What is MMS and why is it important to Google Messages?
Google has been working on a messaging app that would compete with Apple’s iMessage and Facebook Messenger. This app is called MMS or Multimedia Messaging Service, which is an older technology that predates text-based communication. While MMS is no longer the primary way for people to send pictures and videos, it is still an important part of the messaging landscape.
Here are some reasons why you should be concerned if your Google Messages isn’t downloading MMS:
1) Picture and video messages can be very important to keep in touch with friends and family. If you’re not able to send them through Google Messages, it can be difficult to keep in touch.
2) If you’re using MMS to communicate with someone who uses another messaging service, you may not be able to see their pictures and videos unless they also download MMS on their phone.
3) If your phone doesn’t have MMS enabled, you won’t be able to access any pictures or videos that were sent through MMS via Google Messages. This means that if you lose your phone or if it gets stolen, whoever finds your phone won’t be able to see any of your photos or videos.
If you’re having trouble downloading MMS through Google Messages, here are some 13 fixes that might help:
1) Make sure your device is connected to the internet and turned on.
