Samsung is the first smartphone manufacturer to be accredited for the GSMA’s joyn ’Blackbird’ services

Samsung has announced that it’s the first smartphone provider accredited for joyn ‘Blackbird’.

Blackbird is the latest version of the GSMA’s joyn service, which was launched in 2012. It’s a standard for inter-network Rich Communication Services, such as messaging, video sharing and file transfer during voice calls.

Samsung will begin offering joyn Blackbird-based services on its Galaxy S4 and S5 smartphones in Germany and Spain by the end of this year, with a rollout to France, UK and Italy also planned. The joyn website currently shows Vodafone as the only UK network supporting RCS.

J K Shin, CEO and head of IT & mobile communication at Samsung Electronics, said “RCS is a progressive and important technology that is transforming the future of mobile communication. As a market leader in technology, Samsung continues to differentiate itself by providing our customers with the most advanced mobile communications software and solutions available.”
