Messages by Google is the official Google app for messaging over Rich Communication Services (RCS) with fallback to SMS/MMS. Get more done in your messages with one-tap calendar reminders and emoji replies, and keep your conversations secure with spam protection and end-to-end encryption so you can focus on connecting with the people and businesses you care about — no matter what device they use.
Know when friends are typing or when they’ve read your message, share high-resolution images and videos, easily add people to a group chat, and experience an all-around richer messaging experience.
End-to-end encryption secures your eligible communications, so no one (including Google and third parties) can read or view your messages and attachments except the person you’re messaging.
If a website is suspicious or unsafe, you’ll be warned before clicking any links. You can also block and report potential spammers to help stop unwanted and fraudulent messages.
Share high-resolution videos directly from your Google Photos library.
Keep the conversation going no matter what device you’re on. Enjoy RCS chats with friends on your phone, computer, Android tablet, or smart watch with the Messages app.
Access suggested replies, one-tap calendar reminders, link sharing, and more without leaving your message. Reply quicker and get more out of your conversations with smart actions.
Suggested responses, gifs, and emojis make conversations faster and more fun. Reply back to messages with just a tap and keep the conversation going.
