Google seems to be planning to move its Messages web application from Android.com to Google.com, in accordance with the editing of the Chromium Gerrit code seen 9to5Google,
The code in question is a switch that instructs Chrome OS devices to visit messages.google.com — instead of messages.android.com — when users use the Better Together platform functionality.
At the time of writing, messages.google.com was not active, although this may change over the next few weeks.
Probably, Google will keep both domains active for at least a couple of weeks until it transfers users to the first.
This move is part of Google’s broader initiative to reduce Android’s visibility as the main part of its brand’s arsenal. For example, the company did not mention the operating system when it announced Pixel 3 and 3 XL in October 2018.
In the case of messages, until recently, the SMS application was called Android messages. And one more example: at the beginning of this year, Google renamed Android Pay to Google Pay.
