However, the most important feature that has been added to the Google Messages app is the new font size adjustment capability. This has been missing on the service for the past few years, preventing the users to zoom in on their conversations. 

And now, Google confirmed that the latest version of the Messages app now has this feature. Reddit user u/user01401 is the first one to leak this new capability. 

"A lot of people have been asking for years for Google Messages to have adjustable font sizes - it's finally here!" added the anonymous leaker.

A visitor tries out a Microsoft-driven Nokia smartphone next to a symbol of a cloud at the Deutsche Telekom stand the day before the CeBIT 2012 technology trade fair officially opens to the public on March 5, 2012 in Hanover, Germany. CeBIT 2012, the world's largest information technology trade fair, will run from March 6-10, and advances in cloud computing are a major feature this year.

To give you more idea, here's how you can use the latest feature: 

  • The new Google Messages font size adjustment feature is quite straightforward and starts by opening any thread.
  • After that, all you need to do is pinch out with two fingers so that you can increase most text in the current window. 
  • However, you need to remember that the app bar still stays the same. 
  • Once you use this feature, all timestamps and message bubbles will adjust accordingly. These include the prompt and any entered text in the compose field. Icons, like contact avatars and the send button, and menus remain static. 

Other Innovations Of Google 

Aside from the new font size adjustment feature of the Messages app, XDA Developers also reported that Google is also rolling out the ability to pin conversations to the top of its text messaging application. 

This is currently available on the new Google Messages 8.3.026 app version. However, there are some instances when you will not be able to see this new feature. If that happens, all you need to do is clear your application's cache.
