Google wants to revolutionize SMS with the launch of a new email service

TEXTO 2.0 To compete with Messenger and iMessage and impose its standard on all phones, Google has forged many partnerships
After Talk, Hangouts, Allo, up Chat, Google's new email service. With this new tool, the US giant intends to modernize the SMS.
This new standard will be installed on Android smartphones and phone operators "within 6 to 12 months," Google told The Verge.

Rich messages
It is not a mobile application but a tool capable of being grafted, thanks to an upcoming update, on the basic service of SMS, Android Messages. Unlike SMS, Chat uses the RCS protocol ("Rich Communication Service") developed for more than ten years.

Advantage: sending and receiving messages are related to the data and not to the network. In addition, the size of the messages is larger, which allows integrating images and videos of better quality, GIFs. The standard also supports group conversations.

Stand up against Messenger and iMessage
Google is trying to oust its competitors Facebook and Apple and their Messenger and iMessage. Like the latter, the chat service will send the message as a text message to a recipient who does not have the Android standard. To do this, Google has convinced about sixty companies to follow him. Samsung, Huawei, LG, and ZTE have already agreed. In France, only Orange is currently committed to supporting this system.

No launch date has yet been given. "By next year, I think most users will be able to benefit from this experience," said Anil Sabharwal, in charge of the project. If Microsoft has agreed to offer this standard, Apple has not announced anything yet.
