Are there any probes in the Andromeda Galaxy?

No human probes, no. The Andromeda Galaxy is simply too far away. It is about 2.5 million light years away, meaning that even at the speed of light it would take 2.5 million years to reach it, and no manmade probe can travel anywhere near that fast. Currently the furthest man-made probe is about 16 light ours from Earth, and it took nearly 35 years to get that far. Though technically we have no way of knowing if there is intelligent life somehwere in the Andromeda Galaxy that might be exploring their own solar system with probes.

If the other galaxy bigger than ours or smaller?

By definition the question is incorrect. There are not only 2 galaxies in our universe, but billions. Each galaxy is a different size and is made up of millions or stars and planets. Our galaxy is called the Milky-Way, and our closest neighbouring galaxy is called the Andromeda galaxy.
