The Future of Messaging
The messaging app is becoming the “everything” app on the phone and every tech giant is racing to own the most popular one. We offer device manufacturers and mobile operators the ability to white-label and preinstall Messages Improved as default on all Android phones. By enabling operators to upgrade their SMS service to a richer messaging experience, Messages Improved is putting the operators on an even playing field with other over-the-top (OTT) messaging apps today.
what is rcs?
The RCS initiative from the GSMA is intended to provide a specification for future IP-based messaging, voice and multi-media services, through which mobile operators will be able to remain relevant as a service provider in the face of the threat from OTT players.
Rich Communication Services (RCS) is a type of messaging protocol that will upgrade and replace SMS. RCS will allow for improved media handling via Android messaging such as high-resolution photos, GIFs and videos. Similar to iMessage, users are able to see when a contact is typing a message and when they have received a message when both use RCS.
RCS will replace SMS and finally allow Android phones to compete with iMessage and over-the-top messaging apps like WhatsApp, Telegram and WeChat. Think of it as iMessage for Android.

What we offer?
Messages Improved is a native (SMS/MMS/RCS) app replacement on Android. It’s the only market-tested P2P alternative to Google/Samsung Messages that operators can brand as their own.
You can think of us as iMessage for Androids, with encrypted RCS/data messaging (blue bubble) when messaging other users and native SMS/MMS (green bubble) when messaging non-users or no internet connection. In addition, we can complement all A2P deployments, including Google and vendors, but with no upfront cost, investment or technical integration needed.
By branding Messages Improved, operators can monetize P2P messaging through advertising, without impacting any existing revenues.
End-to-End Encrypted RCS
Messages Improved’s RCS is the first end-to-end encrypted RCS on the market. This means we can offer you the improved messaging functionality of RCS, along with a more secure messaging protocol. Messages will only be encrypted when sent between you and another Messages Improved user and you are both using RCS.
