Google and Huawei team up to spread RCS messaging, all Huawei smartphones to get Android Messages app


Google and Huawei are partnering up to accelerate the adoption of RCS messaging. Google has announced that its RCS-based Android Messages app will soon get integrated across Huawei's entire smartphone portfolio:  

As you might know, RCS is supposed to supersede the widely known SMS/MMS standard. Although it offers a lot more than its predecessors, many carriers have still not made the jump to the new technology. Google has designed its own Jibe Cloud platform to help telecoms launch RCS in a quick and easy manner, and now Huawei will help push the adoption process further by offering Jibe as an integrated part of its IMS (IP multimedia subsystem) network to carrier partners.

We don't have an exact ETA for the integration of Android Messages across Huawei's smartphone selection, as the company says that the rollout will happen "in the following months".
