Is RCS on Pixel 2 XL?

26kick

    Hi all,

     

    Does RCS work on the Pixel 2 XL? Obviously it's not a T-MOBILE branded phone but I'd love to have the functionality RCS offers over SMS.

     

    Thanks!

        T-Mobile uses it's own, but in the near future they are planning on moving to Universal Profile which the Pixel 2 line does support.

          Hi there!

           

          Just wanted to chime in and say tidbits is spot on. I just don't have any specific dates as to exactly when it'll roll out. Thanks for posting.

              Thanks for responding, guys! I'm really interested in RCS.

               

              Tidbits, do mean that it currently works on T Mobile phones, using it's own protocol, which the Pixel can't use?

               

              Mike_c, thanks for the insight on what's coming. Do you think that when Universal profile comes online, will it work seamlessly with iMessage on my Pixel 2 XL? I'm in a band and all the other guys have iPhones. Apparently I screw up the features of iMessage for everyone just by being in the thread. ? I don't want to be the odd guy anymore, lol.

               

              Thanks!

                  Yes currently T-Mobile uses their own long before Universal Profile was introduced.  T-Mobile is migrating over to the Universal Profile which was finalized I believe November of last year.

                   

                  iMessages is doesn't work with RCS, and it's own thing.  Apple doesn't support RCS.
