Hallo. My name's Chris. I keep getting a notification on my phone screen headed Chat Messaging saying I need to download 'Messages by Google' app or my Samsung messaging client will no longer support RCS on my phone from 11 Dec. I've got no idea what any of this means. I don't know if it's a scam or what. Any idea who I can/should contact? Thanks

It's to support RCS messaging.

If you don't want or use it, just ignore the message.

What is RCS messaging, how does it work, and will it replace SMS? | Digital Trends

@Saint-555  If you have an Android phone you can control both the time and type of notifications.

The only notification that can wake me between 11pm and 6 am are from my family

This is not O2 and we are all customers here similar to yourself and cannot answer account type queries.

You can create focus groups on iPhones too but it will just stop notifications, not stop the receipt of them.
