Back in April, Samsung announced that the company is working with Google since 2018 to bring Google’s Rich Communication Services (AKA RCS) support for its Galaxy devices to make conversations more seamless. Following its commitment, the South Korean tech firm has started releasing a new version update to the Samsung Messages app.
According to the latest information, the Samsung Messages app getting support for RCS chat features with this new update. As per the screenshot shared on Reddit, the user updated their Samsung Messages app and got a new on-screen prompt notifying – “Faster, richer, higher-quality chat on Wi-Fi or data”.
Now, Samsung device users no longer have to install the Google Messages app to experience the RCS chat features. Samsung Messages app with RCS allows users to do chat over mobile data and Wi-Fi, receive and send high-resolution photos and videos, create feature-rich group chats, and receive read receipts.
Furthermore, the Samsung Messages app is also available on the desktop, which makes it easy to transition seamlessly from mobile to PC.
If the update for the Samsung Messages app doesn’t arrive at you, no need to worry. The RCS chat features will be available to download for you in the coming days/weeks.
