SMS have always been a core part of a mobile phone. The Advent of smartphones however has somewhat diminished the importance of SMSes in mobile phones. Any further development in the way people SMS has come to a grinding halt. This slowdown has been caused by faster and better IM services like Whatsapp, Line, WeChat, etc. In Android the messaging app has not been much modified much with OS updates. The Messaging app in Jellybean 4.2 is almost same as in Gingerbread with only the adoption of HOLO theme and a few minor features. But the base app remains unchanged.
