Google’s most important feature is end-to-end encryption for the Messages app. Google is now rolling out an end-to-end encryption feature to everyone who has access to RCS. The security feature was earlier available only for beta users. When a message is encrypted, users will see a lock icon on the send button. For this, both the sender and receiver should have chat features enabled and they should have an active internet connection. Google says that end-to-end encryption is available for face-to-face conversations. There is no information on when it will be available for group chat.

Android Earthquake Alert System
Google is now introducing the Android Earthquake alert system to more countries such as Turkey, Philippines, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. The alert system was first introduced in 2020 so that people in the affected areas could get an alert a few seconds before the earthquake. The Android Earthquake Alerts System was recently launched in New Zealand and Greece.
Google said, “We are prioritizing the launch of Earthquake Alert in countries with high earthquake risk and expect to launch this feature in more and more countries in the coming year.”
‘Star’ mark can be used to mark the conversation on Google Messages app
Google is adding the ability to “star” important conversations. Users can now bookmark special messages and quickly return to them later. All you have to do is tap and hold the message, then start it. If you want to revisit a message, such as your friend’s address or a photo of your family get-together, all you have to do is tap on the Starred category. Google says the Starred Messages feature will be available for the Messages app “in the coming weeks”.
Gboard receives emoji kitchen recommendation
After typing the message, Gboard users will now see a suggestion in the emoji kitchen. In simple words, Google’s keyboard will suggest you to create your custom emoji based on your message. However, emoji kitchen suggestions are currently only available to Gboard beta users. Google has confirmed that the feature will be rolling out to all Gboard users for text messages in English, Spanish and Portuguese on devices running Android 6.0 and above.
open apps using voice
Now you can ask Google to open or search for your favorite apps using your voice. For example, you can say things like “Hey Google, pay my Capital One bill” or “Hey Google, check my miles on Zomato” to open the app directly and complete the task.
New Features of Android Auto
Android Auto users can now personalize their launcher screen and set dark mode manually, right from the phone. The search giant has also added new app experiences to help fuel your drive. EV charging, parking and navigation apps are now available for use in Android Auto. Now you can quickly scroll to the top of the list. Also, A to Z button is also available in the scroll bar.
In a blog post, the company said that it has improved the messaging experience for apps like Messages and WhatsApp to make it easier to send or read messages. “These Android Auto features are available on phones running Android 6.0 or above and when connected to your compatible car,” Google said.
