Goodbye To SMS/MMS As 5G Messaging Is Set To Hit The World Soon
The 5G is set to hit the world in a different dimension as it might be coming as an upgrade to the native basic Short Message Service (SMS).
This great development was made known in a recent report by popular Chinese website, GizChina.com. The new development will be breaking the limits of each message in traditional SMS, and will also be supporting  multiple media formats, including text, pictures, audio, video, emoticons, and contacts.

The three major carriers in China, China Mobile, China Telecom, and China Unicom, jointly released the '5G Messages' feature in an  online press conference that took place last week Wednesday.

Other features that will be included in the 5G messaging include providing users with message status reports, history management plus support for both online and offline messages.

Representatives from 11 companies including Samsung, Huawei, and Xiaomi were part of the online event. Other companies include Vivo, ZTE, OPPO, Lenovo, and Meizu. These companies were all positive with the follow-up of this feature. Of course, we will expect a little tweak by the OEMs.

Some OEMs were quite direct with their plans for “5G Messages”. According to Huawei, it will commence testing of this feature from April 10. It also hopes to commercially release “5G Messages” in June 2020.

The new 5G messaging feature will also be bringing a brand-new human-computer interaction mode that will allow users complete a one-stop service experience such as service search, discovery, interaction, and payments.
Recall that we earlier pointed out some other ways the 5G network is changing the landscape of businesses globally.
