Apps like WhatsApp and Telegram have supported profiles for years now.
Google Messages is the company’s flagship messaging and texting app, coming preloaded on phones from a variety of manufacturers. The app already supports a host of RCS features, and it looks like we might finally get another staple instant messaging (IM) feature.
Redditor seeareeff (h/t: GSMArena) uncovered evidence of user profiles coming to the Google Messages app. The user uploaded a screenshot of a profiles menu in the app, containing options for profile sharing, your profile visibility, and contact-related notifications. These options don’t work right now, but you can nevertheless check out the screenshot below.
