What’s new in Messages on Mac?
The Messages app in macOS Ventura offers new features you can use to collaborate on projects more efficiently, unsend a recent message, watch a show or listen to music together using SharePlay, and more.
Search for an image, or items and text inside an image (such as “bike” or “For Sale”). See Search for a conversation.
When you want to collaborate on a project (such as a document, spreadsheet, or other file), you can send an invitation in Messages and everyone in the conversation is automatically included. When someone makes an edit, you see activity updates at the top of the Messages conversation. After you view the changes in the other app, get back to your conversation with just a click. See Collaborate on projects.
Everyday messaging is even more powerful. Unsend a recent message, edit a message you just sent, recover a recently deleted message, and mark a conversation as unread so you don’t forget to reply later. See Unsend or edit a message, Delete messages and conversations, and Mark a conversation as unread.
Receive an invitation from someone using an iPhone or iPad (with iOS 16 or iPadOS 16.1) to use SharePlay—just click Join to begin viewing or listening together. See Join SharePlay in Messages.
Keep track of more content shared with you in Messages, such as Books and some third-party apps, in the Shared with You section in corresponding apps. See Keep track of shared content.
Personalize your Memoji look and style to match the real you—more hairstyles, headwear, noses, and poses. See Create your Memoji.
