Messages makes it easier to help you focus on the conversations that matter

With our Messages app, we’re bringing a seamless and helpful experience on Android.  We’ve heard from many users in India that they receive a lot of different types of messages, from friends and family and businesses sending promotions, receipts, order confirmations and more. With so many incoming texts vying for your attention, it can be difficult to separate the important ones from everything else.  To help you easily manage your messages, today we have two new updates to the Messages app to share.

Messages stay organized

To keep your messages organized, we’re rolling out a brand new way to view them. The new experience uses machine learning technology to automatically sort your messages into categories, including  personal, transactions, OTPs, and offers to help you easily find the messages that matter most the moment you need it. That means, bank transactions and bills will be filtered into the transactions tab, while conversations with saved numbers can be easily located in the personal tab. All of this happens safely on your device so your conversations stay in the app and you can access your categorized messages offline.

Keep your inbox clutter free

Last year, we expanded spam protection to help reduce the volume of unwanted messages by automatically moving suspected spam messages into a spam folder. To continue to keep your inbox free of clutter, we’re also providing the option to automatically delete your one-time passwords (OTPs) 24-hours after they’re received, so you don’t have to spend time deleting them manually. To enable it, just tap continue when you see the suggestion prompt to confirm your selection.

We hope these new updates help you easily manage your messages. We’ll start to roll them out over the coming weeks in English on Android phones in India running Android 8 and newer. These features are optional and can be managed in settings. To try them out, update your Messages app to the latest version or download the app
