As a part of Samsung’s improving partnership with Google, the company started shipping the Galaxy S21 series with the Google Messages app and Google Discover Feed. Google has now released a new update to its messaging app, which brings One UI-inspired design to Galaxy S21 series devices.

The latest update to Google’s Messages app brings its design more in line with One UI, featuring a large header and empty space at the top. The app now makes it easier to reach even the recent message thread. This is an effort to make Google’s messaging app feel like a native part of One UI on the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and the Galaxy S21 Ultra.

Google’s Messages app comes pre-installed on all Galaxy S21 series smartphones, and it is up to users to choose between Samsung’s or Google’s app as their default choice. Google’s Messages app also features RCS (Rich Communication Services) integration, which means that users can send and receive high-resolution images, videos, emojis, and stickers to other RCS users.

Samsung and Google recently partnered to bring Google Nest integration to SmartThings. The South Korean firm also released the SmartThings app for Android Auto, letting users control their smart home devices right from their car’s dashboard. Smart TVs from Samsung also feature Google Assistant as an option for voice commands.
