With their messaging systems, it has never been easier for iOS and Android users to communicate transparently. The biggest problem is the reactions to messages, which are seen differently in each system.
This situation is about to get a simple fix, with Google getting involved in its implementation. Soon, Android Messages will translate iMessage reactions as emojis so everyone will see the same thing in any app.
The ability to reply to messages is not new to Android. Google introduced this new feature in RCS in 2020, so users can express themselves clearly in every message they receive, without having to type anything.
This functionality is already present on iOS and iMessage, with the idea that these platforms can communicate. Unfortunately, this was not what was seen, as the messaging app literally translates what was sent, far from what users expected.
This scenario is changing and a change has already been seen in the latest beta version, which is now being expanded to everyone. This will allow the messaging app to correctly translate the sent feedback.
Although there are now these emojis to show what iMessage users are sending in response, this translation is not entirely reliable. Many of these emojis are different from the sent ones, they are only close to what you would expect.
Google also wants to show the user that these emojis don't come from their Messages app, so they created a simple form. When you tap on those interactions, a notification will appear on the screen that says "Translated from iPhone".
this improvement, It is already being extended to everyone For Android users, it improves more Google services. Simple translation now allows users of Messages and iMessage to communicate better and more clearly.
