Google Messages Working on End to End Encryption for RCS Messaging

Google working on end-to-end encryption for RCS Messages

Per 9to5google, the rich communication services also known as RCS, is about to welcome the feature that will make conversation via the Google Messages more secure and private.

The links will appear in a highlighted blue box under the COVID-19 updates header where businesses can also add an accompanying message. So, it can only be enabled in your device if your carrier supports it and if it is available in your country. Now when using Google Messages for RCS you'll be able to go into live chat with someone when they are online, but if they have no data connection, sometimes, messages don't get delivered as you might expect. The RCS protocol is standard, with which you can chat from other applications such as the native message application of Huawei or Samsung, but if you chat from the Google application you will have extra functions, such as this future privacy protection. Google will use authenticity code to verify each SMS you receive to alert you of any spoofing attempt or misleading content. From there, the Messages app can be easily chosen as the default app for your device. T-Mobile support for Universal Profile should mean that once other carriers initiate support, generalized messaging between carriers should start working, but there will be no ETA from other carriers when that happens. Then click on Chat Features and select Enable Chat Features. "We were first in the U.S.to bring RCS messaging to customers in 2015 and will continue to innovate in this space".

It requires a continuous Wi-Fi connection or mobile data connectivity to run through. That's all stacking atop features that already pinned it as one of the best SMS apps around. This system has now become a standard, and not only Google Messages, but many services have switched to this method.

In the USA In the United States, the largest deployment of RCS so far has come thanks to Google, which has started to activate the feature for some Messaging users relying on their own RCS system. Whether there will be integration of encryption across these different apps we don't know. Although we don't have a precise release date, it should be only a matter of time until Google will implement end-to-end encryption for its messages. In fact, Google Messages also should have taken this step earlier, as that would have made it more popular.
