    It's actually been around for a while (at least, in the US). Messenger is supposed to handle SMS/MMS and group messaging better than Hangouts (although I've never encountered any significant problems with the latter). I prefer Hangouts, since I like using it for IMs and group Hangouts.

    Nice, simple app. Sometimes simple is a Good Thing. No problems with it. This is the Messenger app that comes on Nexus phones.

    Android since v1.0. Linux user since 2001.

    Is it preinstalled on the Nexus 6? It isn't on the Nexus 5 (or, I assume, the Nexus 4 either).

    I'm pretty sure if Messenger didn't come installed from the factory on the Nexus 5 and 6, then it came as the default SMS app with Android 5.1.

    But I installed it manually a long time ago. And honestly, if Messenger didn't come as the original SMS app on the 5 and 6, then I can't remember anymore what did.

    Android since v1.0. Linux since 2001.

    I have never noticed this app in the Play Store. That's a bit strange...

    It's OK. But hangouts has kind of beaten it. In all honesty I cannot remember that last time I used either as nearly all my friends are on WhatsApp.

    Definitely the best app for SMS on Android (it is the official app for sending SMS in Android anyway -- Google recommends you use Messenger for SMS/MMS rather than Hangouts).

    yesterday I received a new mobile phone ( an "One Plus X" ) which has the Messenger of Google preinstalled.
    The SMS sending for those without internet connection not receive on their mobile phones. But I get the ones they send me. It is a configuration problem? Where and how?
    I appreciate the help.

    I really like it. Again, its nice and simple. Does exactly what I want from an SMS app and sends/receives messages. Never been a fan of Hangouts.

    I keep missing messages with Google Messenger, as notifications don't show up on my lock screen. (Samsung S7 Edge)

    I have Settings > Notifications on lock screen -> Messenger set to "on"

    Also, Settings > Notifications > Messenger set to "on"

    Is there anything else needed or is this a bug?

    Have never used Google Messenger before, but it certainly looks like it has merit.

    Tried using this earlier today and had to switch back to Hangouts. For whatever reason, my texts were not teaching their targets. Could be a Fi issue. Not exactly sure what to think.
