Google, on Thursday, said that Texting on Android Phones is all set to be simpler with the new RCS’ rollout. Yes, Google started rolling out its new messaging app named RCS for the users of the United States. The aim behind launching this app is to simplify the process of texting just like Apple’s iMessage service but on the Android platform.
People who want to use Google’s new RCS messaging platform can start using it from today itself. If you are not aware of Google’s new communication app that this guide will give you all the useful information about this platform.
RCS stands for rich communication services. It is also known as the successor of the predecessor i.e. SMS. The market is full of instant messaging services which comes with a number of advanced features such as typing indicator, read receipts, group chat and many other more features. Google’s RCS will also give you the same set of features with a smooth interface.
High-quality images will also be shared between the devices using this app. There are many advanced messaging apps which don’t support end-to-end encryption, but this app provides full security to your messages and you can even enable the encryption features on it.
To start using this app, the first thing you need to do is install the Android Messages app. RCS works with the Android Messages app itself. Most Android users are able to use this function within the Android Messages app. If you use a Samsung device, then you will have to download this app from the Play Store as an additional messaging app.
Google will release regular updates to this app once it is globally released. It is in the initial stage and will send new updates regularly to improve its services. Google said that the full rollout of this app will be done at the end of this year.
If we talk about Apple’s iMessage, it doesn’t support the RCS feature yet. Upon asking for the availability of this feature, Apple has denied commenting on this.
