Why RCS Business Messaging (RBM)?

The Rich Communication Services (RCS) is an upgrade to the SMS that supports the sharing of rich data such as pictures, audio, videos, GIFs, suggested actions, OTPs, and more, to the users. RBM further adds branding, trust marks, rich cards, carousels, suggested replies, and action buttons, creating tremendous potential to scale up with the changing customer preferences for interacting with brands.

Session Messages

Sessions include all the A2P messages (not a part of any other session) that are sent within 24hrs before the first P2A message and all the messages within 24hrs after the first P2A message.

To use RCS on a mobile phone, the SMS messaging client on the device needs to support RCS. With Google’s worldwide launch of RCS Chat features, RCS can be enabled on all Android devices with Google’s Messages app. Also, following the decision of most leading ODMs to pre-load their Android devices with the Messages app as the default SMS client, several Android phones are now enabled with RCS. The partnership between Google and Samsung allows RCS features to work seamlessly between the Samsung Messages and Google’s Messages apps. Users can download the Google Messages app on their own to use RCS.

Apple does not currently support RCS messaging on iPhones. It is expected that RCS will be supported on iPhone in the future as part of compliance to 5G standards.

Following is the procedure to check whether an Android device running on the Google’s messaging app supports RCS.

  • Open the Google Messaging app of your phone
  • Select the 3 dots in the upper right corner
  • Click on Settings. If you see a menu item called Chat Features then your device has RCS

The various options under Chat Features, can be enabled or disabled as per the user preferences. Other messaging clients may have a similar procedure to check for RCS support.

OTT apps such as Facebook messenger, WhatsApp, Viber are IP-based apps that need to be downloaded. RBM on the other hand, reaches the handset’s native messaging app just like the SMS, thereby eliminating the need to install additional apps. Hence leveraging the RBM allows brands to touch base with more potential customers than the OTT apps. The additional benefits are:

  • Works with the built-in messaging app (Need not download an app)
  • Provides increased level of trust and security
  • Improve results, security, and branding of OTPs at same or lower costs
  • Next generation of SMS, sometimes called SMS 2.0
  • Part of 5G standard; set to eventually replace SMS
  • You can leverage your chatbot investment with OTT apps
  • Adopted by GSMA, the global association of the mobile carriers from across the world

Yes. Dotgo can integrate the RCS with your current live agent system to let you use RCS with other business messaging solutions that you may already be using.

Definitely. You can list your bot on the Dotgo Bot Store, which is the world’s first directory of RCS and WhatsApp bots that helps users discover and connect with your bot. Users can also rate and review the bot, which can significantly boost the usage.

We help you integrate the RCS channel into your customer communications, whether for sales, support, services, or other business processes
