What you need to know

  • Signal’s new release chat feature allows you to check Signal’s app change logs during an update. 
  • There’s a new bubble icon next to a message in the conversations. 
  • It allows you to check the replies that a message receives in a conversation. 

Amidst the plethora of messaging platforms, Signal is one of the private and secured communication apps. It supports individual talks, group chats, and calling. Signal introduced two new capabilities for Android users on Thursday. These include a new release chat function and a speech bubble icon in conversations.

Signal release chat is a new feature that sits next to your conversations within the app. Its primary use case is to bring all the latest updates and changelogs of every version of the new app update — next to some new feature announcements. Signal tells the release chat would be on mute by default for users on Android phones.
