    I read on droid life that Google Messages is implementing reactions to text messages in a similar way to iMessage. Has anyone gotten the update yet? Maybe it's server side?

    Been using it for a while now. Maybe it's because I'm on messages beta though.

    They are implementing reactions to RCS chat messages. If you're in the Android messages beta program, then you should already have this feature. RCS chat messages and SMS text messages are two different types of messages still. RCS chat messages are a dark blue color, while regular SMS text messages are a much lighter blue color. I hope this helps you out a little bit.

    Yep. That's the frustrating thing about RCS chat. Barely anyone I know has it. Most people just SMS texts still.

    Yeah , dude, hear you. However, most people in my life have iOS. And unless Apple adopts RCS chat standard, unfortunately, not much as you want to change. I wish it did though, cuz RCS can be very fast, fun, interactive. But I just don't see it changing anytime soon You know what I mean?

    Yeah, I mean the whole iPhone green bubbles versus blue bubbles for my messaging will most likely never change and I've gotten so used to it just like you guys have that I honestly don't give a crap too much lol. I just wish more Android people had RCS chat enabled. That's all.

    Yeah, dude, I hear you! I mean I feel the same exact way. RCS chat is a really fun way to talk to people just that barely anyone has it. Let alone pixel owners lol. As it is we're in a small niche minority of Android users lol.

    Every single person who I know (who I would text) has an iphone. So I didn't even bother enabling "chat" in Messages.

    Yeah, that's exactly why I didn't enable RCS chat features at first. But then I just gave in and said, I have a pixel that's one of the main points of Android why not!

    I have RCS enabled, and have one contact that I can use it with. I'm not on Beta, so I don't see any reactions, yet.
