    Are you sure? I'm on Rogers and have had is for at least 6 months or more. I didn't do anything special, it just appeared on Messages one day.
    Rogers has had it working for over a year I have learned.

    Telus (my carrier) only has it officially available on Pixels.

    having interacted with it for a little bit now, I can kind of tell that when two devices are on the jibe platform, the messages are transmitted over data.

    when one end point is not on jibe, it routes over sms.

    That is to say, it's not really RCS with SMS; it's an alternative message platform using a data service.

    That better explains to me how I'm able to get this feature independent of my carrier.

    RCS / Jibe messages just showed up on my AT&T Priv. Beta version of Messages. No workaround required.

    Interesting... no doubt because the AT&T branded PRIV did support Enhanced Features unlike the BYOD KEY2. I need to check my AT&T PRIV and see if it is showing on mine.

    I doubt it. My BYOD unlocked K1 got it first.

    it's definitely Google managing the beta rollout.

    join the beta program for messages (link in app description). Then make sure that the beta updates on your your device.

    Then wait.

    I'm on the Beta version... I just fired up my PRIV and updated the app and I now have RCS on my PRIV... 👍

    Yes, unfortunately. Also isn't compatible with imessage, sends as a regular sms.
    It's more iMessage which isn't compatible with RCS. RCS is a standard, iMessage is specific to iDevices.

    Its up to Apple to make it work with RCS, not the other way around.
