Google has today started rolling out the new Google Messenger update that brings with it a number updates, enhancements and a couple of new features for users to enjoy.
The latest Google Messenger update enables new customised colour options that allow users to adjust the colour scheme of the application to suit their preferences, together with new smoother animations that remove the lag that was present in previous versions sliding animation.
To be able to change the colours of your Google Messenger application once you install the update, simply go into the People and Options section from the overflow menu within a conversation. Where you can change the theme colour manually to suit your preferences using a colour pallete.
Google started rolling out the Google Messenger update earlier today and it’s expected to take a few days to reach all users Android devices, so be patient if it hasn’t already landed on your device.
However if you can’t wait that long the Android Police website have kindly made available the APK enabling you to install it directly from their download if you have the skills and time. The Android Police explain that the cryptographic signature within the APK guarantees that the file is safe and has not been tampered with in any way.
