Albeit Google has added the ability to respond to SMS, but unfortunately as for now it is not possible to send images through this. But the Mountain View giant has the answer and offers it in the answer field, a link to open the application.


Other applications have preceded Google to offer this feature, but the most bizarre is that Google itself has not built earlier. Moreover, Hangouts not even enjoys an update to support this function.

Google has also added a new Widget which will make us possible to engaging the conversations directly from our phone's home screen.
