Bar stewards, aren't they?

You'd almost think they have been monitoring our discussions 🤔😑

Re: RCS Messaging on O2

I'm using an S9+ and the Google messages app, feature showed for me yesterday, took around 10 minutes to verify my phone number and works perfectly. I only have 2 other contacts currently who have the same, one is my best friend on Vodafone and works as "chat" to her, can see when she's typing and read etc and the bubbles are darker blue than the standard SMS ones (she's using Samsung's SMS app on an S10 as Voda are natively supporting). Not sure why some with Samsung phones aren't able to download the app, I've had it since it's been available IIRC on S6, S8, S9 and now S9+, never had any compatibly problems.

Re: RCS Messaging on O2

After reading this, I've just downloaded Google Messages again.

 

I downloaded it on my Galaxy S10 which is on O2 Pay Monthly. It states in the settings that chat features are unavailable for my device. It shows my mobile number so I assume that's already confirmed? Screenshot_20190626-002327_Messages.jpgScreenshot_20190626-002327_Messages.jpg

The phone number can be edited so the fact that it's auto populated makes no difference. Oddly mine say that the carrier does not currently support this feature in the Chat features section as well as the same message you're getting.

 

Makes no difference though as Google will be providing the RCS support.

Re: RCS Messaging on O2

I just think that Google hate the Galaxy S10. Since getting my S10, my Google Home devices no longer communicate with my phone. Say if there's a reminder, the Google Home will say 'there's a reminder' but it no longer displays on my phone, despite having everything set up as it should be. I've seen other people say the same thing in the Google forums. Now there's this RCS issue with it not being supported on the Galaxy S10...

Re: RCS Messaging on O2

It said that for me too before. However after a couple weeks I opened my Google messages app and it popped up asking if I wanted to activate so I did. I cannot test it though as I do not have any RCS contacts as far as I'm aware.

Well, the ides of July is (are?) nigh, and my SMS+ Backup utility will stop functioning tomorrow.

 

So I have downloaded Google Messages again, no RCS "Chat features unavailable for this device..." in "Settings", "Advanced".

 

Oh well, maybe some day...

 

No option but to use it, it seems, RCS or not.Don't know
