RCS support

With more and more providers starting to roll out RCS across the world. I'm just wondering if O2 have announced if they will be rolin it out across the uk any time soon.

No, not heard anything as yet.
I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

Re: RCS support

Yeah but I wasn't aware of it?
Does anyone know or is it an error?

Re: RCS support

It's so close to tugo, they probably won't bother.
O2 Germany use it but much like Vodafone UK with message+ the o2 Germany app for its use is too close to tugo for o2 UK to bother, they will probably just enhance tugo with the added features instead.

Re: RCS support

Tugo is awful i don't want to break out to use yet another messaging service. Just make it into standard SMS and be done with it. Google are making it easy for O2. Just got the updated carrier app today from Google and apparently that's to fully enable RCS in the android messenger app. So come on o2 give us and RCS and WiFi calling for that matter and get rid of tugo

Re: RCS support

No, please leave Tugo for those of us who want it.
Asking to get rid of Tugo is like asking to get rid of the ability to make phone calls just because everyone wants data these days.

Re: RCS support

Any news on this? My phone(Nexus 5X) has just updated 'Messages' and 'Carrier services' to support RCS?
