Ever since Google introduced the Messages for Web service, you have used a QR code scan to verify the connection between your computer and phone (or tablet). By verifying that you were the device’s owner through the code scan, your secondary device was granted permission to view, reply to, and modify your communications.
Users of Google Fi, who just utilize their Fi account to log in to the web portal, are the main exception in this case.
Fortunately, it appears that authentication will become simpler, more user-friendly, and possibly even a little more enjoyable for all parties. 9to5Google’s APK breakdown suggests that Google is probably developing an account-based approach for Messages authentication. This implies that everyone can link their account to the internet by signing into the same Google account they use on their phones, not just Fi subscribers. Simple!
There might also be a two-factor authentication system based on emojis as an additional security measure. Emojis will be displayed to you when you log in to Messages for Web. To confirm that it’s you, you’ll then need to tap that same collection of emojis on your phone. On the other hand, you can break the connection by clicking the “No, it’s not me” link.
The system’s auditory appeal surpasses that of the QR code scanning technique. It seems, though, that Google will continue to support that method if you would like it. Although we anticipate that the business would eventually discontinue this approach, it ought to be an option at first.
There’s no way of knowing when (or even if) Google will formally announce or roll out this feature. However, based on 9to5Google’s research, the feature appears to be nearly finished, so we should anticipate it shortly. Perhaps before the year is out?
