Google and the carriers want to compete with the standard RCS against WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business also using the new standard RCS Business.

companies will use RCS Business to send rich messages, such as images, videos, audio recordings, QR codes, or direct responses to chat with your bot. But what is more important is that in the name of the company will see a badge that will tell us that that account is verified and we will display the logo of the company, as an indicator of who is actually the company who has sent us the message, and not an attacker.

This check the companies also has started to reach the SMS. In Google Messages > Settings > SMS verified you can activate to verify the identity of the sender. Google will only check if the number that sent us the message really is that company to add the logo and check the logo of the company.


we Hope Google doesn’t take in to activate this function in most countries, as this security measure will help us to prevent phishing attacks.
