It feels so good to hear that the users can run different messaging apps simultaneously at the same place, known as Beeper. This app supports most popular messaging apps such as WhatsApp, Signal, Facebook, iMessage, Matrix, Telegram, Facebook, Hangout, and SMS.
At the moment, Beeper is announcing merging with Google Messages RCS, whereas SMS has already been running on Beeper. With the latest update, Beeper is offering the facility to Android users to bring into service the newest messaging standard. By using the same identical QR code as Google Messages’ web client, the users are eligible to link RCS to Beeper.
The new update holds up support for both RCS and SMS, so long as Google Messages is set as the default SMS app on Android.
However, the support for Google Messages is in the beta stage yet, since it is in its developing location, so there are some known issues. The bugs are spotted in this update include profile photos not appearing, history synchronization being incomplete, insufficiency of read receipts in group chats, and non-functioning typing indicators.
Within the Beeper app, the merging between Google Messages RCS and Apple iMessage is pretty convenient. This facility allows users to use both chatting platforms in one application. But the noticeable point is that it also has a few limitations. For instance, it uses existing desktop linking of Google Messages, which is attached to the user’s Android device. So in case their smartphone shuts down or is disconnected from the internet, it breaks the link.
Moreover, Beeper’s fusion with Google Messages is less questionable regarding security and privacy concerns, as it leverages official options, even any need for passwords or additional accounts.
In plain words, Beeper is providing support for Google Messages RCS and Apple iMessage for both Android and iPhone as well, which is an avant-grade addition to the conversation platform, also giving eligibility to the users to manage their multiple messaging services as per their convenience within a single app.
