Google Chat from Gmail Adding iOS Focus Mode Support

Focus Mode Support is now introduced with iOS 15. Focus mode lets you specify which people within your organization can reach you when Do Not Disturb is enabled. This is helpful when you have limited screen time available, but don’t want to miss any important message. With this update, Google is also making it show that other people’s profile photos will appear in Chat notifications to make it “easier to see who’s messaged you.”
