Coming Soon to iPhone: No More Green Chat Bubbles

The iOS 18 developer beta now supports RCS (Rich Communication Services), enabling iPhone users to send rich messages to Android users. This includes uncompressed audio and video, improved group chats, and read receipts across platforms. Major U.S. carriers like AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon are rolling out RCS support.

The feature can be toggled in the settings under Apps > Messages if supported by the carrier. The impact on user preferences for messaging apps like WhatsApp versus Apple Messages remains to be seen. This change may encourage some users to revert to Apple Messages for inter-platform communication.
