The Galaxy Watch 4 and the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic are the world’s first smartwatches to run Wear OS 3.0 out of the box. This new operating system version brings various design, speed, and efficiency improvements. To match the design of the new OS, Google is now rolling out an improved version of the Google Messages app.
The internet search giant has started rolling out the new Google Messages app (version 9.2.030) widely, and the app is available to both new and old smartwatches. It means that you can install it on your Galaxy Watch 4 series or a non-Samsung smartwatch running Wear OS 2.0. The app’s new design has UI elements with rounded corners. Moreover, the app ditches the blue color for a true black theme.
The whole UI of the Google Messages app now matches the look of the new Google Maps and YouTube Music apps. You can start new chat threads, reply to incoming messages using a keyboard or quick replies, delete messages, and even call the person in the chat thread. If you don’t like using the Samsung Messages app that is pre-installed on the Galaxy Watch 4 series, you can replace it with Google Messages.
