Google pays Apple to be the default search option because that results in direct revenue. Forcing RCS to be enabled is a bit more roundabout, long term, gain.
Google pressuring Apple to adopt RCS-which is not a Google technology but a standard developed by GSM Association-isn’t just about a ‘better experience for Android users’ but also to break the iMessage stranglehold in the N. America.
iMessage is a very powerful lock-in tool for Apple, removing that is a huge opportunity for Google to gain more switchers.
