Earlier this month, Google Messages total downloads exceeded 1 billion in the Play Store. According to the latest news from xda-developers, Google will soon add end-to-end encryption to Google Messages RCS.
Rich Communication Services (RCS) is a communication protocol between mobile telephone carriers and between phone and carrier, aiming at replacing SMS messages with a text-message system that is richer, provides phonebook polling (for service discovery), and can transmit in-call multimedia. It is part of broader IP Multimedia Subsystem.
