Textmunication Enters the RCS Market

May 13, 2019

PLEASANT HILL, CA, May 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Textmunication Holdings, Inc. (TXHD) (“Company”), a cloud-based communication technology holding company, announced today the Company’s entrance into the rapidly growing Rich Communication Services (RCS) market. RCS upgrades SMS with branding, rich media, interactivity and analytics. With RCS, businesses can bring branded, interactive mobile experiences right to the default messaging app.

Recent GSMA (Global System for Mobile Communications) estimates indicate the RCS market will be worth $74 billion by 2021. RCS continues to gain momentum with over 50 global operator launches and more than 136 million monthly active users around the world. GSMA also estimates 86% of all smartphones will be RCS-enabled by 2020.

Rich Communication Services (RCS) is a communication protocol aimed at replacing SMS messages with a text-message system that is richer, provides interactivity and can transmit in-call multimedia. RCS has received strong backing from Google - and more recently from Samsung and Verizon who have also started implementing the RCS protocol. If a phone isn’t enabled for RCS messaging, the message simply reverts to SMS.

Textmunication has clients that will start using the RCS protocol immediately. Change is coming rapidly in mobile communications and Textmunication has met this challenge. With the completion of its new SAM messaging platform, the Company is working on several new features such as its “electronic text scratcher” which allows the user to scratch the text message for contests and interactive messaging.

“We feel RCS is the future of mobile messaging,” stated Chief Executive Officer, Wais Asefi. “We were able to offer RCS services due to the company’s foresight to join OpenMarket’s Early access program which allowed Textmunication to be the early RCS adopter in the Health and Fitness market”.
