After being previewed in late November last year, Google Messages is slowly rolling out custom bubbles that allow you to customize the color and background of RCS conversations.

The custom bubbles are exclusive to RCS chats and do not appear in regular SMS conversations. Once they roll out to your device, you’ll see the “Change colors” option in the full message menu. You can also access it from the redesigned contact details section below the contact’s image.

This opens up a new full-screen preview interface with nine options: Default (material that uses dynamic color), Blue, Cyan, Purple, Green, Orange, Magenta, Pink, and Gray.

The appearance you choose applies to almost everything on the screen, including your message bubble, but not to the text field (voice input button), which remains light or dark.

At the same time, this doesn’t apply to the Details page, with dynamic color schemes present in other parts of the app.

Custom bubbles are more pronounced when dark mode is disabled. This is also how you’ll notice the RCS background, which, thematically, consists of bubbles.

Today, we’re seeing custom bubbles with the latest beta release of Google Messages (version 20240228+), but they haven’t been widely rolled out yet. If you set a theme and the other person doesn’t have custom bubbles yet, they won’t see any changes on their phone.

In the future, custom bubbles will be synced on a per-conversation basis.
