How to Get “Chat” RCS Features on Verizon Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL

Enable Messages Chat Features

Verizon confirmed earlier this week that the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL would see support for RCS Universal Profile “Chat” features starting today. We are still awaiting their arrival to the majority of phone owners, but can at least help you see if your phone has it or it can turn it on.

If available, you’ll be able to take advantage of advanced messaging options, like sending larger text messages (up to 8,000 characters), seeing typing indicators, receiving read receipts when messages have been read, larger group chats (up to 100 participants), higher-quality image and video sharing, chatting over WiFi, and larger file transfers. It’ll be great at some point. Maybe.

Just know that in order to participate in the full “Chat” experience, you’ll need a supported phone that has RCS Chat features, as will the person you are talking to. As of right now, there aren’t many that do! On Verizon, you’ll have the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, so you’ll need to know someone with one of those phones on Verizon. You should also be able to talk to T-Mobile Galaxy S7 owners, and some Sprint folks.

So how do you turn it on or see if you have it?

How to turn on RCS “Chat” features on Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL

1. Open the Android Messages app
2. Tap the top-right menu button and choose Settings
3. Tap “Advanced”
4. Look for a “Chat features” at the top

Verizon Pixel 3 RCS Chat

Not seeing that option? There are various reasons for that. For one, Verizon may be rolling this out slowly (reddit) and you just haven’t been given the green light yet. There is nothing you can do if that’s the case. You should check in Google Play for app updates, though. You might need a Messages (link) or a Carrier Services (link) update.

Anyone seeing the option yet?


The rollout will soon happen for all other manufacturers except Apple. Will they eventually hop on board like they are with the USB type C connector on the iPad?

As someone who uses Apple I want to see Android users have their own dedicated messaging app. I know several Android users who would benefit greatly from this. As someone who benefits from iMessage like you wouldn’t imagine I feel all cell phone users should be able to message seemingly effortlessly. Would it be dope if somehow iMessage or RCS was the default messaging feature across the board? Absolutely! But Apple prides themselves on having their own ecosystem that separates them from others.

it was MMS, messaging, video chat, SMS and VOIP features. i could even connect on chrome and text from a computer which googles messenger now can do

it was perfect imo you could of updated RCS but they wanted other sh*t and wanted hangouts to only be a business app..the moment they took sms (privacy issue) it died socially...everyone wanted them to bring it back and they gave us allo..what a joke..they should have fixed the techincally sh*t that the normal user doesnt care about

Lol what a f*g. Look at you all hoemotional over a phone. You're pathetic. You probably think you are winning this exchange and you probably are. That's what's so pathetic, that your bringing up moms and dads in a comment thread about phones.

Your life is obviously miserable and meaningless. Enjoy talking to yourself buddy.

Google can't be fu*king serious already

Push the fu*king update to all modern androids already


I'm tired of this

Make the fu*king carrier support the sh*t

Y'all losing billions cause people just want to send pics without quality loss and play games

If android just had game pigeon and something like iMessage and it was universal between all carriers and major manufacturers Apple would be stressed
