Verizon & Google Coming Together To Offer Advanced Messaging Services

By John F. Heerdink, Jr.

Reportedly, Verizon Communications, Inc. (VZ) and Google are coming together to expand advanced messaging services to Android users in the U.S. starting next year using the Messages by Google app. The service will be based on the Rich Communications Service (RCS) standard, which provides a more interactive and modern messaging experience right from Messages by Google. With this collaboration, Messages will work with Verizon’s network and RCS messaging service to provide a seamless experience for Android users.


“Our customers depend on us to provide a reliable, advanced and simple messaging platform to stay in touch with the people that matter the most in their lives. By working with Google, Verizon will offer our Android users a robust messaging experience that allows them to engage with loved ones, brands and businesses in new and innovative ways.” stated Ronan Dunne, executive vice president and CEO of Verizon Consumer Group.

“Verizon and Google have been working together on Android since the early days of smartphones, and we’re excited to be working with Verizon today to bring a modern-messaging experience to our users,” stated Hiroshi Lockheimer, Google’s senior vice president of Platforms & Ecosystems.


Starting next year, Messages by Google will be made available on all Verizon Android devices, offering consumers rich messaging features, such as sending and receiving higher-quality photos and videos, chatting over Wi-Fi or data, enjoying dynamic and engaging group chats, and ensuring security with end-to-end encryption. RCS will allow Verizon Android users the option to easily connect with businesses to purchase products, make reservations, ask questions, and more.
 
Verizon’s Message+ app customers will also get full access to RCS capabilities by the end of the year, like embedded high-resolution pictures and videos, real-, animated GIFs, time conversation notifications, and more.
