San Francisco:  Tech giant Google has rolled out end-to-end encryption in group chats for Messages app users enrolled in the beta programme.

The company said it has “completed the rollout of group chat end-to-end encryption for users in Open Beta” in just over a month, reports 9 to 5 Google.

With this feature, one-on-one texts sent using Messages by Google will be encrypted so they are private and secure and can only be seen by the sender and recipient.

The Google Messages app already includes end-to-end encryption when messaging someone who also has the Rich Communication Services (RCS) chat features enabled, however, this has so far been limited to messages between two parties and not group chats.

The tech giant said “it will be available to some users in the open beta programme over the coming weeks”, according to the report.
