SMS text chat app demo

I’m trying to build an animated demo of a conversation in an SMS text chat app, where each new message appears as a speech bubble below the previous speech bubbles and pushes them upwards on the screen, like the Messages app in iOS on iPhone.

What’s the simplest way to build this animation? I was hoping it was as easy as stacking all of the speech bubbles at the bottom, and ‘on show’ for each would push the other widgets above upwards, but I guess that’s not how the ‘push widgets’ works. Or I assume I can manually move all of the speech bubbles every time a new speech bubble appears, but am hoping there’s a cleaner way.

Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you!

@Vikramadhithan both topics have been archived. Is there any way to access the info? I could really use that in my thesis. Thanks!
