    the one that made me laugh recently was when they tried to paint alternatives to rcs as antiquated.

    rcs doesn’t even support end-to-end encryption, something even imessage does.

    an open, industry standard that everyone supports would be awesome, but rcs simply isn’t it. rcs was designed to make telecom companies happy, not to be an actually good messaging protocol.
