So that you can answer your SMS and MMS on your computer
A year later, our colleagues in Android Police have found lines of code in version 2.9 of the application indicating that it is preparing to have a web interface. Clearly, it means that we could view and respond to our SMS and MMS from a computer or tablet with ease. The procedure would be quite simple: it would be enough to consult a website, scan a QR code from the application, and voila!
Another major change that accompanies it suggests that Google is tired of the slow deployment of RCS. Also, the application would push users to “write through Wi-Fi” in the future, using a new notification inviting to change protocol.
Where things get really interesting is that Google offers to provide some services rather than waiting for the operators to be ready. A line even carries the words “chat features powered by Google”, giving the impression that Google could offer to act as an intermediary for your email.
Our colleagues also talk about integrated purchasing and payment features. In the United States and other countries where Google Wallet is available, it is already possible to send money to friends, but it would be more a matter of making purchases.
Before giving details of the lines of code scanned, the site has written a disclaimer:
“Disassemblies are based on evidence found inside apks (the Android application package) and are necessarily speculative and usually based on incomplete information. It is possible that the assumptions made here are totally and completely false. Even when the forecasts are correct, there is always a chance that plans can change or be completely canceled. Just like the rumors, nothing is certain until it is officially announced and published.
“The features described are probably not online yet, or can only be online for a small percentage of users. Unless otherwise noted, do not expect to see these features if you are installing the apk. “
