Google’s Rich Communications Service ( RCS) arrives on Monday . This emerges from a Thursday tweet from Sanaz Ahari, the head of product management for Google's communications services. The SMS update will finally offer Android users functions similar to iMessage.

"Hello everyone! RCS will be available to all users in the United States from Monday", the tweet previously discovered by Pocket Lint. read. "Make sure you update both news and carrier services."

Google announced last month that the service will be available shortly. These include chatting via WLAN, reading receipts, entering advertisements sending and receiving high-resolution images and videos, naming group chats and adding or removing people from group chats.

"These are table-top features," Ahari said in a November interview with CNET. "It is a very important step in the right direction."

In October, all four four major US airlines announced the creation of the Cross Carrier Messaging Initiative which RCS will use to make text messages as intelligent as iMessage. Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint hoped to accelerate the adoption of the technology.
