Just read someone's post about chat features not working in Samsung messages. A moderator put this at the end of the reply. 
In regard to the chat features this has been removed on the latest versions of the Samsung Messages app. In order to use this you will need to use Google Messages.
Mine is still working at the moment. Not too happy about it if it's true. I prefer Samsung messages and use chat feature's.😔 Really hope it's false info. Anyone else heard they were doing away with chat in Samsung messages.

Hi Fiona26, I thought this to be the case, but I found out what the issue is with the Samsung message app & signing in to a different settings in Google, you have to scroll down to Google in the settings & double check you are signed in to the (Manage your Google account) option.
Also, make sure to go into settings, then connection then go down to more connection settings, then toggle on (rich communications), and you should be good to go.
Hope this helps1674015059781_1674015059775_0.jpg

Hi Blessed4life, it's not me having issues with Samsung messages chat. Mines working fine. I was just mentioning the moderators reply to someone else's post on here. Saying, chat is basically no longer available in Samsung messages. Been removed in latest versions. So if you use rcs messaging you need to use Google messages. Just hope that isn't true as I prefer using Samsung messages.

Hi Fiona26, yeah I thought as much it wasn't for you, but sometimes the moderators might get it wrong, I'm on the latest Samsung message as far as I know & my chat service is working without any issues.

I do  not have  a problem  with Chat in Samsung Messages either,cetainly ensure Rich communications is toggled on in Settings. According to this article it depends on your carrier activating the the advanced  Messaging Services for the stock samsung App.  However it is specifically referring to the U.S    https://www.androidcentral.com/how-set-rcs-chat-samsung-phones 

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.
