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.

How do you know if you've received the push?

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.

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.

I was bummed when regular sms wouldn't even work with sprint wifi calling

    • Mike, are you still recommending that this beta only be used on on dual psim/esim devices or should it now be basically safe for all devices (with usual beta risks)?
    • A new SignalCheck Pro beta is rolling out right now with LOTS of bug fixes.. and some new features. The full changelog is in the app or on the website. In addition to many bugfixes, there are some notable new options: Colorize location display to indicate low accuracy (yellow when Trail Logger is enabled) or outdated timestamp (red). This is enabled by default. Enable/disable display of location coordinates with location accuracy and the location timestamp.. so now each value can be individually enabled/disabled. Configure the maximum age of location data before Location Service is restarted; the default remains at 10 minutes but can now be configured as desired. Limit max number of neighbor cells to display (including 0, if you only want to see the summary line). Some users are seeing LTE or NR data persist after a connection is lost. I made some minor changes, but I wanted to get this release rolled out before continuing to dig deeper into that issue since I made so many other changes that may or may not impact this bug. One thing that users can try is to disable the option under Preferences > Display Settings > Show Hidden Data -- that may resolve the issue. Looking forward to feedback! Thanks..
    • Yup. It keeps GPS info up to date while logging. 
    • Looks like GPS Status and Toolbox
    • https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/t-mobile-att-and-verizon-gear-super-bowl T-Mobile DAS upgrades and AT&T under the seats antennas are interesting. Hopefully someone gets pictures and details of the under the seats antennas.
