Here’s how to enable RCS Messaging on Android Phone

Google is partnering with carriers and OEMs to offer a native messaging client, Messages, for RCS, SMS, and MMS messaging. RCS messaging was initially designed to move mobile networks beyond texting but different approaches made it quite difficult and cost-inefficient for carriers to bring it to users.

By aligning on the GSMA’s universal RCS profile with the Messages RCS client app, carriers can now provide RCS messaging across Android devices. Well, this post is about How to enable RCS Chat features in Google Message.

Meanwhile, Google itself has upgraded its Android Messages app to offer iMessage style texting to its users on its platform with the help of RCS Chat. As of now, Google has rolled out RCS for users in the UK and France and other users are left at the whims of carriers.
