Android Stock Messaging App Update

Posted Dec 14, 2012 at 8:22 pm in Threads > Apps

Anyone notice that with the Jelly Bean update to 4.2.1 Google updated their stock Messaging app to properly support mass testing? Unfortunately a lot of my friends are iPhone users and love to mass text lots of people at the same time. Before Android 4.2.1 each response to these messages would show up in a separate thread from each individual person. It was almost impossible to keep up with the conversation.

Now with Android 4.2.1, all responses show up in the same thread! Also when I respond it goes to everyone. I was really hoping for change for a long time and am really excited they fixed it. I just thought it was odd how I didn’t read anything about it. It was a big deal in my mind.
