This is both good and worrying news. The EU is pushing Apple to prematurely adopt RCS, which (if I understand correctly) does not support end-2-end encryption.

It would be a step back if people switch from WhatsApp to this, which some anti-privacy elements in the EU would be happy about. Worst case the EU lobbies against strong encryption in the RCS standard.

At the same time Apple says they'll work on improving the standard, so IF they succeed then that would be good. No more need to use a Zuck product to talk to boomers and non-technical people.
