Google Messages increases end-to-end encrypted group chat limit

To make the Google Messages app a safer and more enjoyable experience for users, Google has been working hard. The addition of end-to-end encryption means that users can now securely send text messages and media files without worrying about their data being intercepted by third parties. In addition, the Rich Communication Services (RCS) protocol has been introduced to enhance media sharing while keeping all communications secure with end-to-end encryption.

The recent update to the Google Messages allows up to 100 members in group chats that have enabled smartphone encryption, which is an increase from 21 members (including you) previously allowed in encrypted groups.

To enable this feature, both sender and receiver must have enabled smartphone encryption on their devices for it to work properly (Esper’s Mishaal Rahman pointed this out in a tweet)

In addition, other new features include starring texts or photos/videos on Android devices; reactions; individual replies; a transcribe feature for voice messages; a new app icon design as well as YouTube videos being available in Picture In Picture mode within the chat window itself – making it easier than ever before!

These are overall great news for those who regularly use Google’s messaging service, as they will be able to enjoy enhanced security along with improved features such as more group chats and additional multimedia options such as YouTube videos directly in conversations!
