Google Plans To Provide RCS Chat Directly To All Android Users

1 month ago   |   By Android Headlines

Google essentially sees RCS messaging as an Android equivalent to iMessage, and it's ready to push it forward on its own, as carriers haven't really been bending over backwards in order to do so.
RCS is aimed to replace SMS messaging, and considering that relationship between carriers and smartphone manufacturers have been delaying the proper release for RCS, Google has decided to take over.
The company will offer RCS messaging to Android users in the UK and France later this month. In time, RCS should become available to all Android users, and thus act as an Android alternative to...

Google has been talking for a long time about replacing simple SMS messaging with RCS to offer a more WhatsApp-like experience from your basic messaging app, and now, finally, it's about to make the move.

With Google taking control of RCS, the service could become the company's version of iMessage before long, and it means users will be able to experience it sooner than they might have expected.

Google Is Not Waiting For Carriers To Rollout RCS Chat

1 month ago   |   By Ubergizmo

As many of you have heard, Google is attempting to redefine the humble text message with RCS. The upside to this system is that it will offer an enhanced texting experience that is universal across multiple devices. It is also meant to challenge the likes of Apple's iMessage which is only exclusive to iOS devices. However, the only problem with the new RCS system is that Google has been waiting for carriers to rollout the feature, but unfortunately, it seems that carriers are taking longer than they should. So much so that according to a report from The Verge, Google seems to be taking...
