Abstract: Since its origin, the human being had the need to communicate with those around him. Nowadays, society fully relies on telecommunications in order to communicate with the ones they care, whether they are in the same city or in another continent. With the massification of smartphones and tablets, and the proliferation of an easy mobile access to the Internet, a new menace arose to the Mobile Network Operators (MNOs): the Over-the-Top applications. Taking advantage of the high and worldwide usage of these mobile devices that are always connected to the global network, they provide new and different features that improve the way people communicate. Together with having no associated cost in general, these applications led users to rely less on the MNOs for the communication processes, which consequently affected their revenues. In order to provide the MNOs with a solution that could deliver innovative value to the consumers, the GSM Association created the Rich Communication Services platform. This initiative is revealed in a product branded joyn, which aims to provide other features beyond voice and SMS, namely enhanced calls, media content share and instant messaging. Outsourcing companies, like WIT Software, develop RCS solutions for the mobile operators so they can have their own joyn applications and thus provide new features to their customers. The purpose of this internship is to provide added value to WIT Software’s joyn client application, so it can stand out from its direct competitors and thus be the first option for operators. It can be accomplished by integrating WIT’s solution with social networks and cloud storages. By integrating social networks, users will be able to share content received during an instant messaging session, and enrich their contacts’ details with information from their respective social networks profiles. In the other hand, integration with cloud storages allows them to share any file that is in the cloud, store a received media file in order to make it accessible anywhere and anytime, and create a safe backup of their conversations.
