RCS: Texting Like Your Favorite Apps

Think of RCS as a major upgrade to traditional texting. Just like with apps like WhatsApp and Telegram, you’ll be able to send high-quality pictures and videos, share voice messages, and even pinpoint locations with your friends – all within the familiar Google Messages app.

On top of that, RCS lets you create group chats with lots of people, just like you can on other messaging apps. You’ll also know when your messages have been delivered and even see if someone is typing a reply, making texting feel more like a real conversation.
