SMS: Text message with max.160 characters. Works on all mobile phones with a SIM.
RCS/Message+: Share photos, videos and documents or create group chats. Only works with other Swisscom customers who use a Samsung device.
RCS will be deactivated as of 1.1.2024. You will no longer be able to send photos, videos or documents using the Samsung Message+ messaging app after this date. If you still try to use the service, the media will be converted to a text and link and sent via the Samsung Cloud.
Existing group chats will be deactivated automatically, and it will not be possible to access photos and videos that have already been received and sent. We therefore recommend that you save them locally on your smartphone before the end of the year.
Smartphones offer various options for sending photos and videos.
You can choose from a range of messaging services from different providers in the Google Play Store. As well as considering the number of users, you should also think about the app’s data protection and security. You can find information on this from consumer protection(opens in new tab) or SRF(opens in new tab).
