Mes­sages

Con­ver­sa­tions are about to get a whole lot more fun!

Mac Format - - MAC OS SIERRA -

Ap­ple’s in­stant mes­sag­ing ser­vice is about to get a lot more in­ter­est­ing, with a mix of fun and prac­ti­cal fea­tures that make it more en­gag­ing. Mes­sages in Sierra sup­ports many of the same tools that are found in the iOS 10 ver­sion, en­abling you to send a quick re­ac­tion to a mes­sage in two clicks and with­out any typ­ing. Share a web page’s ad­dress from Sa­fari and Mes­sages presents it more at­trac­tively than be­fore, with the page’s ti­tle and a pic­ture to make it a lit­tle clearer where click­ing will take the re­cip­i­ent. The app also deals with me­dia bet­ter than be­fore.

How­ever, the beta ver­sion lacks some stuff from iOS 10; nat­u­rally, full-screen ef­fects such as bal­loon an­i­ma­tions, but also the mes­sage bub­ble an­i­ma­tions, such as slam­ming down on the win­dow.
