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

    • Let me take a look tonight. 
    • Actually, I notice it says whole clusters were skipped because of invalid TAC values.  It says "File exported for inspection."  I do have Log Sites with Missing TAC checked. Robert
    • I was able to figure this out by looking at your diagnostic reports -- you're seeing n7 because your Galaxy A32 is reporting it natively as n7.. Samsung will have to fix that on their end unfortunately. Do the engineering screens report it correctly? I have an A32 test device but I have not seen it connect to n41 (or "n7") yet. If I do, I'll try to troubleshoot and nag Samsung. EDIT: After I installed the new Android 12 update, I'm now seeing the n7 bug too -- I will reach out to Samsung. They were very responsive when I reported some related glitches with the initial A32 software.
    • I appreciate the feedback today -- another new is SCP beta rolling out right now! It should resolve the force closes that started with yesterday's beta release; I also made additional improvements that hopefully(?) will reduce ongoing issues with overall app stability.
    • I'm noticing a spike in instability while driving around testing the app today also.. more freeze-ups than crashes, but it's probably all related. Hopefully any crash reports that are collected can shed some light on it for me. I'll be looking into it later tonight.
