Google Adds Encrypted Messaging To Android App

Google has added end-to-end encryption to its Messages app on Android.

First tested in beta form last November, the feature is now rolling out to all devices with Rich Communication Services activated.

The option is only available for one-on-one chats, assuming both users have RCS enabled. A lock icon will indicate that the feature is activated.

“No matter who you’re messaging with, the information you share is personal,” Google writes in the blog post announcing this feature.

“End-to-end encryption in Messages helps keep your conversations more secure while sending. It ensures that no one can read the content of your messages as they travel between your phone and the phone of the person you’re messaging.”
