Some of us might argue the biggest boost to next generation carrier messaging (Rich Communications Services) could well come from a commitment to support RCS by Google, across its Android platform.
Google says Jibe Mobile is joining Google to help us bring RCS to a global audience. Jibe is a leading provider of RCS services and they’ll continue helping carriers easily deploy RCS to their users.
Deploying RCS to create an even better messaging experience on Android will take time and collaboration throughout the wireless industry, says Mike Dodd, Android RCSsoftware engineer. “We’re excited to team up with mobile operators, device makers and the rest of the Android ecosystem to support RCS standards and help accelerate their deployment in a more consistent way.”
