Android users are reporting a strange problem and are complaining to Google that their SMS on Google Messages app are getting deleted automatically. “I restarted my phone and when I opened my Messages app all my conversations were gone. Tried restarting the app and then my phone again. They’re all gone… not good,” complained a user to Google support forum.
The Google Messages app is also facing several other bug issues like messages and contact names getting interchanged along with frequent app crashes. In order to solve the problem people are mostly resetting their phones or simply switching to a different messaging app.
Interestingly, these issues have been troubling Google for quite some time and it is not restricted to just one particular device or brands. Phones like Pixel 2, 3, Moto G series phones, Huawei P20 series and others are facing the issue.
Google has recently introduced a spam protection feature in its Messages app for Android users. “With Spam protection for Messages, we warn you of suspected spam and unsafe websites we’ve detected. If you see a suspected spam warning in Messages you can help us improve our spam models by letting us know if it’s spam or not,” Google explained.
Google also provides the option to block the entire conversation too.Messages tries to detect suspected spam and lets you block and report spammers.
Meanwhile, Google’s dedicated section that aims to provide easy access to the information related to coronavirus (COVID-19) is now live in India. The feature that was announced on March 21 was first rolled out for the US — along with the special website it has created it has created with all the relevant information about this global pandemic.
Now when you search for COVID-19 or coronavirus on Google — through both desktop or mobile — you will see a Google-created comprehensive section at the top right above the other search results.
