T-Mobile Working With Google to Make RCS Available to Its Prepaid Customers

Google and T-Mobile are said to be working together to improve the messaging experience of Android users on T-Mobile and Metro by T-Mobile.

As announced by T-Mobile, they will be using a full standards-based RCS Universal Profile 1.0 along with Google's Messages service. Even though RCS has been one of the offerings of T-Mobile, interconnecting this service with Google's allows them to expand the service to their prepaid brand customers.

If you are a T-Mobile or Metro by T-Mobile customer, you will need to use a phone that includes RCS Universal Profile 1.0 support. As of this writing, T-Mobile and Metro by T-Mobile are offering almost 40 devices that come with the feature. The more recent Android phones that will be released also include this feature. You won't need to download anything to get RCS since it is already built into the network of T-Mobile and the messaging app on your device.

In addition to using a capable phone, your recipient should also be using the same chat features offered by Google's Messages app. This will allow you to enjoy its benefits over standard SMS text, such as read receipts, typing indicators, high-res photos and videos, and chatting over Wi-Fi and cellular.

T-Mobile has been offering RCS chat since 2015. During that time, however, it was limited to one Samsung device. With the new improvements announced, the feature is being expanded so that other Android users can enjoy the features of this messaging app.
