Google Messages Adding New Features
Google has been updating its messaging app with new features, and one potential addition is the ability to view people’s profiles. This was discovered through an APK deep-dive, so it’s not officially confirmed by Google yet. The feature could still undergo changes or be removed altogether, but stay tuned for updates.
Viewing User Profiles
Even though Google isn’t a social media company, it still has user profiles that display a picture and information. Currently, you can only view your own profile in Google Messages by tapping your profile picture. However, the hidden code suggests that the app might soon allow users to view other people’s profiles, customize profile settings, and see contacts’ profile pictures automatically.
