Google  starts its spam protection feature for text messages

San Francisco:  The social giant Google has started rolling out its spam protection feature for Messages post almost over six months of developing it for Android users. Reports from a handful of tipsters suggested that , that spam protection feature is now going live, though not all and sundry seems to have it just so far, the Android Police stated late on Friday.

A number of users were noticing a prompt called "New! Spam protection" soon after opening Messages. "The change appears to be server-side and in a limited rollout for the time being, as other devices, we've tested, including my own, don't have it just yet. When it does hit your device, you should see a notification similar to that above when launching Messages," the report further added.

It once introduced, users can disable this feature in the Settings and then in the Advanced menu. Data about spam messages is to get better the search engine giant's ability to detect future spam for users.

The company has also maintained that Messages is its primary communication solution for its users.  Before this week, Google announced it was planning to move its Messages web app which allows users to manage SMS/MMS messages on their phone from another device from Android.com to Google.com. The move is seen as the tech giant's plan to reduce the use of the word Android.
