Google has announced that the company has acquired Jibe Mobile, an early leader in Rich Communications Services (RCS) in an effort to bring the standard to a global audience. With RCS, you will be able to take advantage of features that are often times found in modern messaging apps, like WhatsApp and others. Some of these features include group chats, high resolution photos, read indicators and more.
Of course, deploying RCS on Android will take some time, but it is still great to see Google on-board with the new messaging standard.
