In 2020, the Conversations team introduced Square Messages, a messaging platform for merchants to manage conversations with their customers across multiple channels (SMS, email, FB, etc.). Messages is also home to Square Assistant -- a virtual assistant to help merchants serve their customers 24/7. For 2021 and beyond, Messages is coming to Android. Messages for Android will feature integrations with the larger Square ecosystem: Appointments, Feedback, Invoices, and eventually a customizable virtual business phone. The team itself was created in mid-2019 with the acquisition of Eloquent Labs.
