After Google released its own, Samsung is now set to allow RCS functionality in its own SMS application. The Korean tech giant has indeed started to deploy these features on its Samsung Messages app.
According to several users on Reddit, Samsung seems to be have started rolling out the RCS features on its own messaging app. The main advantage of this update is the possibility for users to take advantage of RCS functions. Without having to use a third-party application like Google Messages. Concretely, the RCS allows to take advantage of many functionalities. And allows a classic SMS application to get instant chat functions. It is thus possible to send heavy image files, long videos, make audio or video calls or participate in a discussion with others, much like on WhatsApp, Telegram or Facebook Messenger. Above all, the RCS is not limited to a single platform, it can be used by all users of Android smartphones, provided that their messaging application is compatible.
Samsung Messages To SUPPORTS RCS
On Reddit, the person who reported this update said:
“My OnePlus 7 Pro with Android 10 and the latest version of Google Messages can use the RCS to chat with my sisters and my mother who have a Galaxy S8 + with Android 9.0 Pie and the latest version of Samsung Messages ”.
Samsung had already announced last August that its Samsung Messages application would “quickly” take advantage of the RCS. But the Korean firm had not yet given a deadline. It therefore seems that the function has finally started to be deployed. Nevertheless, the deployment seems gradual.
It is worth to noting that Samsung has recently launched the Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A71 as part of the 2020 Galaxy A series of smartphones. The duo come with a revamped design with Infinity-O Super AMOLED displays and L-shaped quad-camera setup at the rear. These phones will succeed the Galaxy A50s and Galaxy A70s launched back in Q3 of 2019.
