Google Messages gets RCS support for everyone in Spain
Google has been taking RCS matters into its own hands as of late. After trying to work with OEMs and carriers to get greater support, Google started pushing RCS on its own last year. The Messages app got RCS support in the UK and France last summer and now Spain is joining the fun.
Everyone in Spain who uses Google’s Messages app should now have RCS. Google reached an agreement with carriers Orange, Másmóvil, Telefónica, and Vodafone to make RCS available to everyone in the country. As with the rollout in previous places, users only have to agree to enable “Chat” features when the pop-up appears.
RCS brings typing indicators, larger group chats, larger file transfers, chat over Wi-Fi, and more. It’s basically a much more modern version of SMS. You can tell if both people in a conversation are using RCS by the “Chat message” text in the edit box.
