T-Mobile announces Google Messages will soon become its default SMS app
T-Mobile is likely to be the first US carrier to make Google Messages the default SMS app for its customers using Android smartphones. The advanced RCS messaging solution will offer T-Mobile users important improvements and advanced chat features such as:
- sending and receiving better quality photos and videos
- chatting over Wi-Fi or data
- knowing when your message is read
- sharing reactions
- enjoying more dynamic and engaging group chats
Also, T-Mobile revealed that after Google kicked off the rollout of end-to-end encryption for one-on-one RCS chats between people who use Messages back in November, the deployment will continue throughout 2021 until all T-Mobile customers will benefit from improved security.
