Wow! when i read this…then i look at my iPhone..there’s the update! 🙂
Interesting updates..”Group messages show every member of the group’s thumbnail below the message preview, with the latest sender having the large profile pic on the left. Inside messages, you’ll actually be able to choose a fun background rather than the usual white. You can also use messaging in landscape.
More importantly, a new smart notifications feature has been added to make sure you aren’t bombarded with alerts, and a system has been implemented to speed up the process of kicking off a group message. Users will also be able share their name and photo.”
