All four major U.S. carriers released the same exact press release on Thursday announcing the creation of a joint venture called the Cross Carrier Messaging Initiative (CCMI). The goal is to deliver to consumers and businesses "the next generation of messaging." This will be accomplished through the use of Rich Communication Services (RCS), a technology that uses a phone's data connection instead of cellular to send and receive messages.

With RCS, Android users will be able to send messages as long as 8,000 characters instead of the 160 limit that the current SMS system is capped at. Users will also receive a read receipt when a message they sent has been read by the recipient, and will also be able to see when the recipient is in the midst of typing a response to a message already sent. Larger-sized photo and video files can be exchanged, and group chats with up to 100 people can take place. And with RCS, chats can take place over Wi-Fi.
