Google has announced that four of Latin America's leading operators have committed to launching Rich Communication Services (RCS) services across the region via its Jibe cloud hub. America Movil, AT&T Mexico, Telefonica and Oi are activating RCS in the countries where they operate, bringing advancing messaging capabilities to more than two-thirds of mobile subscribers in Latin America. Customers will also be able also to send cross-network RCS messages to Jibe-connected users in countries outside of Latin America, said Google, adding that the features will be made available to existing users
