Google Messenger update allows you to manage which messages are saved on SIM card


Google is updating its stock messenger app found on Nexus devices giving users the ability to easily manage saved messages on his/her SIM card(s).

Version 1.8.266 lets you easily manage which text messages are saved on your SIM card. Users can head into the app’s settings and manage which messages you want to be saved to your SIM card. Sure there are other ways to move messages over when switching to a new device, but this allows you to take just some not all, and is built-into the app itself. Users will have the ability to delete messages they don’t want to save.


Once you move to a new phone, all your saved messages will automatically transfer with the swap of your SIM card. This feature could be very useful for those of you who switch phones constantly and have more than one SIM card to use on a daily basis. This can be found under the setting ‘manage SIM card messages.’


The app hasn’t hit the Play Store yet, but if you’re in a rush to get the latest feature, the updated version has been uploaded by a user on APKMirror, which will update your already existing app. It’s 100% safe to download at the source link below, alternatively you can wait until Google publishes it on the Play Store.
