Messages by Google is the official Google app for texting over 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 that you can focus on connecting with the people and businesses you care about — no matter what device they use.
See when friends are typing or when they have read your message, share high-quality images and videos, easily add people to a group chat, and experience an all-around richer messaging experience.
End-to-end encryption is a security method that keeps your eligible communications secure, so no one (including Google and third parties) can read or view your messages or attachments.
Receive warnings about suspected spam and unsafe websites. Easily block and report potential spammers to help stop unwanted and fraudulent messages.
Share high-quality videos directly from your Google Photos library.
Messages can be automatically sorted into personal and business categories. Nudge replies remind you to follow up on a message, and birthday reminders make sure you send well wishes on time.
Keep the conversation going no matter what device you're on. Chat with friends from 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.
