“Now anyone using Messages around the world has access to modern chat features either from their carrier or directly from Google.

Messages by Google already lets users starts a video call from the conversation, message from the web, and use helpful features like Smart Reply, while protecting people from spam.

“We’re continually improving security protections to safeguard your privacy and will be rolling out end-to-end encryption, starting with one-on-one RCS conversations between people using Messages,” Google said.

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, the company added.

This functionality will roll out to beta testers beginning this month and continue into next year.
