After giving users the possibility to publish photos on Instagram directly from the gallery application, Samsung may be planning a very interesting new integration in its interface.
According to information advanced by the website The Korea Herald, the Samsung Galaxy S20 may arrive with native Google Duo integration in its messaging application. If this implementation is confirmed, it is expected that the remaining smartphones of the brand will also receive the integration of Google Duo.
Samsung’s messaging app wants to replace WhatsApp
Apparently, samsung is in talks with the operator SK Telecom and Google, in order to create a video conferencing service on its smartphones. In order to create this service, they are studying the possibility of integrating Google Duo in the native messaging application in OneUI and using RCS (Rich Communication Services).
I remember that RCS allows the sharing of photos, videos and music using the traditional messaging application, eliminating the need to install external applications such as WhatsApp or Telegram. However, we do not yet know how Samsung intends to achieve this integration.
The integration of Google Duo clearly has the main objective of allowing users to make video calls without consuming mobile data from their tariffs. However, RCS only allows the transmission of files with a maximum size of 5MB, which seems to be impossible to fulfill when making a video call.
For now, no further details on this alleged implementation have yet been revealed. As the Samsung Galaxy S20 presentation date approaches, more information is likely to be revealed over the next few days.
