'we will be adding support for RCS Universal Profile, the standard as currently published by the GSM Association.' Now, if Google would support the RCS Universal Profile, the standard as currently published by the GSM Association, we'd have something.

Google jibe is their universal on its message app , then you have Google messages that are on Samsung carrier version devices which are carrier RCS so that's going to change soon where everyone will be on jibe and get rid of carriers RCS platform and use Google universal version. This is in the US I'm referring to.

It will be nice not to hear google whining about this every chance they get. I am more interested in how apps like whatsapp, Telegram, signal etc, are going to integrate with each other.

So how might this all end up a few years down the road? Everyone's short messages being handled by a federated arrangement of distributed RCS Servers operated by Google and Apple, if carrier RCS Servers are not going to be part of the picture?

Presumably, we aren't going to be left with everything being handled by only just Google servers?

It would be nice for everyone, regardless of what brand of device they use, to be able to communicate and send and receive photos and files without any degradation in quality.

Only Yanks care about something as trivial as bubble colours in text apps.

Apple only did this so they could show how easy it is to drop Android. Remember, Apple hasn't innovated anything in years, now they're begging for people to spend money in the "walled garden" of Apple.
