Anyone get the RCS update yet?

Recommended Posts

Just curious if anyone's had RCS get enabled in Google Messenger yet? I have the latest version (2.0.069), but still no RCS. Google and Sprint seems to indicate having the newest version is enough, but I'm wondering if there is a server side switch as well?

Yeah, it enabled for me yesterday. It took a couple of days after I updated the app. I haven't been able to test it out because unfortunately most of the people that I know with Sprint have iPhones and naturally use iMessage. It'd be nice if Apple baked RCS into iMessage, but of course they have no incentive to do so.

Have the update on my HTC 10 but not enabled yet. For the record, both parties need to be using Messenger, right?

To take advantage of the enhanced features, yes.

I opened the app and it asked if I wanted to turn on enhanced messaging and then some wizardry happened about sharing your sim info with the mobile provider. Didn't get any other updates.

Maybe it's been rolled out in regions because I have yet to get anything.

If it will also do regular MMS over WiFi in lieu of RCS I'll be pleased as punch. I really do like Google's messenger but I'm not leaving the stock messaging app without it.

Has any Nexus 5x users received it? I'm feeling a little left out.

It did with my previous phone ... Although wifi calling has yet to come to the 10, which I don't understand!

I have GS7 and turned on enhanced mesaaging in regular messaging app. I can send video no photo compression, but the other user should turn on the enhanced messaging also to work.

It gives new settings under the advanced sub menu allowing you to turn enhanced messaging off and on at will.
