Yesterday, we reported that T-Mobile was in the process of testing Google’s/Jibe’s RCS implementation. T-Mobile has had its own version of RCS (called Advanced Messaging) since 2015, but most implementations of the RCS technology, it is not compatible across carriers like SMS.
T-Mobile implementing the Jibe Universal RCS Profile, which Sprint and (soon) Rogers support, would certainly be better for users than the current Advanced Messaging system. Unfortunately, there is no substantial evidence that it is happening at this point.
Google Messenger RCS support is likely not in public testing for T-Mobile after all was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
