Android users can now message from the web

The Android Messages web service will be a see users pairing their phone to their browser via a QR Code similarly to how Google paired their Allo client to the web past year.

The main component to getting this working is missing though, with the option to scan a QR Code not yet present in the Android Messages app.

Google says to expect Android Messages for web to go live "over the next week", which really just means a slow rollout of an update that enables it, as well as a server-side switch for you to have access.

Trump admin. approves $50 billion tariffs on China
Beijing is imposing the tariffs in two steps as Washington is doing - picking the same amounts and same dates the U.S.is choosing. In April, Washington said it will impose 25 percent tariffs on 1,300 Chinese goods that are worth $50 billion.

Google is starting to plug the gaps, bit by bit, in what's been an all-over-the-place messaging product until now. However, this option section of the Messages app is not live yet, and the service will only become fully available when this happens. You'll also be able to attach images.

This last feature is also similar to a new addition coming to iMessage in iOS 12. Supported browsers at launch include Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Microsoft Edge, Google has noted.

The company also announced a few other features that will come to the Messages app over the next week, including built-in GIF search; Smart Replies, which suggest English language text responses and emoji for now; preview web links in conversations; and the ability to copy one-time passwords with a tap. If you work on a desktop or laptop computer a lot, you can soon send and receive messages without looking at your phone. The next time you receive a TAC number, you can tap on copy and then paste the 6-digit pin for online transactions.
