Google the tech giant has agreed to the fact that it will be allocating the resources and the workforce that was earlier reserved for the Allo. Google will be working towards the development a latest message service which Google will name "Chat" most likely. The Chat is said to give a direct competition to the Apples' famous application which is the iMessages and most likely is developed on the technology that could soon replace SMS.

SMS+ also known as RCS or Rich Communication Services is a protocol which allows the users to send richer text and multimedia over a calling network. The Rich Communication Services is said to give brands more opportunities in order to interact with the customers, but also it could pull the users or the customers back to carrier-based messaging without being completely depending on the third-party-OTT apps especially during the controversies over the ownership of data. It seems like there will be some kind of criticism among the users regarding the upcoming app or service as it is being speculated that the app or service might not offer end-to-end encryption.

Another feature that is said to be likely a part of Google's Chat app was recently introduced in the Alphabet Scoop podcast. The podcast had pointed out that Google could also include a special feature in chat that is said to be focused on physical and face-to-face interactions instead of communicating virtually. The "Chat" is supposed to inform the users when a contact is close by and suggest that they could meet them in person.

Android Messages, this task is said to be essentially carried out by the Google Assistant within the Chat app. This implies that the virtual assistant will run in the background and constantly scan a user's location. This will be in regards to match it with a contact, further, the data would be sent to a server constantly where the location of the user will be compared to the location of the user's contact

 

The feature might sound interesting for the users who have an outgoing and extrovert nature; however, it could disappoint those users who do not wish their location to be monitored on a regular basis. It is being said that it is highly likely that Google will allow the users to opt-out of this feature, which is kind of relief for the users who don't want to share their location.

As per some reports from the web, there are some real uses for this feature, for example when a user wants to set up a quick meeting with a friend who is nearby and doesn't know any good spots to hang out. It is said to be also useful for parents who want to keep an eye on their child's movements. Further, it could be also used for the professional connections, or for the businesses on the wheel like a food truck or pop-up stores.
