[News] Google Messages May Finally Preparing End-To-End Encryption for RCS Messages

Assalamu Alaikum, Dear Mi Fans
Greetings from Mi Community Bangladesh Tech Team. An analysis of the latest update to Google Messages suggests it may be moving closer to having end-to-end encryption for RCS. Rich communication services or RCS is the successor to SMS messaging and does what most other texting services do but without the end-to-end encryption that apps like Signal and iMessage have. We are still actively looking through the many changes found within, one in particular stood out end-to-end encryption for RCS messages.

We have decompiled the latest version of an application that Google uploaded to the Play Store. When we decompile these files we are able to see various lines of code within that hint at possible future features. Keep in mind that Google may or may not ever ship these features and our interpretation of what they are may be imperfect.

RCS End-To-End Encryption:
For an over simplified explanation of end-to-end encryption, your message is encrypted on your device in such a way that it can only be decrypted and read on the recipient’s device, meaning no one should be able to snoop on your conversation.

An internal build of Google Messages v. 6.2 has several lines of code that offer clues to possible future features for the app, including 12 new strings that refer to encryption. There isn’t enough information available to determine whether the sender and recipient of texts in Messages would need to be using the app for the end-to-end encryption to be in effect. The code updates do suggest a setting that might allow users to decide whether to grant permission to other Android apps that have access to messages to see encrypted messages as well.

There’s no way to know if or when Google will ever ship the end-to-end encryption feature. That said, it’s clear Google wants RCS to be a legitimate competitor to iMessage, matching it both in features like message reactions for the everyday user and ones like encryption for the more security conscious.
