    So despite the generally believed notion that Green Chat Bubbles signify SMS and Blue Chat Bubbles indicate RCS, my Chat bubbles in the Samsung messaging app have stayed that same dull green color despite having RCS through Tmobile. Besides switching to a 3rd party messaging app or theme (which I DO NOT want to do)...is there a fix in settings for this, or is this just the color Samsung forces all of it messages in its Messages app to be?
    (This post was posted on another forum and it appears no one is aware of RCS)

    Mine are blue when I'm chatting using RCS, but some are green. The answer I got from Samsung is it's carrier dependant on some phones and phone dependant on others. A friend of mine has a S9 and our chats used to be blue bubbles. After she did a software update they went green. She also uses a different carrier than me. I put my sim in her phone and RCS works so I'm guessing her carrier has it blocked for that model of phone because another friend on the same carrier as her with a note 10+ can RCS chat with me. Also some friends on my same network can't RCS with me using their Samsung phones. So carrier dependant. With the phone dependant side of things, Sammy tech support told that Samsung has the ability to allow it or not through software and because RCS is relatively new for Samsung, they disable it on some devices after collecting usage data to try to improve it in the app. I call BS on that, but that's what I was told. Hope my confusing answer helps a little. Lol.

    Understood..its just crazy cause I really do despise the green colored txt bubbles...but I DO NOT want to use a 3rd party launcher nor do I want to switch to another theme. What to do ?

    I dunno if this is true but I heard google messages has RCS enabled. If you switch to it, it doesn't matter if your carrier supports RCS or not it still works if your phone is capable. Like I said that's what I heard not sure if it's true.

    Google does it through their proprietary Message app (forced). Tmobile (and now Sprint) and I believe AT&t have enabled RCS on their devices. I don't know about Verizon.
    I use Tmobile and it definitely works...its just them damn text bubbles

    It doesn’t work on carrier models either on AT&T unless you use Google messages.

    So exactly how do we enable it or even know if we have it? I'm not sure what this RCS is all about but I wanna be a cool kid, too.

    Att hasn't enabled it on the Samsung messages yet. It works with Google messages though. I don't think Verizon has enabled it either through the Samsung messages app. I really wish they would because I prefer the Samsung app.

    I have read receipts and typing alert turned on. Doesn't seem like that's worth all this hullabaloo. I'll have to go read more. I'm not sure I like people knowing when I read they're text. They might want me to reply.

    It's Advanced Message AT&T has it a few years or so, but i disabled it didn't like it, to me is worthless me and wife were only ones on it lot of other family members or friends were on different Carriers, RCS only works with AT&T the one that's build in won't work with other carriers.

    Good job Google, Android OEMs and useless carriers. The amount of confusion for simple messaging app is crazy

    This combination works, that one doesn't etc.
