    Yes, according to Chatr: https://www.chatrwireless.com/web/co...ssages_upgrade

    But both Android phones have to be using the Android Messages app.

    Does it work with other carriers?

    Bell and Virgin partnered with Samsung, so Advanced Messaging only works with recent Samsung phones while using only the default Samsung Messages app.

    TELUS/Koodo/Public still don't support RCS, AFAIK.

    Of course, the Rogers family -- Rogers (Rogers 1), Fido (Rogers 2), Chatr (Rogers 3) -- all support RCS the same using only the Android Messages app.

    That sucks. Do you think Samsung and Google will kinda merge the tech so they work across all Androids around the world?

    Oh, I should have mentioned earlier that Freedom Mobile is in the process of launching RCS now with Android Messages v3.6. So at least Rogers, Fido, Chatr, and Freedom are on the same page.

    Samsung announced exactly a month ago that they're collaborating with Google to make sure RCS works seamlessly with both Samsung Messages and Android Messages: http://www.samsungmobilepress.com/ne...ng-for-android

    Working together, Google and Samsung will ensure that their messaging clients, Android Messages and Samsung Messages, work seamlessly with each company’s RCS technology, including cloud and business messaging platforms.

    Yeah, I found an article on Android central saying Samsung will make it happen on Android 9.

    Yes, it works for me on Chatr! I'm using Android Messages v3.4.048 (the last version that let you set custom colours for your contacts) on my Samsung Galaxy Note 4.

    My girlfriend is on Rogers with her Samsung Galaxy S5. I just switched her from Samsung Messages to Android Messages (the same v3.4.048 as me). When you install Android Messages, it says:

    'Do more with Messages
    To get chat features, like messaging over Wi-Fi and data, let Messages stay connected in the background.

    LEARN MORE

    Messages will share device hardware and SIM information with your carrier.

    NOT NOW, NEXT'

    So I clicked on NEXT and a few seconds later I saw a large animated checkmark.

    I then went into Settings -> Advanced -> Chat features. I think that's when it asked me to let Android Messages bypass battery power saving. The top three options under "Chat features" were all turned on:
    - Enable chat features: Use Wi-Fi or data for messaging when available,
    - Send read receipts: Let others know you've read their message,
    - Show typing indicators: Let others know when you're typing.

    It took a few minutes after installing Android Messages before the typing indicators appeared on both our phones. When I send a message to her or she sends one to me, I first see "Sent", and then "Delivered". Once a message has been read, I see "Read".

    I have to say...Samsung tech that bell us using is not as good. Let's say if you lose LTE connectivity, even if you're on wifi, it will switch back to regular messages. So it's a mix of chat and sms thru out a conversation. Apparently Android messages does it better.

    So, it still doesn't work for me (again) and now I see that chair has scrubbed their website mentions of RCS. Has anything changed for you?

    My Chatr account isn’t active now. I’ll check when I top up soon.

    OK, I topped up my Chatr account today. I tested texting back and forth to my girlfriend's phone on Rogers, but RCS is no longer working.

    Thank you so much for getting back. At least I know now it's not just me.

    You're welcome. I just sent three text messages to my girlfriend on Rogers, and all three were sent with RCS! Yay.

    I tested yesterday just minutes after topping up my Chatr account -- maybe that wasn't enough time for RCS to get reactivated?

    Anyway, RCS is working great today on Chatr!
