Earlier, we have seen some of the Smartphone makers loading their In-house apps to the Play Store. Samsung, One Plus to name some started providing support to their apps via Play Store, some time before. Now, HTC had made available its official messaging app HTC Messages in the Play Store.
The HTC Messages app is developed by HTC corporation. It is the in-built/default messaging app seen in HTC devices running Android.
The app, which does the usual job of send/receive SMS or MMS, has got other features not present in the stock android messaging app.
Features Of HTC Messages App
Google Play Store enlists following features of the app.
- Send and receive SMS and MMS text messages
- Send group message(s)
- Search by keyword(s)
- Back up and restore SMS text messages
- The user can set block list for spam messages
- Support thread view in conversational style
- Secure box to keep privacy
- Block contact(s)
- Sorting by date and name
Eventhough, the app is now available in the Play Store. It is unclear whether only HTC devices are supported or not. I tried to install the app in my Galaxy J5 phone through Play Store. Unfortunately, Play Store assigned my device as unsupported. Dont know what is the case with devices other than HTC. However, if you liked the HTC Messages you can download it from the Play Store.
