web, allowing users to send and receive text as well as RCS (Rich Communication Services) messages from their computers. When it's ready, your phone will vibrate. If you don't use your Android Messages account for 14 days, you'll automatically be signed.

Android Messages on the web has two aspects: your conversations on the left, and the chat messages pane on the right.

In addition to this, the company also stated how to search for and send gif files using the app. You can also browse existing threads and resume a conversation from this side. Text, images, and stickers will be supported in the web version of the service.

The new feature is being rolled out over the next week, and it works in much the same as WhatsApp Web. It's simultaneously starting a program that will help grow "diversity and perspectives" in podcasts with an independent advisory board as its guide, so you may see more shows from underrepresented groups as well as fresh ideas that improve the podcasting business. This should work on Google Home devices and more.
