    So apparently Google took it upon itself to push out RCS instead of waiting for the carriers.

    And it should be noted it's a rollout. But Google is starting this immediately.

    I'm wondering if this is direct response to what Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint/T-Mobile announced the other day.

    It's a topic we were discussing in another thread. I may switch to it. We use Verizon Messages+, which already had some RCS features.

    Addendum: It IS exactly what we were discussing in the other thread.

    Btw, can we merge this and the Rich Chat Messages thread? It is essentially the same discussion for the most part.

    Sigh. Apparently this won't be available to third party text apps. Only Google Messages. Was hoping they'd supply an API

    The US carriers are rolling out their own apps. I don't think APIs have anything to do with it. I believe it is being able to connect to and using RCS servers.

    Earlier today I was able to enable RCS on my Verizon S10. Now it says it's not available for this device.

    I guess I should research this. Not sure how much different this is, to merely 'texting'...

    Holy RCS Batman! I'm RCS enabled!

    I opted into the Google Messages Beta program and installed the beta version.

    When I opened it, it enabled RCS.

    P.S. I'm Verizon with the Verizon Note 10+ 5G.

    Shhhhh! You're not suppose to bust my bubble like that. :P

    I'm already a beta tester for a few other apps, so it's no biggie for me.

    I'm still on the beta too from the earlier hack, but when I opened Messages I got an alert about it, hit continue or whatever and it installed it. Not sure if it'll stay on if I leave the beta now though. Didn't wanna risk it. LOL

    Anyone got this working consistently in Att? It doesnt matter if it's the beta or official it works for a few then disables. I'm assuming its Att mucking it up.

    I managed to turn it on this morning. Unfortunately for me, Thing 1 and Thing 2 use iPhones as do their husbands, (blasphemy, I know! ) and hub's phone is company owned and they don't let him do anything with it. All in due time according to them, which pretty much means never. So while it's enabled on my phone, I may never get to use it :/ Well, the wifi texting will get used but none of the other features.

    If you cant get it to work that video works and it will eventually be transitioned over per google. My issue is that just installing it worked for a few and then it turned off.
