Google Soon Going To Introduce Next-Gen Texting On Android Platform

The delay of Google’s RCS chat on the Android platform can be blamed on the carriers. The basis of next-gen texting depends on networks supporting one at a time. Android users in the UK and France will be offered RCS services by Google later in June. The company will provide them with the option to opt-in through the messaging app of the platform.

Instead of making use of a central server, Android messages will ping each participant in a chat in order to check if they support RCS. In case, you support it, you will get read receipts, high-quality media and many other benefits offered by the technology. Although Google does send messages from its servers this more of a decentralized approach and therefore, it doesn’t need any carrier support.

However, RCS does come with a few drawbacks. It is not an end-to-end encrypted system and thus, it is vulnerable to intruders reading your messages. It is also dependent on your number and therefore, you won’t be able to use it on non-phone devices. Also, it will require temporary attached files such as IMSI and phone number. However, the company has stated that they are soon going to find a solution. Also, messages will not disappear when you switch to some other phone that doesn’t have RCS.

The company has not decided on a date to introduce the app to other countries yet. Not just that but even Apple have not shown any interest in supporting the RCS system. Therefore, we don’t know how long it’s going to take before RCS is introduced to us. With the introduction of this new system, Android messages will become more fun and livelier in the future. Till then, we can only wait and deal with the existing Android messaging system.
