iMessage has got two all-new screen effects such as, “Spotlight” and “Echo” in iOS 11. While the former highlights your message by putting a large spotlight over it, the latter multiplies the message all over the screen; thereby bringing plenty of fun into the play. How about having a go at these new screen effects? Go through this quick guide to send iMessage with Spotlight and Echo screen effects on iPhone and iPad
How to Send iMessage with Spotlight and Echo Effects on iPhone
Step #1. Launch Messages app on your iOS device → Open any conversation.
Step #2. Now, tap on iMessage text field → Type the message.
Step #3. Next up, touch and hold the send button.
Step #4. Up next, you need to select the Screen tab at the top.
Now, go ahead and send your message with your fav screen effects.
Send iMessage with Echo Screen Effect: Echo is the first screen effect in iOS 11. Simply tap on the arrow button to send it.
Send iMessage with Spotlight Screen Effect: To send your message with Spotlight, just swipe left from right on the screen and then hit the send button. It’s second on the list—from the beginning.
Likewise, swipe left from right to left to access more screen effects like love, confetti, etc.
Send Photo/Video and GIF with Echo/Spotlight Screen Effect in iMessage on iPhone
You can also send GIF, photo, and video with Echo and Spotlight effects. If you want to send photo/video with the screen effect, tap on the camera icon → either select the clip from your library or snap a new one → Tap and hold send button → Select screen effect → then go about sending it as usual.
Likewise, to send GIF with the screen effect, Tap on App Store icon → Tap on the red search button at the bottom → select any cool GIF and then send it as mentioned above.
Your Favorite Screen Effects?
I like to send iMessage with screen effects as they provide the real wings to the emotions. Among all the nine-screen effects, I like Love, Echo and off course Spotlight. I’m so sad to know that there are no new bubble effects in iPhone.
