Google is asking Apple to adopt which feature of Android? 

Google is trying to replace SMS with RCS

But Apple is refusing to adopt this new messaging service & that's why Google has started a new campaign.

Google has created a website called Get the Message urging Apple to support the RCS standard for cross platform messaging in iPhones.

Website claims to improve the messaging process between iPhones & Android devices while the Get Message hashtag is also being used for this purpose.

Now if a message is sent to an Android user it appears in a green bubble in the iPhone Messages app while between the 2 iPhones, the app uses Apple iMessage service for messages with all advanced features. are

However messages coming from Android are displayed in the old SMS standard on the iPhone & it is not possible to use the new features.

Considering this issue Google has-been pushing Apple for months to support RCS which contains most of the features of iMessage.

Google says it expects every mobile operating system to be upgraded with RCS.

Keep in mind that Google has-been trying to introduce RCS for many years but this process has-been slow.
