RCS, or Rich Communications Services, is mostly enhanced SMS and MMS. To experience it, you need your carrier to support it, your device to support it, and a compatible app. It works with text, images, and video, and you can use it to send both individual and group text messages.
The RCS is the next generation protocol that lets users experience cool features like typing indicators, confirmed sent messages and clearer images. This emerging technology is on the course to replace the previous or the outdated version of the Google’ messaging app.
The popular search engines Google is on the verge to push this protocol to be a ubiquitous feature of Android which will look like the Apple iMessage. It seems quite unusual that not all carriers RCS platform would be connected.
To throw light on the bizarre nature of the platform, Google’s VP of communication products Nick Fox, said that Google is introducing a model called “hub” to connect carriers together over Rich Communication Service (RCS). This will eventually save a lot of time and resources.
