Android users rejoice: Your iPhone friends’ texts making fun of your green bubble will soon be longer, with higher-quality photos and videos.⁠

Apple is finally going to let iPhones support the Rich Communication Services, or RCS, standard that Android texts use. Soon, Apple and Android users will be able to exchange longer messages with better-quality photos and videos, read receipts, typing indicators, location sharing, and improved cybersecurity. But what is surely the most important feature for some users, the text bubble color, well, that’s likely to remain separate but not equal — at least for the time being.⁠

Apple isn’t saying what the reasons are for the RCS adoption. Nor is it saying exactly how this will play out or even when, aside from “late next year.” If you’re hoping it’ll mean that texts, regardless of the device from which they were sent, will be equally blue, you’ll probably be disappointed. Apple seems to be intent on keeping iMessage platform-specific.⁠

So the green bubble stigma will likely continue. But at least the texts from your iPhone friends mocking you for your green bubble will be better.⁠
