Rich Communication Services is a communication protocol between mobile telephone carriers and between phone and carrier, aiming at replacing SMS messages with a text-message system that is richer, provides phonebook polling, and can transmit in-call multimedia. It is part of the broader IP Multimedia Subsystem.
RCS messaging works via mobile data or Wi-Fi, so if the recipient doesn't have cell service but they are on a wireless network, you still have the ability to send them messages without a problem. If playback doesn't begin shortly, try restarting your device.
