    Ok, my ATT is taking sweet time to connect. Finally connected after reboot. Upon testing, i'm not being able to see other side typing or read indication. Is there something else i need to install?
    You have to remember it only works with other people who also have RCS installed. It will say "chat" instead of "text" in the typing box, and you'll see a little padlock for the encryption by the send button. It's pretty cool to use if another one of your contacts has it....takes texting to the next level. But very few folks seem to have it enabled. I set up me and my wife's phone's with it which has been very cool.... but we're the only contacts either of us have that have it enabled.

    Once I learned that when RCS is enabled all of your texts go through Google servers, and are unencrypted, I disabled this feature.

    I dont need Google keeping a record of, and snooping through my text messages.

    It kinda has to go thru the Google servers if you want cross device texting. All of them do. But lol at people that think Google is reading ever text like we are that important.

    My understanding is that it's end to end encrypted just as Signal and Whatsapp and such are. Why do you think it's stored on their servers unencrypted?

    Hey found out that RCS doesn't offer end to end encryption for group msgs still !! Also it's only viable with others that have the service no different to a 3rd party .
    What's the point when you can use signal or even The gram.
    I mean if you had a choice between what's app,FB msgner,Telegram or signal no brainer for the current time.
    Signal encrypts everything,Whipser systems with where who,how with actual decent protocols & privacy.
    Can't be Linked across PC,Phone so forth unlike Google msgs.
    Until group Msg is fixed & it becomes more widely implemented I think much better options ATM.

    Yeah ok I agree,It's rolled out here in Aus seems to be with most Samsung & Pixel devices. Lol of topic though Vodafone i.e TPG limited owns also is upgrading there sub data cable connected to Guam big connect for Asia Pacific & North America so makes sense. Guess the countries who are not or won't implement it not a issue I guess i.e India,Iran,Russia so forth.

    From what I've read RCS group msgs still no encryption,If your going to encrypt do it or at least say why you aren't.

    For other countries not sure how it will be handled but for group messages i guess because its not individually is why its not encrypted.

    Yeah that fits in though why not state that,Why not use the same system in group msg so if all parties are RCS it's encrypted. Just Knit picking spics & specs.
