After a long wait, Google has finally introduced message editing in Google Messages as part of RCS (Rich Communication Services). 

Along with this feature, Google has announced the top 7 other features for Android users in a recent blog post. Let's take a look at these top features below:

Message Editing

Users can now edit or add text to RCS messages by tapping and holding a message.

This feature helps fix typos and avoiding the need to send another message with an asterisk mark.

Editing is available for up to 15 minutes after sending the message.

Instant Hotspot

Soon, users will be able to connect an Android tablet or Chromebook to a smartphone's hotspot with a single tap.

This eliminates the hassle of entering a password.
