Google Messages app prepares to send in videos through SMS via Google Photos for quality retention

In the latest APK Insight report by 9to5Google, the default SMS/RCS app for Android; Google Messages may be receiving a new feature that lets users send videos over Google Photos in cases where RCS is not available.

The beta version of Google Messages 10.4 reveals a new settings preference called “Google Photos: Share sharper clarity video in the text (SMS/MMS). The outlet was able to enable the feature to appear in the settings menu of the app.

Based on the description of this setting, recipients may receive a Google Photos link to click and watch a video from the sender. The other possibility is that a recipient who receives a Google Photos link to the Messages app may be able to watch the high-quality video right from the chat window. We imagine that iOS users will need to open the link in a browser.

Cloud-sharing of large files is not a new concept. Samsung supports “Link Sharing” which uploads photos and videos to a Samsung server for recipients to download within a limited amount of time through a link that is accessed via any browser.

The first-party solution from Google would be a good idea as videos would no longer deserve to be severely compressed and sent over an outdated protocol.

This would certainly lead to Android users garnering another point in their favor in the ever-lasting iOS V Android battle as the video clips an Android user sends to an IOS user would not look as bad. Let’s be honest, we all have that one friend with an Apple device who looks down upon Android users!
