MWC17 A New Global Platform for Conversations, Chatbots and Commerce

Messaging platforms are now bigger than most social networks and this trend looks set to continue in 2017 with chatbots playing a prominent role.

The GSMA’s Network 2020 programme is working closely with operators, OEMs and operating system providers on the roll-out of RCS, built on one specification, the GSMA’s Universal Profile.

Operators globally are upgrading SMS to RCS, providing 6.7 billion subscribers with an
