Google goes over the top with RCS

Andrew Jones 2

It might have been helpful if you had explained what Jibe actually does - Jibe existed before Google bought it and provided a quick and easy way for mobile operators to implement RCS support into their network without having to go to the hassle of implementing it all themselves. In short it took the delivery time from 6 months - 1 year down to around 6 weeks, and means the network operator doesn't have worry about keeping the software up-to-date. That is what the company Google acquired actually does. Google adding native RCS support to Android is wonderful news, but all the sly comments about Google dropping support when they get bored - miss what Jibe actually does and that regardless of what Google does - the GSMA will trudge along regardless.
