How to enable RCS Chat features on Android using Google Messages

RCS Chat, Google’s vision for the future of messaging, is slowly rolling out to people around the globe. However, rather than waiting on carriers to adopt the RCS standard, Google’s taking matters into its own hands and enabling RCS Chat for all phones regardless of carrier in select countries — you just have to use its Messages app. If your phone is supported, here’s how to enable RCS Chat features in Google Messages.

How to enable RCS Chat features in Google Messages

Open Google Messages on your Android phone.

  • If you don’t have the app, you can download it for free.

Tap the three dots in the upper-right corner.

Tap Settings.

That’s all there is to it! It may take several seconds for Google Messages to verify your phone number, but once it’s completed, your Status should change from “Setting up” to “Connected.” When you message someone else who also has RCS enabled, the chat will automatically offer the enhanced messaging experience.
