    Most of Google's proposals are designed to make Google's ecosystem work better. And every little company with an ego envisions itself as the next Google so they ape technology without any logic. Like the use of containers, ip/ss, this. SMS works with zero mobile data. RCS does not. The reliance of any sort of connectivity that is dependent on higher levers of the network stack or provider is fundamentally wrong. And once again, we have the new-age mentality of replacing things that work for the sake of it - there's nothing wrong with SMS. There's no need to replace it, because it does what it's meant to do. Anything else is just absolute nonsense.
