Question: when you update a contact in your contacts list, isn't the contact info supposed to update in Google messages also 🤔. Also how do you update Google messages manually..??

Hey there.

Technically, when you update a contact photo in your contacts, it should update in Google Messages as well but I've seen it not apply and sometimes, it does. Unfortunately I haven't figured out why it does this.

To update the app manually, you'd need to get the updated APK or APKS and install it using either the built-in package installer or a third party installer such as SAI.

Google is a 3rd party. You need to do it manually since you have configured it to be saved on your cell phone and not in the Google account.
