RCS Business Messaging
SMS Messaging on mobile devices is limited due to 160 characters and very few images, so Google also introduced another feature called RSC (Rich Communications Services) Business Messaging. RCS is a upgraded version of SMS that delivers fast and interactive experiences for rich media, suggested replies and actions through default messaging app.
It is true that slow mobile sites lose potential customers due to loading time. A study shows that the delay of one-second in loading can impact the conversion rate by up to 20%. But it is possible that there are many other reasons for slow mobile site but finally you can find all the technical details with a single click and generate report to share with colleagues.
