Google Messages supports bubbles on Android.Screenshot: Google Messages
If you’re using Android 11 or later, your messaging apps can use bubbles, which are little pop-ups indicating that a new chat is incoming. Google Messages includes support for bubbles, and you can enable them (either for the app as a whole or only for specific contacts) by tapping the three dots (top right) and choosing Settings then Bubbles.
Get Smart Replies and Actions
Google can deploy on-device artificial intelligence to bring up smart repliesquick suggested responses based on the last message or two, in Google Messages like Gmail does for emails. If you’re pressed for time, you can tap these smart replies to reply in affirmative or negative, or to send a note of thanks, or to deliver an appropriate emoji.
There’s a related feature called suggested actions, which lets you create a calendar event if you mention a time and date, for example, or start a Google Duo call, all with one touch in the conversation window. To enable or disable either of these features, tap on the three dots in the top right corner of the main screen, then pick Settings and Suggestions.
