Google is closing the gap between Android and iOS. From there, they'll be presented with a QR code that they'll then scan with the Android Messages app.

You'll need to enable Messages for web in your mobile app, and then you'll be ready to message all your friends from your computer's browser. As per Google's blog post, text, images, and stickers are all supported on the new Web version.

If you're looking to send some animated GIFs, all you have to do is type a term into the chat window and, instead of pressing the send icon, hit the one that says "GIF Search". There's also a Smart Reply feature, with suggested responses that will vary according to the contents of the last message you received. You can now preview links within conversations, too, so that you can decide whether you want to click on it or not. Perhaps, the nicest addition though is the ability to easily copy and paste one-time codes sent to you. Many of these features were announced when the company revealed its upcoming Android Messages overhaul in April.
