    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.
    Yeah it works on both for me. But the Americans let their networks get away with murder!

    Only company they listen to is Apple, and they want RCS to succeed even less than the carriers do.

    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.
    Ok so it has a mix of both google and samsung flare , I do like the stock samsung message app but until I get rcs I'm going stick with google.

    Screenshot of default app picker showing that they bizarrely and confusingly both use the Google icon.
    Yeah that's weird, 2 of the same app lol

    As it should be. Give every Android user one stock sms/chat app.

    Agreed.
    I just don't understand why Google Messages can't get black/dark mode like Samsung Messages, the settings and rest of UI.
    That grayish theme they call "dark" doesn't make sense for our screens.
