In its Messages app, Google is experimenting with end-to-end encryption for group chats in order to make it more secure. Furthermore, in the upcoming weeks, the group chatting feature will start to go out to Messages users signed up for the open beta test.

E2EE (end-to-end encryption) functionality is now accessible for group chats in Messages. To recall end-to-end encryption for group chatting was first introduced at Google’s I/O 2022.

RCS chats in the Messages by Google app already support E2EE. End-to-end encryption is possible with RCS but not with SMS. As a result, all one-on-one texts received through Google Messages, for instance, are encrypted, making them private and secure and visible only to the sender and the recipient. End-to-end encryption is currently beginning to roll out for group conversations and will soon be accessible to select users participating in the open beta test. 

RCS not only makes texting safer, but it also improves the experience. According to the company, SMS texting lacks many of the features that smartphones offer, but RCS enables you to text over Wi-Fi, send and receive high-quality images and videos, view typing indicators and read receipts in real-time, name group discussions, add or remove friends from group chats, and much more. In order to share the perfect emoji, Messages will soon allow you to reply to RCS messages with any emoji.

According to the company, RCS is built to function on every phone, so you can have the same texting experience no matter where you reside, who made your phone, or what operating system it uses. And as of right now, every significant mobile carrier and manufacturer has adopted RCS as the industry standard with the exception of Apple. When people with iPhones message people with Android phones, Apple refuses to implement RCS and continues to rely on SMS, keeping their texting trapped in the 1990s, the company in its announcement also noted.
