Google Releases Yet Another Messaging Client for Android, Messenger

Google has just released a Messenger client for Android phones that allows you to send text messages and SMS. You may be asking, “doesn’t this exist already?“, but you’d only be partly right. I’ve spoken about this before, but Google has way too many services that offer very similar features, which makes it very confusing what they’re actively supporting or kicking to the curb.

What makes this new app standout is that it can replace your existing text messaging client without the need of a Google Voice phone number. Messenger is actually pre-installed on Android 5.0, Lollipop.

Then Google Plus, where everything is piled all over each-other in a sloppy mess

If you want to give it a shot, the link is below or search “Messenger” from the Google Play Store on your smartphone.
