Discussion on: Will RCS (Rich Communication Service) ever succeed?

As it stands, I don’t see RCS ever becoming a thing. It will quietly augment SMS when both users have it enabled and most people will still send SMS. SMS is largely used for notifications from services (usage alert, verification codes, ads, bank alerts, etc) outside of NA. There isn’t any killer feature to have people convert over. It still uses data unlike SMS, isn’t encrypted, lacks features of telegram, whatsapp and others.

Ntm, Google RCS requires you to use the google Messages app and it isn’t available at all on iOS.

Obviously I agree with you in all points :-)
