Better carrier messaging for everyone
Texting changed the way we communicate, but it’s out of date. Today we want messaging that lets us do things like share high-res photos and larger files, chat with a group, know when messages are read, or make video calls.
Rich Communication Services (RCS) makes all this possible, and now the mobile industry is coming together to bring it to users everywhere.
The universal RCS profile
While RCS messaging was designed to move mobile networks beyond texting, different approaches made it difficult and costly for carriers to bring it to users.
By aligning on the GSMA's universal RCS profile - with the Android Messages RCS client app - carriers can now provide RCS messaging across the Android ecosystem.
