What is an RCS Message ?
RCS or Rich Communication Services is an Android protocol that aims to make SMS/MMS messages evolve into a communication channel enriched with multimedia features of instant messaging applications such as WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, WeChat, etc. on your traditional SMS channel.
You will then be able to share: images, videos, files, payments, gifs, buttons, maps, etc… and enrich the quality of your conversations.
This is the well-known Android version of iMessage from Apple.
Discover the features of RCS Messaging
Make an impression on your customers and prospects with the multimedia content available. They are numerous and without size limitation: images, videos, documents, QR codes, payments, geolocation sharing, etc. Ideal to boost your exchanges.
RCS Messaging can be used for marketing purposes (promoting sales, private sales, promotional offers, etc.) and/or transactional purposes (taking reservations with payment integrated into your conversation).
RCS messages are delivered through an internet connection, so delivery times are much faster. If RCS messaging is not supported by your user’s phone or carrier, the RCS message is sent as a traditional SMS.
