RCS features will work between Android Messages and Samsung Messages users

Rich communication services messaging - RCS for short - is a fan favorite candidate to replace it. The end goal, naturally, is to make RCS more prevalent on Android, and teaming up with the biggest Android manufacturer seems like a good way to do that.

For the uninitiated, RCS can probably best be described as an evolution of SMS.

As Samsung's press release puts it, this collaboration will give users of Samsung's Messages app and Android's stock messaging app "the ability to chat over WiFi, create rich group chats, see typing indicators and read receipts, and share high-resolution photos and videos across platforms".

Google and Samsung have already been working together to achieve RCS compatibility between their respective messaging apps, but with this expanded partnership, the two are doubling down on that interoperability.

Well, they told us that they are great partners or something and that one day their apps will play nice together, assuming your Samsung phone is on a carrier who supports RCS (which again, is like 1.5 today).

Furthermore, Samsung says it's also using this partnership to bring RCS support to a number of its exisitng phones as part of the Android 9 Pie update. Moreover, Samsung announced it will include native support RCS messaging in all new Samsung Galaxy smartphones, starting with those on a set of carriers that have or will soon launch RCS.
