Group chats in Google Messages will be encrypted so that users' chats are private and secure.

Google is constantly updating its Messenger app (Google Messages) with new features. Google has now started rolling out end-to-end encryption for group chats in Google Messages. That is, now users will be able to enjoy group chat in Google Message like social media platforms like WhatsApp. Also it will be encrypted so that users' chats are private and secure. That is, after encryption of Google messages, only the sending and receiving users will be able to see these messages. Let us tell you that earlier Google had released the facility of emoji reaction on text messages.

Google has started rolling out end-to-end encryption to group chats for messages to users as part of a beta project. This feature will help users send one-on-one texts using the Messages app and it will be encrypted so that they are private and secure. To recall, Google had initially announced E2EE support for group chats at its I/O event in May 2022.

According to a report by 9to5Google, the company said that it has completed the rollout of group chat end-to-end encryption for users in the open beta in just over a month. The company will make the open beta program available to some users in the coming weeks.

Emoji reaction in text message

Meanwhile, Google has also started testing full emoji reactions in its Messages platform, allowing users to react to any text message with emoji. Thumbs up, heart eye, shocking, laughing, crying and angry emoji will be available for emoji reaction.

It will be much like the emoji reaction of WhatsApp, Instagram, Twitter and Telegram. Currently, some beta users are getting this reaction emoji on Google Messages, but soon it will be released for everyone. A menu will also appear along with the emoji reaction, by clicking on which a lot of emoji can be selected.ย
