The new standard messaging RCS is already here. The new and revamped version Google Messenger is the WhatsApp of operators the world association of operators and related companies GSMA announced that it would arrive before the end of this year.
Google Messenger 2.0 is already activating the messaging support RCS operators are supported, which from today will be able to offer communication services enriched with all the advantages of the popular messaging services, such as group chat, share high-resolution images, videos, audio notes, emojis or stickers from the messages application from Google.
The standard RCS is the successor of the SMS/MMS, which allows you to send rich messages through the data network or through the Wifi network. At the moment we are activating in the united States as a free service to compete with WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger or iMessage. Will have to see if other countries begin to charge for these messages. For the success of the operators would not have to charge, and moment are not doing it.
All messages RCS go through the servers of the operators, as is currently the case with the SMS/MMS. This means that the sending and receiving of messages RCS will not be managed by Google but by our operator. This will be done through the universal profile RCS that offers the platform Jibe Google and the server certificate by the GSMA called Jibe Cloud for the messages to reach as fast as any operator supported.
the main problem with The standard RCS is currently only is implemented in Android and not on all operators, there are still not any compatible app on iOS or Windows Mobile. Therefore, for the moment, the number of contacts is reduced, but this could change over the next few months if Google releases Messenger in other operating systems and activate the RCS support in all the operators of the GSMA.

Google Messenger currently works only on some operators, and only in Android. Finally, Google Allo is integrated with the Assistant Google and features intelligent as the quick responses.
at the time Google will have three courier services: The messaging service with cloud synchronization and multi-device Hangouts, the messaging service smart Allo to WhatsApp but is managed by Google and finally your messaging application on Messenger with the standard RCS of the operators.
