RCS chat does not provide end-to-end encryption.
Google chases Apple's news app, which many consider the best in-platform messaging service (as opposed to a third-party app). If a message in the app is in a blue text bubble, it means that you are sending a message to someone using an iOS device or a Mac. These messages are encrypted end-to-end and animated effects like Animoji and Memoji can be added. If the text bubble is green, it means that you are notifying someone through an Android device. These messages are not encrypted and you can not use any special iOS-based animation. Google plans to display something on the screen to let the user know if they are connected to another Android user with RCS features or if they are communicating with an Android or iOS user via SMS.
Once RCS Chat is available on the market, users will be prompted to log in the first time they open the Messaging app.
Because this is encryption, this is not a suitable feature on RCS. Google should work on it. If you're an Android user planning a protest against the government in your country, you should still consider a third-party app like Telegram. While RCS Chat does not provide end-to-end encryption, a message sent to the recipient is removed from Google's servers. According to Drew Rowny, the product guide for the Android News app, "we'll delete the message from our RCS back-end service from the point of view of data retention as soon as we submit it to an end user, and if we keep it, it's fair." to deliver it when that person goes online. "A Googler working on the news app, Sanaz Ahari, adds," We fundamentally believe that communication, especially messaging, is very personal and users have a right to privacy in their communication. And we are determined to find a solution for our users. "
Those in the US who were hoping Google would put RCS Chat on their Android phones crossed their thumbs and toes, hopefully Google will find a way to do it in the UK and France It may take some time for the function to execute in the status messages.
