March 29, 2016

RCS (Rich Communication Services) got a large boost at Mobile World Congress with the announcement from Google that they will support RCS.  RCS is essentially SMS/MMS that can work over IP networks and can enable presence and location, and sharing of media.  Kind of sounds familiar, except this is an app that is from your service provider, which adds much value to them.  It’s available on some newer Androids, but not iPhones.If you have a newer Android, this feature could have value to you.

Dialogic, of course, has had a published API for over 30 years.
