Update December 6 at 3:40 p.m. ET: It looks like RCS support is now rolling out to the Verizon Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Verizon published a support page detailing all the new RCS features and it looks like some folks on Reddit are gaining access to the features already. Original article December 5 at 5:09 a.m. ET:Verizon is gearing up to roll out Rich Communication Services (RCS) support for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XLtomorrow the company has confirmed. In a statement to The Verge yesterday Verizon said the new text messaging standard would arrive in Googles Messages appon the Pixels. RCS or Chat as the Google-backed Android version is known is an upgraded version of SMS. It supports lengthier messages higher-quality image and video file transfers message typing indicators message read receipts large group chats and more. Its been in the works for yearsand is now supported by more than 55 carriers though others are still working towards meeting its Universal Profile. Editor’s Pick Googles Hummingbird could make running all apps everywhere a reality Today Google officially launched the very first stable version of Flutter the company’s new app development platform. Our own Gary Sims does a terrific job explaining in detail what Flutter is and how it affects A recent Reddit post regarding Verizon Pixel Chat support supposedly based on information from a Verizon store also suggested it would roll out with additional features such as local [location?] sharing mobile payment sending audio recordings sending stickers and much more. However this wasnt confirmed in Verizons statement. Chat is good news for those who dont use apps like WhatsApp Telegram or Facebook Messenger which have for years had many of the advantages RCS is set to deliver. However there is a major caveat right now in that the features will work only between two RCS-supported devices. Editor’s Pick I got a Google Home Mini for $1 and you can too: Heres how! (US only) A few weeks ago we told you about an insane deal from Spotify: subscribers of the Spotify Premium for Family plan can get a Google Home Mini completely free-of-charge. That deal lasts until December 31 Further and perhaps this is an even greater caveat RCS lacks end-to-end encryption. Its certainly going to be a deal-breaker for some people. RCS is only just getting underway but its already late to the messaging party and ostensibly outmatched by superior online chat apps (though it too can be used over Wi-Fi). Those lacking constant internet access may see better mileage. Verizon has previously pledged to roll out Chat to itsdevices in early 2019. It will probably trickle out to other smartphones over the coming weeks and months.
