After several years of failing to make RCS widely available, due primarily to pushback by phone carriers, Google has now officially made their Rich Communication Services or RCS available globally via their Messages app. It is safe to assume that there will be a beta testing period of at least a few months before a rollout of the encryption feature for non-beta users.More news: Former Bigg Boss Contestant Sana Khan Married to Religious Scholar from Gujarat
One of the main drawbacks of RCS at this time is that it lacks any encryption features, but Google said this will change soon. Now anyone using Messages around the world has access to modern chat features either from their carrier or directly from Google. And Google was working on expanding RCS feature in more regions. It'll become available to beta testers, who can sign up here, beginning later in November and continue into the new year.
In addition to this, Google said it is adding end-to-end encryption to one-on-one RCS conversations, meaning neither Google nor third parties can read the content of those messages.More news: PSG 'completely stopped playing' against Monaco but have Neymar back for Leipzig
A "lock" icon will be shown below the message (next to "Delivered") to indicate that the messages are encrypted and the person you are texting with also has Android Messages installed with Chat Services enabled. Basically, numerous features that are supported in stand-alone messaging programs like Facebook's Messenger, Telegram and WhatsApp should be available to anyone using Google's Messages app.
