Google’s RCS (Rich Communications Service) is rolling out globally, starting with Android users in the U.S. and Canada. The service brings a host of new features to your phone calls, including video calls and group calls. The service is now on the Google app for Android and Android Messages, so it’s easier to initiate a voice or video call, share your location and send messages across platforms to friends and family who may be on other messaging platforms.
