Re: RCS

Just received RCS on my Pixel 4xl that's with Optus, I checked several times throughout the morning and have now just been able to activate chat features.

Re: RCS

What's funny though is the friends and family that I know have RCS set up on their smartphones, I cannot currently send chat messages to them, they are with Telstra, now the people that use Optus I know I can send chat messages lol 😆, I guess better than nothing lol 😂

Re: RCS

Telstra will be turning off their version of RCS gradually by 30 November for remaining users. They'll move to Google RCS and you'll be able to chat with them then. It is already happening to a number of people.

Re: RCS

I found out if you're on a Pixel and don't have the option, make sure you have Carrier Services installed.

Once installed on my wife's Pixel 2XL the option to enable chat features appeared instantly

Re: RCS

I've been able to chat messages with people on Telstra also 👍, they have to clear the cache and storage in messages, then reapply the chat messages in settings to enable it again,

Re: RCS

can confirm that as of about 3:30pm, maybe 4pm AEDT yesterday afternoon, my OPPO AX7 (Android 8.1) and my younger brother's OPPO AX5s were able to communicate over RCS.
