With beta versions of Google Messages – messages.android_20231117_01_RCO0.phone.openbeta_dynamic, Google Message is working on changing the UI of the bottom chat bar and the profile page, as revealed by SPAndroid.

Users’ reactions to the changes have been overwhelmingly positive. Many take to social media to express their excitement about the new UI. “This is gorgeous,” one user commented on the Reddit post sharing this update. “I can’t wait to try it out!” Another user said, “The new design is so good. It makes me want to use Messages even more.”
These UI changes are currently hidden behind flags and may soon appear for beta testers.
