RCS messaging support is now available globally via Google Messages

Google has officially announced “Messages” based on the open Rich Communication Services (RCS) standard globally. It brings upgraded SMS text messaging so you can send and receive photos and videos in better quality.

Now, with Google Messages, Samsung users can also chat over Wi-Fi or data in high standard, check the read status of your sent message, share reactions, and enjoy more dynamic and engaging group chats.

“Today we’ve completed our global rollout of chat features to make this modern messaging experience universal and interconnected for everyone on Android. Now anyone using Messages around the world1 has access to modern chat features either from their carrier or directly from Google”. Said Google

Adding to this, Google is continually improving security protections to safeguard the privacy of user’s personal information and data. The company will be rolling out end-to-end encryption, starting with one-on-one RCS conversations between people using Messages.

End-to-end encryption ensures that no one, including Google and third parties, can read the content of your messages as they travel between your phone and the phone of the person you’re messaging.

This feature is only available when both you and the person you’re messaging have Messages installed and chat features on. It will be available for the beta testers beginning this month and continue into next year.

To access the newest features on your Samsung smartphone, update your Messages app to the latest version or download the app, and turn chat features on.
