Group conversations on Google Messages will finally be end-to-end encrypted

Google is celebrating 30 years of SMS by rolling out a long-awaited security feature for Google Messages. Now, group conversations on the Google Messages app will be end-to-end encrypted.

The company first announced full encryption of group chats in May at Google I/O 2022. Now, after nearly seven months, the new feature is entering beta testing and will be available to anyone registered with the Play Store software. End-to-end encryption ensures that only you and the person or people you’re messaging with can read or listen to what’s being sent, not even Google.

Messaging apps like WhatsApp have already had this feature for group chats for a few years now, so Google has been playing catch-up.
