Verizon to bring RCS support as early as 2019

19 November 2018 3

RCS messaging is a much richer way of communication and is here to replace the conventional SMS messaging which doesn’t support more than smiles. The new RCS technology has been under works to make it become a reality and telecom carriers like Verizon are aiming to launch it as early as 2019 where Verizon would first have its own version of RCS though later might adapt to the Universal Profile that would be rolled out by Google which would work with multiple carriers and OEMs.


Chances are that this technology would be out by February 2019 as hinted by a report published by Fierce Wireless while we didn’t get much insight about the exact time frame from Verizon. On the other hand, GSMA shared that it would roll out Universal Profile 1.0 soon though we’re yet to get any official confirmation from Verizon that when we could expect the telecom operator to adopt Universal Profile.

If you’re confused here, Universal Profile is an industry agreed system, toolset, standards and feature set developed by GSMA to make the implementation of RCS technology easy for the world to adopt. Once this system is out, the world could then be able to use the Google’s Chat Platform which would be a default messaging platform (to replace SMS) that everyone around the world would be able to use which would support read receipts, high-quality photos, improved group chat and more.

While the adoption of RCS doesn’t seem to be coming fast around the world as the industry is still quite far away, still the commitment of Verizon to RCS is quite applaudable.
