Google Messages is preparing a redesign of the one-line text field

Google Messages is preparing a redesign of the one-line text field

Late last year, Messages introduced a redesign of the compose box that introduced the shortcuts bar. A new design for Google Messages is in the works that reflects the signature theme and combines the text field into a single line.

About APK Insight: In this APK Insight post, we break down the latest version of the app that Google has uploaded to the Play Store. When we unpack these files (called APK files, in the case of Android apps), we are able to see different lines of code within those that hint at potential future features. Keep in mind that Google may or may not ship these features at all, and our explanation of what they are may be incomplete. We'll try to enable those that are close to being finished, however, to show you what they'll look like when they charge. With that in mind, read on.

Basically, the version you have today before you enter any text is the upcoming compose field that Google Messages is working on with the latest beta version (20240404_01_RC00). Once you open the keyboard or start typing, a second bar will appear – containing shortcuts to Emoji, Magic Compose, Gallery, and the “+” sign.


Current vs. next

Instead, the emoji shortcut always appears on the left, while Gallery and Audio Recorder only appear when nothing is entered.

Once that's done, what you're writing is surrounded by emojis, Magic Compose, and the plus sign, though it's a bit unfortunate that you don't have a continuous gallery option.

Other than that, this redesign keeps the overall feel of the current theme, including how somewhat oddly the compose field is aligned to the left when your sent messages appear on the right.

This single line is a return to the previous design, with people really complaining about the revamp that came out earlier this year because it took up more space. This one-line text field is not yet live with the latest beta version of Google Messages.
