Obtaining a license

Use of the universal service mark, joyn™, indicates compliance with the product profile based on the RCS specification and meeting of the comprehensive interworking and quality test criteria. The service mark offers a high level of assurance of service delivery for consumers, the promise that ‘It’s just there, it just works’.

License for Operators, Devices and Client Providers

If your organisation would like to use the joyn™ service mark, please download the joyn™ logo license agreement document and accompanying annexes A, B and C from the link below.
