Can my Android phone receive RCS messages?
Presented as SMS 2.0, RCS (Rich Communication Services) is making a remarkable entry into the telecommunications market in 2021. Moreover, the Mobile Marketing Association is already predicting that more than 30 million mobiles in France will be able to receive RCS by the end of the year.
In the infographic below we explain step by step how to activate RCS messaging on your own mobile phone now!
The RCS, a new generation SMS
RCS promises to offer the same features that make our favourite services such as Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp so popular as the SMS / MMS of yesteryear. Messages with powerful, varied and unlimited multimedia content such as images, videos, audio, documents (pdf, xls, doc, etc.), maps, QR codes, geolocation sharing, payments, links to the brand's website or native guided and suggested responses (buttons and carousels).
smsmode©, official partner of French operators
Our company was selected by the French operators to participate in the pilot phase. This phase enabled us to start carrying out deployment tests. Brands have had the opportunity to test this new channel in real conditions and in "life size". Feedback is being prepared and we will share it with you shortly.
It should be noted that this new mobile format was launched in France at the end of 2020 and that the first stage will continue until the end of Q1 2021.
