Google revealed in one of its latest statements about 65 percent of its consumers said to be considering the use of messaging to connect with a business to get more information about the product or service of the advertiser.

In the 2016 Mobile Messaging Report it was revealed about 64 percent of the consumers look the advertised businesses to be contactable and to be also made available on messaging apps.

Similarly the IQ research of Facebook reveals 67 percent of the consumers expect messaging to business more.

All such data makes it very clear consumers are increasingly becoming present on mobile and the new SMS feature makes perfect sense as of now.
