  • The latest Google Messages app includes code that groups photos together if you send multiple pics in one RCS message.
  • This fixes the current issue of doing the same process but the recipient getting each photo one by one.
  • We needed to activate this feature manually, but we expect it will officially roll out to users soon enough.

Google keeps making the Messages app better. Recently, with the Android Feature Drop for May 2024, the company finally brought the ability to edit messages up to 15 minutes after you send them. Now, we’ve spotted another cool feature coming down the pipeline that will fix one of Messages’ more annoying current problems.

The problem is grouping photos together when a user sends multiple pics in one RCS message. If you do this right now, what you’ll see is each photo you attached to that message coming through one by one. Not only is this annoying, but it clutters up the chat and makes it difficult to find the text context to photos if the message itself is way up at the top and the last photo is way at the bottom.
