The first beta brought some more significant changes to the Messages app. Most notably, the overall look and design of the app was different.

With today’s release of iOS 7 beta 2, Messages gets another change: Avatars in group messages. This makes it much easier to follow a conversation. However, I don’t know about you, but group messaging is kind of annoying. It makes me want to respond with “UNSUBSCRIBE” most of the time.

But with the new addition of avatars, it will definitely be easier for those who do use group messaging on the iPhone and iPad to follow along and keep up.

As we discover more new features in iOS 7, we’ll let you know.
