Huawei Phones Will Now Offer Android Messages App By Default

Huawei Phones Will Now Offer Android Messages App By Default

With Huawei being the 3rd largest smartphone maker in the world, this partnership is wonderful news for both the carrier partners and users alike as the accelerated RCS services will draw more and more subscribers on board, expanding the RCS messaging user and carrier partner base smoothly. Messages from businesses will also be upgraded on Huawei's devices through RCS business messaging. This means that Huawei's upcoming smartphones will offer the Android Messages app as the default messaging app in all markets.

So why would you want to use RCS over SMS? You can't share files, get read receipts, group chats or share emoji.

With Google's help, the tech giant is positive that Huawei will "bring a better native messaging experience to hundreds of millions of people worldwide, through RCS and Android Messages" as per Google's SVP for Platforms & Ecosystems Hiroshi Lockheimer. Impressive attributes such as texting over Wi-Fi, group chats, dense media sharing, and typing indicators will be enabled as default features of the device.

Huawei will soon commence the integration of Android Messages across their portfolio. A year later, Google advanced its cause further when it rebranded its SMS Messenger app as Android Messages, and reached an agreement to make it the default messaging app on devices from LG, Motorola, Sony, HTC, ZTE, Micromax, HMD Global (Nokia), Archos, among others.

It's all contingent on your network supporting it though, as without this support, the messaging app reverts to being a traditional SMS/MMS app. "Huawei is a global leader in carrier network technology and collaborating on the Jibe RCS cloud and hub will accelerate the roll-out of RCS on carrier networks".
