Huawei has announced that it is collaborating with Google to offer Jibe to carrier partners, as part of an integrated solution with the company’s IMS service. Huawei Teams up with Google to Bring RCS to Upcoming Smartphones.
RCS helps users to send high-quality pictures, participate in group chats, location sharing, and video calling. Other services like WhatsApp, Hangouts, and Kik provide features like this, and we hope that it would be great if your default messaging app adopt RCS.
Huawei Teams up with Google to Bring RCS to Upcoming Smartphones
Huawei is teaming up with Google to push RCS. Both companies has announced that all Huawei upcoming smartphones will include Android Messages as the default messaging app. Android Messages supports Jibe, Google’s RCS hub, by default. Having that default support built into the app makes it easier for carriers to support the standard. Some smartphones companies like Samsung are also pushing RCS, however they have built their own RCS hub.
We can say that, Huawei will help Google push adoption of RCS. Before couple of years Google’s push for Rich Communication Services (RCS) adoption is slow.
Huawei will switch to Android Messages as the default SMS/RCS app on its devices in the coming months. This is a positive step, RCS still has a long way to go before universal adoption.
