HTC releases its Messaging app in the Google Play Store

HTC releases its Messaging app in the Google Play Store
HTC is the second big name in the smartphone industry that releases one of its own apps in the Google Play Store in the last week. OnePlus did the same with its Weather app, which is now available for download for free in the Google's digital store.

However, neither OnePlus' weather app nor HTC's messaging app can be installed on other phones but those launched by these two companies. The release of HTC Messaging in the Google Play Store will make it easier for the Taiwanese company to update the app without having to push software updates for specific HTC handsets.

That will certainly make a difference for those who prefer HTC Messaging over Google's messaging app. Messaging app allows users to send group messages, back up and restore SMS text messages, as well as block contacts.

Also, HTC Messaging supports thread view in conversational style and search by keywords. Users can even set block list for spam messages.

You can find the link to the app's listing on Google Play Store, but as the name suggests, HTC Messaging is only compatible with HTC smartphones.

At least BlackBerry allows non-BB phones to use most of its apps.
