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.

i was using google messages for about 2 weeks because someone said i should have turned the chat off on my old phone before taking the sim out ..before this i had rcs on my phone but samsung chat would not work ...so after 2/3 weeks on google messages i went back to samsung messages and rcs had gone from the setting but for some unknown reason the samsung chat is working fine with delivered and read next to the blue chat bubble

this is what must have popped up on mine iv just read the link you posted

After about 48-72 hours of getting disconnected from the RCS Chat, you will be prompted to accept new Ts & Cs from Google to continue to use RCS. Accepting the Terms and conditions registers you with a Google RCS platform (Messages by Google)
