Google Messages might soon include a WhatsApp feature ...

Profiles are one of the most common messenger apps, such as WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, LINE, and others. This allows you to display more information about yourself for your contacts, such as a busy status, a profile photo, or a status update.

According to a screenshot shared on Reddit, Google may be thinking of introducing some new features to its Messages app.

Unfortunately, there isn't much information on the feature at the moment, suggesting that it is more of a placeholder for the moment and that Google hasn't yet implemented it. There are also some privacy settings like Visibility that allow users to customize how their profiles are shared.

We think having user profiles makes sense considering how Google is relying on RCS and transforming it into a universal messaging platform. Exactly how it will work remains to be seen, but we hope to have more information to share soon.
