Mobile Announces RCS-Based Messaging Service.

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.T-Mobile is rolling out new text messaging features designed to bring regular old SMS up to speed with advanced services like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and iMessage.

The new service doesn’t cost anything more for T-Mobile customers, and the carrier says that it is just the first of many new features coming that are built on the RCS standard. “With T-Mobile Advanced Messaging, you won’t need to search out, download, install, setup and register an extra app to get all that and more”, Ray said. For all the advances in smartphones in the past decade or so, text messaging hasn’t changed much outside of proprietary systems like Apple’s iMessage or BlackBerry’s BBM.

The idea is to overhaul the industry standard carriers use for delivering messages, to create one common platform that comes with all the features people expect from texting apps these days, including typing notifications, read receipts and file sharing. This is largely thanks to Advanced Messaging being built on Rich Communications Services standard, a GSMA messaging standard that other carriers may adopt in the future.

RCS observed personal-contacts inside the phone’s phone describe which could agree to and take part in a you tube video dial and brought that is actually as an alternative to engage. 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.

T-Mobile today announced several new affordable devices, including the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime which is the very first device to come with an industry-first collection of messaging enhancements also being launched from T-Mobile today. Of course, since T-Mobile is the first and only USA carrier to support RCS, you won’t be able to take advantage of that last perk until AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint add support (if they decide to add it at all).

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. Sprint also half-heartedly offered an RCS-compatible downloadable third-party client in 2013, at which point wireless analyst Dean Bubley termed RCS “an undead Zombie technology… we’ve still got a few lonely operators kicking over its rotting corpse at the moment”.
