I just got off the phone with an Xfinity Mobile CSSR who was clueless but finally read me a terse one sentence that amounted to "Xfinity Mobile plans to support RCS someday."
Here is an article from USA Today that gives the current status of the rollout by each major carrier. So far Verizon says that it only supports a few devices and there seems to be other issues. Not promising at all for anything happening with XM anytime soon. https://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/columnist/2019/12/16/does-android-rcs-messaging-work-with-imessage-your-wireless-carrier/2662200001/
I would also like to know why RCS Messaging doesn't work on my Galaxy S9? I installed Messages by Google and RCS still doesn't work. It used to work if I did the hacked way but that way doesn't work for me anymore.
Galaxy s8 here, came here looking for an answer because according to TechLinked (who double checks sources) says that RCS is just plain "available and implemented in America" and I've seen posts from people testing it on Xfinity Mobile and it works. Would love to get this working ASAP so I can start converting people!
Sorry, link didn't post. Use these instructions to get RCS.
I wanted to provide an update and clarify the status of RCS. I can confirm that Xfinity Mobile plans to offer Chat/RCS capability in the future. Currently, there is not a projected availability date.
Not all manufacturers/devices or carriers currently support Chat/RCS. Recipients who do not have Chat/RCS capability will instead see messages as standard text messages without the additional features.
As soon as there are any new developments, I will make sure to provide an update.
