Google's new universal messaging effort for Android to be called Chat

Google is stopping work on its Allo communication app for Android, and moving most of the team to a new venture called Chat, it seems. Now is the time for the obligatory eye roll when talking about the search giants efforts to unify messaging on Android phones to be more like Apple's iMessage closed garden

First there was Google Talk, then there were Hangouts, then Allo and Duo split the video and text chat duties for some reason, and now Allo is being given the boot for the sake of Chat. Yep, it's a great name, we have to admit, and Google better not screw this effort up.

The kicker with the new Chat project is that it is said to use RCS text messaging, or a richer media standard that still works within the framework of the carriers' tried and true texting equipment. This way, even when somebody on the receiving end doesn't have Chat, they will simply get the messages like regular texts, and be able to answer. The issue, of course, are the carriers, which have to onboard Chat for their networks, but Google is apparently in talks with them to let it be.

There is such a great variety of Android phones out there, that using RCS was perhaps the only feasible approach for a unified messaging experience on Google's mobile OS platform. The stock Android Messages app that most phones already have is a great starting point. RCS is universally supported, and would allow for the usual chat shenanigans we are accustomed to, like rich media sharing, but at the same time it has one huge drawback - it's not encrypted. In this day and age, this could prove to be yet another insurmountable hurdle for Google towards the goal to create a truly useful go-to messaging app for Android.

Did ya'll read the article? Google ain't making a new app. They're renaming Universal RCS to Chat and pausing development on Allo. OP didn't even read what he posted.

Side note: I told n*ggas that Google wasn't going to make their own app that was iMessage-esque. Carriers not gon allow that at this point. They already hate iMessage.

You can use the app now, download BeeChat.

I’ve been up on this for a couple months, most of extra features are in Chinese though...for right now.

Team Android...its about freedom of choice. Why don't they make regular text and stock apps good enough so no developer has to make an alternative?

Google has so many carriers and manufacturers on board with this it's crazy. Even little cheap a.ss phones will be RCS enabled within the next 12 months and folks won't even know it. Samsung is gonna do some awesome stuff with the feature and when it becomes widespread I'm going back to Android. SMS has been dead and I refuse to use it primarily when this becomes standard for Android I'm going back

The carriers don't control iMessage and therefore can't profit off of it. If an iMessage clone could be created in 2018, Samsung would have already done it.

Doesn’t make sense. Carries don’t profit off regular text

Carriers make stupid ridiculous profits from SMS. It's one of the main reasons they ditched Blackberry (BBM) for Android, so they can bring back SMS profits. And for that reason, Google will never make a real iMessage competitor.

Apple has major leverage from the beginning with the AT&T deal, so they can basically do what they want and carriers can't say sh*t.

I don't know the behind the scenes workings of it, but can you explain to me why carriers don't like it?

Uh, yes they do.

Carriers can charge you extra for "unlimited" texting or cap your texts if they want. Most carriers outside of America still cap texts. This is common knowledge. On both points.
