With the rise of instant messaging applications and social networking platforms, SMS messaging and the intersection of our daily lives are becoming less and less, mainly used to receive a variety of verification code and query information. But now, Google is trying to make the edge of the SMS SMS as a future mobile user standards. Messenger applications responsible for handling SMS messages on the Android side are now renamed to "Android Messages", which also comes with a lot of new features like iMessage.


China has launched a new platform based on Rich Communications Services (RCS) technology that allows the establishment of commercial SMS, warning and other communication types, and the addition of traditional SMS text messages can not access the function, to achieve mass SMS, high resolution Rate photos and read receipts and other information.

This means that you can receive a travel board like a two-dimensional code, and set the traffic limit for Android Messenger. Companies such as Gamestop, Time Inc., Virgin Trains and Walgreens will be the first customers to send advanced messaging using this new platform. Google's own application currently supports RCS, Android Police said that this feature has been in November last year on the line.

This is largely due to Jibe Mobile, a RCS service provider that Google acquired in 2015. Amir Sarhangi, the company's chief executive, is responsible for extending RCS support. With his help, Google has persuaded a number of operators to support the Universal Profile standard to ensure that RCS information can be successfully sent to the customer's mobile phone.

Mobile operators Deutsche Telekom, Globe, Orange and Vodafone have signed an agreement to pre-install Android Messenger on their phones. In addition, including LG, Motorola, Sony, HTC and Nokia, including a number of mainstream mobile phone manufacturers will also get rid of traditional SMS applications.

RCS is used to ensure that all partner companies can receive text messages, even if they do not have Android Messenger installed. Naturally, Google's work is far from over, similar to Verizon, T-Mobile and AT & amp; T and other US telecom operators, other countries and regions, as well as Samsung and Apple, including mobile phone manufacturers are not widely deploy.
