Mobile Begins ‘Advanced Messaging’ Rollout With iMessage-like Features.

This will come as welcome news for people – like myself – who have experienced the problems caused by so many messaging apps on siloed platforms that don’t work well together.T-Mobile has often been on the vanguard of new services such as VoLTE and now Advanced Messaging, so it will be interesting to see how the other carriers respond and how long before they do.

T-Mobile also took this time to throw a light jab at the competition, stating, “For now, this is something you can only get at T-Mobile- though I expect our announcement will be a wake-up call for the old carriers to get moving with RCS, so customers can enjoy these next-gen services working across wireless providers”.If that sounds appealing, you’ll need to get the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime, as T-Mobile says it is the first handset (which arrived at the carrier today) that it has with Advanced Messaging.T-Mobile’s Advanced Messaging is built on RCS, or Rich Communications Services; a GSMA standard which other operators are expected to use in the future. With T-Mobile Advanced Messaging, consumers “won’t need to search out, download, install, setup and register an extra app” to engage is such messaging activities as “near real-time chat”, being able to see what others are typing, getting notified that a message has been read, and sharing high-res photos and videos up to 10MB as if sending a regular text message, he said. When you have a plethora of instant messaging apps at your disposal and ephemeral messaging services like Snapchat sending a text message seems rather pedestrian but T-Mobile wants to change that.

Advanced Messaging, which T-Mobile said runs on a standard that any carrier can use, allows you to fire off group messages or have a near-real-time chat with another person. Bellevue, Wash. – T-Mobile launched an advanced messaging service based on Rich Communications Services (RCS) technology, which delivers messaging capabilities previously available only with third-party apps. Today, T-Mobile announced a new feature for its customers that addresses a number of those limitations while still preserving the ease and ubiquity of standard text messages.

Text messaging pales in comparison to messaging apps, so much so that you likely reserve texting for those acquaintances you don’t have a connection with on Messenger or elsewhere. T-Mobile’s CTO just announced support for “Advanced Messaging” on the Rich Communication Services (RCS) standard on T-Mobile, and it’s starting its rollout now. For example, better group messaging with real-time chat, delivery and read receipts, plus the ability to share larger files. “You’ve likely had to hunt down proprietary messaging apps and recruit family and friends to get on board with them”, Ray explained.

Much like you see on 3rd-party apps and services from Facebook and Google, users can see when friends are replying to messages, making for a more personal messaging experience. T-Mobile is launching some new functionality for its smartphone users today, and surprisingly CEO and President John Legere hasn’t gone on the warpath against rival carriers when making the announcement.
