    I use the Samsung apps because I like the consistency in design over them.

    I feel the same way. About the only Google apps I open are Play Store & Maps.

    Do Americans still not have Samsungified Google messages?

    I am British. I use all Samsung on my S10+ and all Google on my Pixel. My Samsung messages does have RCS built in so I have no need for Google messages and I like being able to pin contacts and sort messages into categories.

    That's a good balance. You get the best of both worlds.

    Samsung announced a partnership with Google say the S21 launch event, part of which included shipping a custom build of Google messages which basically includes the best features of both apps "in Britain markets". Check out this build version:

    The icon is the same as in the screenshot. I use a custom icon pack and have absolutely no idea what the default icon looks like for Google or Samsung tbh lol

    It's the UK unlocked directly from Samsung. Both apps are pre-installed and can't be removed or disabled.

    Obviously your note 20 ultra wouldn't have Google messages pre-installed as the partnership is new, but apparently the US S21 line didn't launch with it either for whatever reason.

    Yeah I heard that the s21 was supposed to come with Google/Samsung collaboration and looks like international version getting it before US .

    Yeah it was big news when launched and international versions had this. Not in the US obviously since Samsung has no authority here and dance to whatever carriers say

    They probably have to first get all their buy in here. Anyway doesn't matter we can use the Google Messages directly so doesn't affect me personally whatever they decide to do.

    As crazy as this sounds, I keep them all Samsung because the Google Messages doesn't give me the true Black theme. I like having as much of that AMOLED black goodness as much as possible on my device.
    I too love those dark themes!

    I am in the UK and Samsung messages has RCS built in with my S10+. I use that in preference over google messages as I like being able to pin messages and set up categories.

    The most obvious difference is that it will over-scroll like a one UI app (so that it says "Messages" on the entire top third of the screen). It doesn't have categories that I can see, which I never used, but it does filter span.

    Most importantly it doesn't obfuscate long messages behind a "view all" button. A practice which infuriated me with Samsung messages.

    Screenshot of default app picker showing that they bizarrely and confusingly both use the Google icon.
