Google or Samsung should have done this years ago, instead of waiting for carrier approval. At least Google is finally manning up. Fock the carriers and anybody that love em.
Aye bruh whatever happened to that DrLove guy?

Dude got ran off bx



He was the biggest Tmobile stan ive ever seen in my life

Dude used to make entire threads confessing his love for the network and how it saved his family

iphone doesnt have RCS. they have their own in-house messaging platform (imessage), similar to Signal, Whatsapp, etc.. RCS is just being added to android right now.

but this will be like imessage for android (without the encryption...). hopefully google eventually adds encryption to Messages (like they had in Allo), and that apple isnt stubborn and allows RCS on imessage soon.

or Americans can catch up to the rest of the world and ditch imessage/sms for better, 3rd party messaging apps.
why should i care about any of this lol? seriously my android text app works just fine.

That dude's life has been in shambles ever since the Sprint merger got held up. Probably been sitting at home in the dark, with all the blinds closed, wearing the same clothes from last month.

its basically the imessage of android. faster messaging, chat indicators, etc.

the 2 biggest improvements though, in my opinion, are: 1) ability to send any file, at any size, with very little compression. right now you can't send files over certain sizes (videos, etc), and pictures are compressed like crazy making them look like sh*t.
2) way better group chat functionality (instead of transitioning in and out of MMS if you want to start a group chat)

but if you're happy with what you got, no need to worry about any of this

ive never sent a video in my life lol, i don't do group chats. I hate iphones with a passion and am not aware of the advantages of imessage. What do you mean faster messaging? when i send a text its instant, i never have to wait for my message to get to my friend.....i dont know im in canada maybe our service is better? i doubt it though.

Nah.. you're misunderstanding. RCS is the evolution of SMS and removes the limitations of SMS. Maximum file size of 100 MBs of pictures, video, gigs, etc being sent.. typng indicators.. read receipts, etc

A lot of carriers implemented their own version of it but this is universal and works cross carrier now

You may not care but it's a big deal

Almost half of the US is on Android, and only 10% of the world is on iOS, so a lot of people care... And yes, most people worldwide use WhatsApp, but not many in the US do unless it's for travel or messaging people abroad. This affects a lot of people

You should care because now you can send a movie to someone without having pixelated videos on the other handset. You can see every detail in a picture sent.

Very soon, no matter what you do, you are going to have it lol.

reading your posts, you're not the the user RCS is intended for.

I'm in 4 group chats. sending memes and videos of kids and other stuff. in 3 of the chats, I'm the only android. video quality is so bad that I don't even try to watch them.

It's a real shame that google, android, carriers, etc. haven't solved this sooner.

a lot of people actually text more that call and texting for most on android is horrible.

imessage isn't some great secret feature. it's how messaging is suppose to be. how apple figured this out forever ago and android is just now coming around, just smh

I prefer using what's app than any android messenger and that's just not right

it's just basic but please super duper ultra wide camera please. that's what users really need. take those super high quality pics to get compressed later when people try to text them. how dumb is that? think about it. 4k videos become worse that 240p lol. so sad you have to laugh. they can't think that is acceptable in 2019.

2 0 1 9

let me stop ranting. I can keep going lol

just means the update hasnt reached you yet. its slowly rolling out over the next month, so either just need to be patient, or follow that other guy's instructions to do it manually through a back way

i have the S10+ too. I had to enroll in the beta program to get OneUI 2. So it still has a few bugs, but overall its great. If you want to do that, go to the "Samsung Members" app and check for a link near the top that asks you to enroll in the beta program. If not, just need to wait for the final version to be pushed out to everyone

Lol at the people saying they don't care about read receipts. Y'all saying that only proves that y'all really do.

im pretty sure most people prefer RCS &/or an app similar to send HD vids/image with no to minimal loss of quality as well as more characters
