Apple RCS Support Coming To iPhones In 2024

 

 

 

 

Apple has unexpectedly declared today that it will be implementing the RCS (Rich Communication Services) messaging protocol. A software update will introduce the capability “later next year,” offering a plethora of iMessage-like functionalities to users of iPhones and Android phones.

Apple made its choice in response to pressure from competitors such as Google and Samsung, as well as authorities. It also coincides with RCS’s ongoing development into a more sophisticated platform than it before was.

Cross-platform texting now has iMessage-style features thanks to RCS.
An Apple representative told 9to5Mac in a statement that the company thinks RCS would provide improved cross-platform communication interoperability.

ALSO Apple plans to release the 12.9-inch Air and two OLED iPad Pros in early 2024.

 

Later next year, we will be adding support for RCS Universal Profile, the standard as currently published by the GSM Association. We believe RCS Universal Profile will offer a better interoperability experience when compared to SMS or MMS. This will work alongside iMessage, which will continue to be the best and most secure messaging experience for Apple users.

RCS enables cross-platform communications between iPhone and Android smartphones with many features similar to those found in iMessage. This features high-quality photos and videos, typing indicators, read receipts, and more.

According to the business, Apple’s RCS implementation will also enable users to communicate their position with other users inside text threads. In contrast to standard SMS, RCS can be sent via Wi-Fi or mobile data.

But at the same time, iMessage isn’t going anywhere. It will continue to be the messaging platform used for all communication between iPhone users. RCS will simply supplant SMS and MMS and exist separately from iMessage when available. SMS and MMS will also continue to be available as a fallback when needed, Apple says.

This is not Apple opening up iMessage to other platforms. Instead, it’s the company adopting RCS separately from iMessage.

Apple also reiterates that iMessage is far more secure and privacy-friendly than RCS. iMessage is end-to-end encrypted, and Apple just took that up a notch with Advanced Data Protection for Messages in iCloud. Meanwhile, Apple says that RCS does not currently support encryption that is as strong as iMessage.

Apple’s decision to adopt RCS follows years of pressure from some of its competitors, including Samsung and Google. Until today, the company resisted that pressure and instead doubled down on iMessage. It has, however, rolled out some improvements to the SMS experience between iPhone and Android devices.

For example, Apple added better support for Tapbacks in iOS 16 for conversations between iPhone and Android users. With iOS 17, Apple also brought features such as threaded replies and message editing to iPhone users (but not Android users) in SMS group chats.

Finally, Apple says it will work with the GSMA members on ways to further improve the RCS protocol. This particularly includes improving the security and encryption of RCS messages. Apple also told 9to5Mac that it will not use any sort of proprietary end-to-end encryption on top of RCS. Its focus is on improving the RCS standard itself.

Gemini To Get Assistant Routines

Gemini To Get Assistant Routines

 

Assistant Routines may soon be supported on Gemini, according to an APK dissection of the Google app.
One of the main reasons so many are using Google Assistant rather than signing up for Gemini is that it lacks routines.
Regretfully, neither the precise integration of Routines into Gemini nor the possible release date are known

Google first launched Google Assistant Routines back in 2017. You can use this functionality to perform several actions with a single voice command. Saying “Hey Google, let’s watch a movie,” for instance, would cause Assistant to simultaneously turn out the lights, switch on the TV, and put your phone in do not disturb mode.

Even while Google is pitching Gemini, its generative AI-powered assistant, as a replacement for Google Assistant, Gemini still lacks Routines-like functionality. Fortunately, that might not last long.

Based on work-in-progress code, an APK breakdown assists in forecasting features that might be added to a service in the future. It’s possible, though, that these anticipated features won’t be released to the general public.

The Google app for Android is now in beta version 15.24.28.29.arm64 beta. We discovered a work-in-progress page that makes explicit reference to Assistant Routines and how Gemini would support them. This page is viewable in the screenshot below, which we must stress is a work in progress:

Assistant Routines

Based on the information available on this website, it seems that Gemini will not be getting its own Routines system—at least not quite yet. Rather, it seems that Gemini will allow you to manage Assistant Routines. It will be awkward because you will have to use Assistant to create new routines and Gemini to activate them, but at least it’s an improvement over nothing.

While there are many additional features that Assistant can perform that Gemini cannot, one of the main drawbacks that keep Android users from fully committing to Gemini is likely the inability to control routines. If nothing else, this APK disassembly demonstrates Google’s ongoing efforts to bring Gemini’s features up to line with Assistant.

Regretfully, we are unsure of the timeline for when this functionality will be activated. However, given that it’s showing up in beta code, we anticipate it to be available in a few weeks or months.
