Google One now backs up Android

Primarily known as Google's subscription service for expanded cloud storage, Google One now offers automatic phone backups. Google One also keeps backups of original photos, videos, and multimedia messages (MMS).

Today Google announced a new value-add, offering automatic phone backup for Android users to Google One. RCS could be a part of that as well, but it depends on your phone, carrier, and the messaging app you use.

Messages, photos and contacts will now be automatically backed up with Google One.

As for Google Photos, you are already backing up for free to Google Photos, I'd imagine.

If you don't have a Google One membership yet, you might consider one after the latest improvements the paid storage service has just received. Going forward, you can tell Google One to automatically backup a number of items on your phone, with restore abilities available. With Google One backups, you are uploading the original quality files too.
