First of all, there is a new mentions system that will allow users to mention their contacts with their names such as @Sara or @Luis. By typing the “@” sign, a list of suggested contacts appears. An especially useful function in chat groups.
Another novelty of Messages will be the message removal after sending them. It is not known if there will be a time limit to delete messages.
They could also reach the write indicators to chat groups, mark the last message of a conversation as unread, and status updates.
Last year, Steve Troughton-Smith discovered some evidence that Apple was working on a new version for its Messages application in the macOS Catalina system code.
