RCS in India ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ -Thoughts about it๐ŸŒ.


Protocol thought:๐Ÿ’‚
- A protocol that was made to replace SMSes. The RCS chat is what makes a real difference between SMS and RCS Messaging๐Ÿ‘ฅ๐Ÿ‘ค๐ŸŒ

Thought of using it:๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป
- Using  RCS Chat  allows group chats, video, audio, and high-resolution images and looks and functions like iMessage, WhatsApp and other rich messaging apps.

Supported by๐ŸŒ
-Messages app by Google and Samsung's Chat application on Samsung devices are the only two applications that support RCS.

- Supports AirtelVodafone, and Reliance Jio networks
Also, available on all Android devices running at least Android 5.0 Lollipop.

 images, text and other forms of media can be sent without any hassle..

Gif A: RCS Message Transfer - graphical representation

- If mine or my colleague's internet was down, we had an option to retry sending the message as an SMS/MMS.

- You can always be connected with your friends and family whether your internet was turned on or off

-Also, it helps save carrier charges when you are connected to the internet by forwarding them with the RCS protocol.

- Lack  end-to-end encryption available in some current messaging tools such as WhatsApp.๐Ÿ“ฑ

How to use RCS

Fig A: setting up Google's RCS

Useful Thought๐Ÿค“
- we could easily send and receive messages over the internet and sent messages appeared with a dark blue background and white text. ๐Ÿ“ฑ๐Ÿคณ

-With this protocol disconnected due to internet issue, we had a light blue bubble with dark blue text and an SMS text below the send button. ๐Ÿง—๐Ÿง—๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿ‘‡

- We also have options to retry, when the connection failed. One could set it to always send SMSes or ask first or never send an SMS depending on how they want to use it and how much their carrier charges them .๐ŸŽซ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ

# At last, RCS is just getting started and will grow .๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿ‘

- Depending on the carriers is a big issue as protocol means lost revenue for them and they will try to suppress it as much as possible. โ˜„๏ธโ˜„๏ธ

- As of now, the RCS protocol is not groundbreaking, but with careful execution, it can become the next big thing in mobile communication.โšกโšก

โˆ† Note๐Ÿ“”๐Ÿ“• : RCS is not a proprietary protocol, It can easily be adopted on iPhones and other Apple products.๐Ÿงผ๐Ÿงผ
(Finally providing a simple communication for all, but right now it's only in Android )
