Google is making a modest bunch of declarations identified with RCS today, yet the bit of news you're well on the way to notice is that the default SMS application Google offers is presently called "Android Messages" rather than "Emissary." Or rather, it will be the default RCS application. RCS, in the event that you don't review, is the cutting edge informing standard upheld by a gathering of bearers and Google.
