Re: Samsung Galaxy S8 / S8+ Reservation numbers / Questions

Hey guys, since Rogers supports RCS Messaging does anyone know when the stock Samsung Messages App will be updated to enable RCS on Rogers?

If I use the Google Android Messages App enhanced messaging is enabled/works. However the stock Samsung Messages app doesn't show the option to enable RCS.

 

I did some research and the Samsung Messages App supports RCS with other carriers, but not Rogers, I would like to use RCS with the default Samsung Messages APP instead of having to keep Android Messages installed. The Samsung Messages app supports the feature, it's just not enabled on Rogers for whatever reason.

Hey @gp-se,

 

Great question.  As far as I know, we're only supporting the Android Messages app for the time being.  If this changes, we'll be happy to share the news here with the Community Forums.

 

On a personal note, I'm just curious what makes you prefer the stock Samsung Messenger over Android Messages?  Is it a Bixby issue now that it's fully out in Canada?   I was never really a fan of the stock Samsung app and switched to Google Messenger well before RCS and Android Messager.  Maybe I'll switch back if there's something I'm missing.

 

Have a great weekend!

I do use Bixby a lot, so I try to stick with the stock Samsung apps. Hopefully you guys release the Samsung Messages app that has RCS enabled soon!

New Firmware released for the S8 today!

No release notes, but still Android 7.0 with the August Security Patch.

Hello @gp-se

That came almost 2 weeks ago for many of us.. I got that last Tuesday ( did a auto update last Tuesday around 6am for me overnight).

I guess your device got it a bit late. It happens with some devices I noticed. Great to see the update came out but a bit late as we are in October, u would think the September one would come instead.

I got AQI3 last week, this is a newer version:

G950WVLU1AQI7

 

I was on XDA-Developers, and other people with Rogers reported getting the new update today too!
