I have a pixel 6a, when I go into my messages and click on a conversation and open that up,at the top is 4-5 icons a on the top of the chat window

The icon on the left of those looks like two squares on top of each other. Are you able to tell me what that does?

Hello, thank you for using Howly. I’ll be happy to help you out! May I ask your name?

Oh, this is just a "Copy" icon.

Customer Replay

So I clicked it. Does that copy it any where specific ?

It just copies the message that you choose.
Then you can paste it in another place.

Customer Replay

Ok. So it’s not saved as an image anywhere for someone to see should they have my phone ? If I don’t paste it anywhere no one will see it ?
it was an accidental press

Yes, no one can see your copied message they can only see it if only you choose to send it to them.

Customer Replay

thank you. I have one other question is that ok??

Of course :)
