Google Messenger 2.0 comes with a new icon, counter for unread messages and more in the luggage

Google-messenger-2_0-new-icon The Google Messenger has just been updated to version 2.0, which means that a lot of changes are missing, which are mainly optical. For example, the messenger icon has been trimmed to round, just as the design of the new pixel phones. You can see the logo here to the left of the text. Also new is the counter for unread messages, which is also likely to work on numerous launchers from other manufacturers such as Sony, Samsung, HTC or even Huawei and even a few (currently still) few third-party launcher supports. These include the Apex and Solid Launcher.

Interestingly, neither the pixel launcher itself, nor the Google Now launcher is currently supported. How in Androidpolice suspected it could also be that this launcher simply do not provide support Badge own and are therefore omitted.


In the Contacts app, the views of normal and “frequently used” contacts were merged. This means that there are now no longer two separate tabs, but has put the so-called “Important contacts” at the beginning of the list. In addition, the telephone numbers are no longer stacked in the case of contacts with several numbers, but are stored in a single contact with the notation “several”.


But two more changes were made to Messenger. If you want to start group conversations, you just have to tap a single contact. The profile is then added to the checkbox and then additional persons can be added to the group. A tap on the arrow then starts the conversation. Speaking of arrows. The “Send” arrow now indicates, by means of a small text under the symbol, whether the SMS to be sent is an MMS.

Otherwise there are a few unspectacular changes in the settings to announce and that the blue used in the app now uses a slightly different color scheme than before. Anyone interested in the teardown of the app, this can be in the source read. The update should arrive during the day anywhere, who does not want to wait, as always uses the APK Mirror .
