    "If you want to say it loud, you can say it loud."
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 6:27:11 PM
    "If you want to say it more gently, you can do that too. (smaller font)
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 6:27:32 PM
    "Invisible ink, can clear away the message. So it might say 'i'm sorry' and then when slide finger, it says 'I've missed you'"
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 6:27:49 PM
    Can do it with images too. Will look like bubbles but when slide finger across, can see photo of someone wearing an engagement ring.
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 6:27:49 PM
    The invisible ink message-appear trick is cute...and weird.
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 6:27:58 PM
    "More handwritten messages."
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 6:28:11 PM
    Ink sails into the transcript. Supports digital touch. Can send sketches, hearbeat
  • Rich Brown 6/13/2016 6:28:19 PM
    I predict much confusion for the first two or three months of invisible ink.
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 6:28:28 PM
    "Sometimes what you say deserves the whole screen. Messages can do that as well."
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 6:28:32 PM
    Apple Watch style heartbeat, scribbles come to Message. How are heartbeats sent?
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 6:28:39 PM
    Like if you say "Happy New Year," Whole screen can turn into a firework image
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 6:28:48 PM
    Demo with Bethany and Emron (?)
  • Tyler Lizenby 6/13/2016 6:28:58 PM
  • Tyler Lizenby 6/13/2016 6:29:03 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 6:29:06 PM
    Demo time now
  • Tyler Lizenby 6/13/2016 6:29:12 PM
  • Tyler Lizenby 6/13/2016 6:29:17 PM
  • Connie Guglielmo 6/13/2016 6:29:18 PM
    An aside: several women giving demos at the this year's WWDC. Progress.
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 6:30:06 PM
    This is the most sparkly twinkly iOS demo ever
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 6:30:23 PM
    Can send a digital touch video from within messages
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 6:30:45 PM
    Tap Backs lets you double tap and send back
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 6:31:11 PM
    If you press and hold the send button, you can change how big the bubble is (will send it in really small text)(but then ends up regular sized)
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 6:31:31 PM
    Showing us how to make a digitized video
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 6:32:08 PM
    Feels vaguely like a Portlandia sketch right now
  • Connie Guglielmo 6/13/2016 6:32:12 PM
    "It's simply the best way to share music."
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 6:32:18 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 6:32:48 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 6:33:00 PM
    I am curious, though, how many of these messaging ideas can make their way to Apple Watch. As styles evolve, some of these tools could be wrist-ready
  • Connie Guglielmo 6/13/2016 6:33:19 PM
    Ok -- demo may have been "smashed"
  • Connie Guglielmo 6/13/2016 6:33:23 PM
    Waiting..
  • Rich Brown 6/13/2016 6:33:36 PM
    Very not dope.
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 6:33:50 PM
    Slam, loud, gentle...like punctuation for messages
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 6:34:03 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 6:34:08 PM
    "I didn't like how you slammed that last response last night, tbh"
  • Connie Guglielmo 6/13/2016 6:34:18 PM
    We're getting a demo of invisible ink.. "Fantastic" when you want to keep something private.
  • Connie Guglielmo 6/13/2016 6:34:36 PM
    And of course, more emoji
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 6:34:46 PM

    Disappearing text

  • Connie Guglielmo 6/13/2016 6:34:58 PM
    and effects like confetti and (disco?) music
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 6:35:04 PM
    You can use invisible ink and lasers. OR confetti. And maybe a slam.
  • Connie Guglielmo 6/13/2016 6:35:09 PM
    Craig Federighi back on stage.
  • Tyler Lizenby 6/13/2016 6:35:24 PM
  • Connie Guglielmo 6/13/2016 6:35:39 PM
    Those are some highlights for messages. We found when it comes to expressing yourself, there's more we can do...And we're opening up messages to developers too.
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 6:35:44 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 6:36:13 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 6:36:18 PM
    Payment in Messages...
