Google Messages seems to have all the essential features to perform in the middle of the sea to attract all the seagulls to turn its side, but the platform is still missing out on some requisite traits to be on the top. Despite the fact that it doesn’t have high command over other messaging apps globally, it still remains a preferred choice among Android users in the United States.

Recently, Google rolled out an incredible customization option for the app, which allows users to personalize chat bubbles and background colors. Android Police first spotted this feature in the beta version (version 20240308) of Google Messages. However, its availability is subject to Google enabling it via a server-side switch.

Although not universally available yet, this customization option will be rolled out gradually to all users in no time. Users can check if it’s available on their devices by having a sweet little conversation in their three-dot menu within a chat and probing the subsequent menu, or by tapping the three-dot menu followed by “details” within a chat. Once interacted with, users will gain the superpower to select from eight different colors for their chat bubbles and/or backgrounds, offering them options to personalize their messaging experience and potentially differentiate chats.

The new feature quietly follows Google’s recent announcement confirming the integration of the Gemini assistant into Messages and implications for further enhancements, such as the ability to edit messages after sending them, as revealed in a teardown. Accumulating all these updates, Google is trying to snatch a position where it can find an idyllic getaway spot to mellow out.

Essentially, this implies that the introduction of customizable chat bubbles and background colors adds a new realm to the user’s wandering within Google Messages, giving users more control over their messaging environment and potentially fostering greater engagement and personalization in their conversations. As Google continues to iterate and innovate on its messaging platform, users can anticipate more features aimed at enhancing communication and connectivity.
