    We all know and love iMessage, but how does it stack up against RCS messaging that's being pioneered by Google Messages? Here's a quick breakdown of the two messaging platforms and how they compare.

    Shouldn’t be that much of a difference in day to day usage, but iMessage does win. Not to say that Google Messages and its RCS aren’t good. Both are pretty great, not much of a discussion to be had lol.

    That said, the conclusion of the article is spot on:

    “ Both iMessage and RCS are top-notch messaging services for iOS and Android, respectively, with that being the ultimate conclusion. Neither one works across both operating systems, and while Apple could start supporting RCS down the road, that doesn't seem likely to happen in the immediate future.

    So, if you like iMessage, keep on using iMessage. If you have an Android phone and want to give RCS features in Google Messages a shot, go for it. Neither one will steer your wrong, and with both being free to use, you have nothing to lose.”

    Don’t think the android copy has end to end encryption.

    Neither is best. Most people will use what most of their contacts use. Simple as that.

    If on Android, people will like RCS.

    If on Iphones, people will like iMessage.
