Big 4 U.S. Carriers Form Group to Make RCS a Reality

The big four carriers in the country are working together to make Rich Communications Service (RCS) messaging a reality.

Earlier today, it was announced that Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T, and Verizon have teamed up to form the Cross Carrier Messaging Initiative (CCMI). This group aims to make RCS messaging more available to its customers throughout the country.

The group is also aiming to develop and deploy a new messaging service that uses RCS standard in 2020. According to the report, the service will launch on Android devices.

With the initiative, the group hopes they will be able to come up with an RCS messaging experience that provides a seamless and interoperable service not just in the country but throughout the world. As a result of this, the carriers get to provide its users a better messaging experience. They not only get to send high-quality photos and videos, they can use the service to pay bills, schedule appointments, chat with businesses, and many more.

As of this writing, this is all we know about CCMI and its RCS messaging goals. More information should be released soon once the group takes things off the ground.
