Google Messages would indicate you when you're logged into RCS

26 April 2019 2

We have been hearing a lot about the RCS (Rich Communication Services) protocol that aims to replace the much widely used SMS services. A recent report suggested how 97 percent of the smartphone users send SMS which makes it one of the most used features on a phone. Though besides this, SMS still remains a major hindrance when it comes to sending rich media content like we’re used on through modern instant messaging apps like WhatsApp.


Different telecom operators are aiming to roll out RCS technology support through their platforms and third-party apps are also incorporating the feature to allow the use of RCS content through them. Google Messages is one of them, which was previously known as Android Messages.

The app is under works in regards to RCS and the recent update shows that clearly. Now Google Messages would show connection status as the app got analyzed by a team of a tech enthusiast. The status would show when a user connects to RCS which would indicate that they could send content through RCS medium instead of SMS. Likewise, the code of Anti-Spam has also been discovered under the hood in Google Messages app, which could help the users avoid spammy advertisement messages.

Are you excited for RCS technology to replace SMS? Let us know in the comment section below.

What would be the advantage of using RCS? Unfortunately, talking about Rich Communication Services only isn't giving much of a hint. Any comparison factor?

Understand it as the difference between Notepad and MS Word app. Notepad is simple note-taking app where you can't format text separately, as against in Word where you can apply different font style and color even to the same word.
