Rich Communication Services: Nobody uses it, nobody wants it, but analysts reckon it's on the verge of a breakthrough

It's a start. It's only limited now, because it's a dogfood version. The next update to the stable app, will have encryption. As far as carriers go, T-Mobile is the bravest of the bunch, and others may follow. Tried signal, didn't like it at all(caching monster). The performance wasn't good, compared to messages, and crashed alot.

Re: SMS=( Free ), RCS=( Pay )

No, no charge. End to end encryption is in a dogfood version now, and will be the next update. T-Mobile partnered with them ( in the last week) and RCS protocol runs on their servers now. No special app needed. Samsung messages , on tmobile, runs right now.
