Google messaging: privacy will no longer be an issue for your users

The Google Messaging app is increasingly popular with Android users. This app for sending and receiving messages is one of the most complete on the market and is available for free to everyone.

If you still have doubts whether it is worth using Google Messages, the novelty that I bring you today will dispel these questions. As Google announced, from now on, no one will be able to read the messages you exchange with your contacts.

Google messaging receives end-to-end encryption

This maximum privacy will be achieved by implementing end-to-end encryption. A technology increasingly used and requested in the various digital communication platforms.

Google Messaging

However, it is important to note that this encryption will only be applied to RCS messages. If you already use the protocol that aims to be the future of SMS, rest assured that even Google will not be able to read the content of the messages you exchange.

Google will start by implementing this encryption for individual chats, leaving chat groups for later. First, it will be the users of the beta version of Google Messaging to experience the functionality, with the promise of making it available to other users next year.

RCS: what it is and what are the advantages

RCS stands for Rich Communication Services and is dubbed the future of SMS. With this protocol, communications continue to be made through your operator’s network, however, they will be more interactive than ever.

Using this technology, it will be possible to send emojis and other characters that we usually associate with platforms such as Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp. To find out in more detail what the RCS is and the differences from SMS, I recommend this article.

In UK, all national operators already support the use of written communications via RCS. For that, you only need to install an application compatible with the protocol on your smartphone and nothing better than Google Messages for that.
