What Is Rcs Chat

Rich Communication Services (RCS) or Chat is a new messaging protocol that is intended as a replacement to SMS and MMS on Android. RCS packs richer features, including many of those available in the best instant messaging platforms like WhatsApp, Telegram, and Signal. RCS also mimics Apple’s iMessage in some ways.
