Google keeps trying to hammer on Apple for not adopting RCS

Posted:

In a birthday post on Friday, Google continues to court Apple, trying to get it to adopt RCS. It's still not ready, not a standard, and not something Google is all-in on itself.

Google continues to beg Apple to fix its messaging problem
Google continues to beg Apple to fix its messaging problem


Apple's products rely on iMessage when commuting with other Apple products, then fall back on SMS for everyone else. Google has been aggressively pushing a newer standard called RCS, but it isn't quite ready for primetime.

The latest push from Google arrives in the form of a condescending blog post. It is nearly the 30th anniversary of the first-ever SMS text, and Google wants Apple to know there's something newer... again.

"Most of the mobile world is using RCS, but there is one company that's dragging its heels," the blog post reads, alluding to Apple. "But after 30 years of SMS texting, it's truly time."

Google's three reasons why

The post provides three reasons Apple needs to get on board with RCS. However, the reasoning isn't exactly sound.

First, Google cites security thanks to end-to-end encryption. However, it forgets to mention that users have to send messages via the Google Messages app for encryption. That, and encryption for group chats is only available to users of the Google Messages beta.

Second, Google says RCS enables higher-resolution images, video, and more things like emoji reactions. However, other messaging services like Signal, WeChat, Facebook Messenger, and even iMessage already have these improvements. It is Google's problem that Android users don't have the same benefit by default.

Finally, Google calls RCS an industry standard. Which it isn't, not even close. Google hasn't even adopted RCS across all of its disparate messaging platforms.

The post also disparages Apple for using SMS as a fallback, despite RCS doing the same. RCS only works over an internet connection, so it will fall back to SMS just like iMessage does when internet strength isn't good enough.

RCS isn't the answer

The foundation of this post is the age of SMS -- 30 years. While this is an aging standard that needs to be replaced, it is also a universal one that the entire globe benefits from. No matter how embedded RCS, iMessage, or other platforms become, SMS will take a decade or more to phase out completely.

There is also a fundamental issue with Apple adopting RCS since it is a direct competing platform with iMessage. Google acts as if RCS is a replacement for SMS, but it isn't -- it is just another layer on top of it.

Apple debuted iMessage as a method to unify messaging across its platforms and take the guesswork away from its users. Google failed to do the same, and is making it Apple's problem.

Hopefully, Google can #GetTheMessage that it isn't Apple's job to fix messaging on Android products.

    whaaaa whaaa whaaa

    Hey Google you don't see us cry every time you kill off a product.

    BTW, sell NEST back to Tony so we can have HomeKit support.

    Google to Apple: Your messaging app sucks. You'd better switch to RCS or else!

    Apple to Google: Ooooh, we scared now!

    RCS is now the standard for all Android phones, so it's wrong to say that Android users can't share high-res images by default.

    Sure, RCS isn't perfect and is still mid-adoption, but you say it's not the solution to fixing cross-platform messaging without offering any other options. What would you rather see happen to improve how iOS and Android communicate? It's easy to criticize, but you don't seem to have a better solution to offer.

    Google's customers are complaining and they need to deflect the blame.

    Nothing is perfect, so saying RCS isn't perfect doesn't add anything to the discussion.

    Your argument here doesn't make any sense and here's why: it's not Apple or Appleinsider that's complaining about cross-platform messaging. So when Google suggests a solution, Apple is free to say "no thanks.' They aren't required to offer their own solution; they aren't the ones complaining.

    One of the subheadings in the article is "RCS isn't the answer". I'm pointing out that if you're going to say that RCS isn't the answer, it's useful to say what is.

    I think it's fair to say that most iOS and Android users would appreciate if messaging between the two OSs improved. If that wasn't the case, you wouldn't hear so many complaints about green bubbles. Google has a possible solution, and I haven't heard any better alternatives that don't require Apple users to abandon iMessage or for Apple to open up the iMessage APIs.

    I don't want to speak for the author, but from the above, it appears that the author did not mean to say Android users can't share high-res images by default at all, but rather it is the combination of multiple features that represents the "same benefit" that other platforms have that Android users don't have.

    Also, it's not the author's responsibility to offer a better solution. Reporting the facts are, which I believe has been done in this article.

    It would be useful, but it's not a requirement. Kinda like when Trump suggest injecting bleach into your veins to cure Covid it's OK to say that's not a safe solution without first having a cure in mind, or if a family with terminal cancer starts giving all their money away to televangelists who promise they can cure them through prayer if they give them enough seed money, it's perfect fine to point out that they're charlatans preying on their fear of dying without first having a cure for their cancer.

    As for saying it's "fair" that we all want messaging improved, sure, but does RCS really provide an improvement? There are a plethora of Android-focused websites talking about its reliability and security, with many others saying that it's dead and that Google should just drop it.

    Trump never said this.  He used it as a metaphor for something that could be used to clean out the body of the virus.  

    It doesn’t matter what you think of Trump: misrepresenting what was said does no one any favors.

    Google is as evil as Facebook/Meta, if not more so. I trust nothing from the company in terms of not monetizing the data of its users in surreptitious ways. It even destroyed its own best-in-class search engine so it could serve up sponsored results posing as most relevant to your search.

    When I bought my first iPhone 3 (?) Carriers charged for texting plans and I refused to pay for one. My friend said, I had to have texting...I said no I don't, I'll iMessage (free) my friends that own iPhones anyone else that feels that they need to text me can buy an iPhone or email me.

    It's likely due to iMessages that carriers caved and started rolling it into the plans.

    Know what? I think everyone that I iMessage/Text has an iPhone. So not really a problem for me and I could care less.

    Use email if you can’t download an app. Or use WhatsApp,Viber,Line or in the worst case scenario WeChat.

    His argument is that Apple shouldn't adopt RCS because Google has made their own extensions to the Universal Profile, other apps have similar features (???),  and because it's not on every Android phone yet or integrated into every Google service.

    None of those are actually reasons why Apple shouldn't adopt RCS, especially since Google has offered to help Apple get feature parity between Google's extensions and a possible Apple implementation.

    I'd say that a current lack of end-to-end (E2E) encryption is one reason why Apple should include RCS into their Messages app. You might want to respond saying that it already exists—which is does if you look at specific RCS profiles and without looking at group chat features or whether someone has that disabled. I think that E2E encryption is a necessary attribute for modern messaging, not simply an option feature.

    Would there be benefits to  Apple's customer base if RCS was adopted instead of just SMS? Of course, as most of us do interact with people with green bubbles. but there are definitely downfalls, as well as many difficult pitfalls for Apple for trying to shoehorn many competing and half-baked standards into a single something that just works.

    Have you asked yourself why Google wants Apple to support this? At the very least they want Apple to support it so that it becomes popular. Do you think it's fair for Google to pressure another company into paying a lot of money writing and testing code so that another can benefit off their branding? Why not first make RCS good, safe, and popular amongst Android users. If that happens, then I think Apple will have no choice but to adopt it, but not the other way around. If you build it, they will come.

    There's the Universal Profile and Google's extensions that's build on top of that. There aren't conflicting profiles, at least not ones that matter.

    It's hard to say that Apple's Messages app just works when people complain about the SMS/MMS fallback so much.

    Google wants Apple to implement RCS because the vast majority of teens want an iPhone, solely because teens with an Android get bullied for having a green bubble, and they don't want a whole generation growing up only being familiar with a competitor.

    That same reason is why Apple has avoided implementing RCS, even though it's required by the 5G standard.

    This campaign isn't a serious attempt to get Apple to adopt RCS. Those conversations happen in private. This campaign is about shifting the public's attitude. It's to get people to realize that Apple benefits from their bad user experience.

    I don't like Google's approach, but they're right in saying that Apple is doing everything they can to hold back cross platform messaging.

    RCS is the current best solution to improve cross platform messaging, and it's just as important to understand why Apple won't collaborate with Google on RCS, when they are willing to collaborate with several companies on technologies like WebGPU.

    There's the Universal Profile and Google's extensions that's build on top of that. There aren't conflicting profiles, at least not ones that matter. 
    So you want Apple to support one profile because Google says so while also saying "fuck you" to supporting RCS profiles for the plethora of carriers and phones that don't support it.  You honestly don't see a problem with that?

    Again, get it working the same on all Android devices and Apple very likely have to support it just like they support SMS.
