    Not strictly a Pixel 6 thing, but since we're all on 12 and have Android Messages by default...

    Anyone have this update where they properly see iMessage reactions instead of getting "loved an image" or "laughed at..." messages? I

    This article from November say Messages version 10.7 has started rolling out with the feature, and a couple in the comments said it works for them.

    I have the latest Play Store version:

    version 10.7.461 (10.7.460_RC01.phone_dynamic)

    The reactions work with other Pixels. Is that common knowledge? GF and friend have Pixel 3s and I can do reactions to only their messages. This has worked for a while.

    Yera, I've been waiting since I saw that article and similar in November but still nada. I kept checking for app updates to see if the feature was going to be enabled, but I've given up on it at this point.

    I'm on the beta version and cleared app data, etc. Just waiting for an iPhone user to react to a message. But I don't want to encourage them.

    Looks like you all have RCS/chat enabled, which is a good thing. I only have two Android contacts with it. We can only do reactions if everyone else in the conversation is using RCS.

    Unlike Apple, where they enabled the reactions in the iPhone even for regular SMS messages. Pretty arrogant, IMO.

    Why is it arrogant? If they didn't enable it 85% of the iPhone owners likely wouldn't even know it was a setting and the iPhoners would be in the same boat we are in.

    It's a rich chat feature that doesn't work for SMS. Converting a user action into a text message for a subset of participants because they didn't buy the manufacturer's device is poor design, lame and arrogant. The majority of Android users were confused AF when they started getting those msgs, and I haven't met one who likes it. Even most iPhone users had no idea what was happening when questioned about it. The responsible design would be to restrict that feature to iMessage conversations.

    It would probably also make iPhone users even less willing to include "green bubbles" in their conversations, though.

    So yeah, I'm surprised they didn't do it.

    Of course, the other option, and the most ideal one as far as users are concerned, would have been to make iMessage cross-platform like Whatsapp, Signal, Telegram, etc. but we know how those discussions went.

    My family and most of my friends use either Signal or Wickr, so we are oblivious to this ongoing drama.

    I guess some folks get really spun up over it.

    I don't think many people get spun up over it or even know anything about it. It's not a big deal in the grand scheme of life.
