The Android 5.0 Messenger app just arrived on the Google Play Store. The new messenger app is the new default app for sending/receiving SMS and MMS messages on android 5.0. And thankfully, Google has not kept it a Lollipop exclusive.
The new Messenger app is completely based on Material design and is supported on all Android devices running Android 4.1 and above. Below are some of the major features of the app:
- Faster sharing: Select or take pictures and videos directly from the app and share easily. 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.
- Purposeful design: New, fluid, material design that is intuitive and delightful.
- More control: Ability to block SMS senders. No interruptions when you don’t want them!
- More features: audio messages, emoji support
The Messenger is available to download for everyone on Play Store, however if you can’t access Play Store for some reason, then just grab the Messenger apk file from the link below and install it normally like you’d install any other apk file on your Android device.
