Android Q may deliver RCS support to third-party apps, finally simplifying things at least a bit for consumers

Friday, February 8th, 2019

RCS has taken years to gain widespread network support, and we're still suffering through carrier interoperability issues. The current landscape is nothing if not entirely overcomplicated to navigate, especially for consumers. But the subject may become a bit simpler once Android Q rolls around, as pile of new RCS-specific APIs has popped up in AOSP, presumably bound for the next Android release. These APIs may finally provide third-party apps with the ability to work with RCS on supported carriers. 

It's a complicated subject, but the short version is that up until now customers on RCS-compatible carriers have been limited to using just a few apps if they want RCS' features.

Google Fi announces RCS support, rolls out faster 4G LTE coverage in 33 more countries

Monday, January 14th, 2019

Google has been the driving force behind RCS adoption for the past two years, so it has always been confusing that the company's own MVNO network didn't support the technology. That has finally changed, as Google Fi (formerly Project Fi) is now rolling out RCS, along with improved international coverage.

To take advantage of RCS, you'll need to set Android Messages as the default SMS app on your phone. If you're still using the optional Hangouts integration, you will have to turn it off.

Google and Samsung are working together to make sure their RCS platforms get along

Wednesday, September 12th, 2018

SMS is garbage, but here in the US, it's ubiquitous. Rich communication services messaging — RCS for short — is a fan favorite candidate to replace it. The hope is that, eventually, everybody will be able to text everybody else in a way that doesn't suck. Google and Samsung announced today that they're working together to that end, collaborating to make sure each company's RCS platform (and messaging app) plays nice with the other.
