T-Mobile bringing ‘Advanced Messaging’ on its VoLTE network
Today, T-Mobile’s Chief Technology Officer Neville Ray announced that the carrier is bringing new messaging capabilities on its Rich Communications Services (RCS) standard. The new service is called T-Mobile Advanced Messaging and will deliver messaging capabilities previously available only on third-party apps.
T-Mobile will be the first US carrier to offer this new technology, and will bring new messaging enhancements such as;
- Rich 1 on 1 and group messaging, including near real-time chat
- See when others are typing, when your message is delivered and even read
- Share high-res photos and videos up to 10 MB just as you would a regular text message
- T-Mobile Advanced Messaging is built to work across all devices, makers and operating systems and wireless operators (as soon as they upgrade their networks)
User will have access to all these new capabilities without having to download a new app, and will come to smartphones through updates. The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime (available for $189.99) is the first device that will take advantage of this new service. T-Mobile Advanced Messaging will shortly come to Galaxy S5 and S6 through a software update, and a dozen other devices are expected to get the update this year.
T-Mobile’s VoLTE has brought HD Voice calling capability nationwide and is now bringing the messaging standard to set the carrier aside from its competitors.
