Google messaging is now available worldwide

Google has globally implemented the " Rich Communication Servies (RCS)" system in Google Messages. This means that the SMS tool of mobile phones with an Android operating system adopts instant messaging functions.
Google messaging, now available worldwide, will not have end-to-end encryption until early 2021 That is, from now on Google messaging works just like Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp or Telegram does, and users can send and receive photos, videos, voice notes, chat with Wi-Fi connection or data, read notifications from the message, share reactions, create a group chat.

Google completes the development of RCS messaging after several years of conversations and negotiations with mobile equipment manufacturers such as Samsung, Huawei, and America Movil, among others, as well as operators such as Deutsche Telekom, Orange, Telef√≥nica, Telenor, and Vodafone. As a result of the agreements, Android users around the world can now enjoy Google Messages with access to instant messaging chat functions through Google or, if allowed, from the user's phone service provider in his country. In the following article, we explain how to activate the RCS  on your mobile phone.

Google works on end-to-end encryption At the moment, the RCS chats in the Google messaging app do not include end-to-end encryption, which guarantees total privacy of communications, like WhatsApp, Telegram and other messaging apps do. However, Google is working on it and has indicated that this level of encryption will be implemented progressively and will be available worldwide in early 2021.

With this system, no one, not even Google itself, will have access to the content of the messages that the user sends and receives, not even while these information packets travel from one device to another.

Google is already testing end-to-end encryption in beta with some users, in one-to-one communications. When the feature exits the testing phase and is available globally, conversations will automatically update and become end-to-end encrypted.
