What Are the Benefits of RCS?
RCS Messaging seeks to bring SMS to the next generation with some of the features that major over-the-top messaging application providers like WhatsApp, iMessage, and Facebook Messenger offer today like video and audio messages, high-resolution imagery, read receipts, and real-time response notifications.
Because RCS is a newer protocol, it is not yet supported by all device manufacturers or all carriers.
