OK, I know what you’re thinking—the last thing we need is another messaging service from Google.
But this one might actually be good.
Instead of a whole new app, Google is building its new messaging service right into the Photos app.
It’s basically Google Photos DM, as it only works if the person you’re sending a pic to has the Google Photos app installed, like Twitter’s or Instagram’s DM.
Then when you share a message via Photos, you’ll be starting a conversation just like if you sent a MMS through Android Messages.
If the recipient doesn’t have messages, sharing will work like before—creating a dedicated album and then sharing that via a Google Photos link.
