Telenor to roll out Google's new messaging service in Asia, Europe
The messaging service includes features such as group chats, photo sharing and read receipts among other things, Google said in its official blog.
Google said these features would come as standard on its Android operating system.
The internet giant said it plans to roll out RCS in more countries in the coming months.
Telenor said it has had a long-term strategic partnership with Google and has supported RCS being rolled out as widely as possible.
"Partnering with Google for RCS at a group level is another step in this direction as it enables us to launch RCS in our respective markets," a spokeswoman said.
