Adding multiple accounts to Messages

After activating the message application, you will have the opportunity to add several accounts to Messages , in a very simple way.

Report reading

Another interesting option in iMessage is read notification. When we activate this option we will let the senders know if we have read their messages sent or not.

Blocking contacts
