As compatible handsets grow, so will the number of consumers we can reach and this could completely transform the way we communicate with our listeners.”
Stephen George, Commercial Director at Fonix added: “We’re thrilled to be working with Global – it’s been great to showcase the exciting work that we’ve been doing behind the scenes to drive RCS forwards.
“If everyone comes together and gets moving: mobile operators and RCS Messaging hubs (e.g., Google, Samsung, etc.), the industry, brands, and enterprises have a real promising opportunity ahead.”
