Google Messages receives One UI-inspired upgrade on recent Samsung flagships

Google’s Messages application is getting an upgrade on Samsung’s Galaxy S21 gadgets, aligning its appearance with Samsung’s other One UI software, XDA Developers reports. Screenshots posted by XDA and clients on Reddit show the application’s home screen has been divided into two sections: an upper data area with an unread messages counter and a lower section with links to every discussion.

The update follows Samsung’s decision to utilize Google’s messaging application as the default for its S21 lineup in select markets. With the redesign the Messages application currently seems as though it has a place as a default, with a look that is like other Samsung software like its Notes or Settings applications. Be that as it may, in the US, Samsung Messages is as yet the default messaging application.

9to5Google notes that Google has been testing the redesign beforehand, yet that it’s currently getting a broad rollout on S21 gadgets outside of the US. With the application’s appearance now more in accordance with Samsung’s design style, it will be fascinating to see whether Samsung is tempted to make Google’s application its default within the US.
