Google Fi Expands LTE Coverage, Adds RCS Messaging

Google announced Rich Communication Services (RCS), a new messaging protocol designed to give users an improved, more feature-rich communication experience, is coming to Google Fi (formerly Project Fi). The new standard will eventually replace SMS messages. google fi coverage

When RCS becomes more widely available, users will get an experience akin to Apple’s iMessage, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and other high-profile services.

You’ll be able to see typing indicators and read receipts, share high-resolution videos, and message over Wi-Fi or data with others that have RCS enabled,” Google said.

In order to take advantage of the new protocol, you’ll need to download Google’s Messages application, as will the person you’re communicating with. According to Google, RCS for Google Fi only works with a handful of Android phones, including Pixel phones, LG V35, LG G7, and a few others.

When you travel with Google Fi, you already have automatic data coverage for the same price you pay at home in 200+ countries and territories. Over the next few weeks, Google’ll upgrade 33 of these countries to faster 4G LTE coverage on phones designed for Fi.

So whether you’re looking for directions to your grandma’s place in Hong Kong or sharing scenic photos of your adventures in Iceland with friends back home, you’ll enjoy even faster data speeds while you travel.
