Android 15 to bring a new Contact Keys feature similar to iOS 17’s Constant Key Verification

Published

on

By


Google is actively working on its next iteration of Android 15, as it has already made Android 15 beta 3.1 available to download. With the initial beta of Android 15, Google has introduced a new E2eeContactKeysManager API, designed to facilitate end-to-end encryption in Android applications. 

The giant claims this new API was developed for storing public encryption keys. The giant has designed this system in a way that integrates with its contact app to permit users to manage and verify the public keys of their contacts in one place. 

Google introduced the API with Android 15. Google Play Services will manage the functionality regarding contact keys, and the monitoring of the code in a recent beta version has made it quite possible to acknowledge strings that offer interesting information on how it will work. 

Three notable tasks appear in the Google Play services, which are as follows: 

  • For onboarding 
  • For viewing the QR code
  • For scanning the QR code, 

These tasks are being speculated on by the strings that refer to the functionality reported by one of our colleagues, Android Authority

It seems that Contact Keys will rely on Google Contacts for its interface. Users who want to ensure that all of their E2E applications are encrypted can scan the QR code housed in the other person’s Google Contact application. On the other hand, Apple, with iOS 17.2, introduced a feature called Constant Key Verification, which is quite similar to this feature. The contact key verification feature permits you to receive automatic alerts to verify that only you are communicating with the people you want. This feature helps to avoid the risk of provoking cyberattacks and ensuing awful surprises. 

At the time, Android 15 is still in the developing phase and is expected to go stable live soon.
