Leveraging Jibe's end-to-end cloud and white label messaging client, Japan's Softbank-owned Sprint launched its Messaging Plus RCS service powered by Jibe in the US in late 2013, and is now preloading the client on most new Android-powered smartphones. Messaging Plus lets Android and iPhone consumers use a single application to connect with family and friends on any wireless carrier in North America via text, instant messaging, group messaging, and video chat, as well as sharing of photos and videos.

Deutsche Telekom has announced they will deploy Jibe's RCS services in European markets and interconnect via Jibe's Cloud and RCS Hub. Deutsche Telekom's regional operating companies in Romania and Slovakia have already launched joyn services developed by Jibe Mobile and delivered over Jibe's IP Communication Cloud in Q2 2014.
