thanks for the info.....not a fan of read receipts though....
Dude, me neither but you can turn it off so it's no big deal. RCS is really a big deal though because SMS can sometimes not reach it's intended person even though the message says "sent". Hell, there was a story a few days ago about people just now receiving messages that were sent from Valentine's Day. RCS fixes that kind of issue.

I was always looking for Android devices to have some sort of messaging app similar to iMessage and looks like this is it. I’ll sit tight and see how it works for the masses before I jump ship if I jump sh*t.

Might come back to android now that they finally dropped this. They should enable it by default tho because it's useless if people don't activate it.
This won't work with apple or iMessage. If you left Android because they didn't have this why would you return now that they do?

I’m not talking about leaving Apple immediately. If they somehow get an agreement where it works between the two, it would make the decision easier. Improved texting between android devices is already better than what they had a year ago and half my friends/family probably use android anyway.

First off hardly no one uses that app. Most people use the stock texting app on the phone. Second not only do you have to install the app, switch it to you default app but you also have to go into the settings and turn it on! Most people don't care enough to do those 3 steps

Got you. that agreement we never happen. Apple has no incentive of sharing iMessage. Google would have to release their messages app to iPhone in which case you'd have to use 2 apps. Which you probably already have iMessage and whatsapp so this would make a 3rd

I get that. It’s more so wishful thinking but Apple knows iMessage is the main reason people stay loyal. There’s no reason for them to open it up to google. I’m at the point where I don’t think it’s really worth it.

Hopefully enough people are aware that it will be a natural process to have it spread out fast and easily depending on its popularity, which will depend greatly on the quality of the app itself

Might switch back to Android

s10+. OneUI 2 is beta, yes

RCS is not beta.. google is officially rolling it out. but how it will interact with the carrier's version of RCS next years remains to be seen

Eh i would disagree, it’s an individual choice bro

Everything comes with requiring to compromise to some extent, and in my case, the point of contention is on advanced messaging systems

And this is coming from an android user for many, many years

RCS is being rolled out to everyone, not just beta testers. Just have to use google's messages app which has been around for forever

Google:

"Your texts don't have end to end encryption"
"But everyone else has it"
"Its complicated and continue to study to solve the issue"

LOL

Give the feds all your texts, go ahead

Now they just need to make messages the default text app on all android phones to get people using it. Stop letting the manufacturers use their sh*tty in house apps.
