  • Google has launched a website to address the so-called “green bubble” hate Android users face from iPhone users.
  • The site explains RCS, Apple’s proprietary messaging platform, and more.
  • Google hopes this information will inform users about why iMessage causes so many problems.

Google has been a big proponent of rich content services (RCS) for messaging apps. In fact, when US-based wireless carriers dragged their collective feet over support rollouts, Google just superseded them all and rolled it out itself.

However, no matter what Google does when it comes to messaging, it can’t supersede Apple. The iMessage platform does not use RCS and Apple’s proprietary systems create the so-called “green bubble” hatred iPhone users throw at Android users.
