T-Mobile and Google have teamed up to expand RCS for T-Mobile and Metro by T-Mobile Android customers, so they now get that same upgraded RCS experience when texting with Android users on other networks across the globe.
Back in June Google began rolling out RCS in the UK and France, bypassing carriers. Google is now doing the same in the US. If you already have Messages, you’ll be prompted to enable chat features in the coming weeks. If you don’t have Messages, you can download it on the Play Store. Google expects this service to be broadly available in the U.S. by the end of year.
IMImobile has teamed up with US network software giant Mavenir to launch an RCS messaging initiative. IMImobile and Mavenir will work together with global operator mutual customers, integrated RCS enablement technologies and a shared vision to increase adoption of this new channel globally.
IMImobile has announced it has conditionally agreed to acquire US-based mobile engagement and RCS Business Messaging leader 3Cinteractive. The acquisition allows IMImobile to increase its footprint in North America and become the global market leader for RCS (Rich Communications Services) Business Messaging.
Today, IMImobile is releasing a unified Rich Communication Service (RCS) messaging API alongside its low-code toolset within its enterprise cloud communications platform, IMIconnect. The update will allow organisations to build richer message-based communications, so their customers can interact with them via messaging apps using text and images.
