Google is rolling out a fresh update for Android devices. The new update comes for the Google Messages application, which will be delivering two new features to your devices. The first is the auto delete OTPs messages and the other one is the sorting feature, which is going to sort all your messages into categories. This will make it easier for users to not manually segregate or delete the promotional or One Time Passwords that we receive from businesses or while making money transactions and logging in accounts.
The news comes by way of a blog post by the company, which has announced a very important update for the Google Messages application to make text or messages on your device simpler to consume.
The blog post says, “With our Messages app, we’re bringing a seamless and helpful experience on Android. We’ve heard from many users in India that they receive a lot of different types of messages, from friends and family and businesses sending promotions, receipts, order confirmations and more. With so many incoming texts vying for your attention, it can be difficult to separate the important ones from everything else. To help you easily manage your messages, today we have two new updates to the Messages app to share.”
In order to keep your inbox clutter-free, the Messages app has received a feature in which it uses machine learning technology to automatically sort your messages into categories, including personal, transactions and OTPs. The new functionality will filter out bank transactions and bills to the transitions tab while the conversations with saved numbers can be easily located in the personal tab. The decluttering of the messages will not hamper any of your conversations they will stay in a device but will be more manageable.
We all have a habit of not deleting one-time passwords (OTPs) from our phones after money transitions, payments or account log-in is complete. So now the Google Messages app will take the lead by auto-deleting the OTPs from your phone. The application will provide the option to automatically delete your one-time passwords (OTPs) 24-hours after they’re received, so you don’t have to spend time deleting them manually. To enable the feature, just tap continue when you see the suggestion prompt to confirm your selection.
As per the company, the new update for the Messages app will be pushed out over the coming weeks (in English) on Android phones in India running Android 8 or newer. These features are optional and can be managed in settings, too. To try them out, update your Messages app to the latest version or download the app here.
