According to TheVerge, T-Mobile and Google announced that they had struck a deal that will allow the carrier to showcase Google services on Android phones sold on the carrier's network.

The list includes:

  • Providing all T-Mobile Android devices with official support for Android Messages.
  • The decision to switch from T-Mobile to Google's YouTube TV has finally been made.
  • Taking the One backup solution and making it the new backup tool.
  • Google has accelerated its efforts to expand sales of hardware, such as the Pixel.

The companies claim T-Mobile has the highest number of Android smartphone users in the United States. With this partnership, those consumers will have access to native Google services via their smartphones instead of the carrier or manufacturer's services.

This is a great win for Google because now it has a real US carrier partner other than Verizon, who failed to enhance the Pixel line of handsets sales. However, the Pixel has done well since the business started selling less expensive versions like the 3A and 4A.

T-Mobile will use Android Messages as the default on all Samsung phones from the future, just as it will on all Android phones in the future. Google indicates the switchover will happen before the end of the year.

The companies are also announcing that they plan to 'build a messaging business together.' Businesses can use RCS much like iMessage for some and WhatsApp for others.

It's one of the factors that initially seemed as if it might be one of the primary drivers for adoption since there can be a substantial amount of revenue to be made on the backend, but it has yet to fulfill its potential.
