GETTING STARTED WITH RCS CHAT

First, you have to download and install the Google messages app on your android phone. I recommend Google messages app because that’s the only rcs chat feature where you can react to text messages on android at the moment.

Kindly tap on the chat features and toggle on the button that states enable chat features. Once you have done that, the rcs chat feature will start connecting to your cellular network service and this is to verify your phone number.

This shows that you must have a sim card in your android phone in order to have it connected to rcs chat feature on android. 

This can only take for about 15 minutes to 30 minutes and your phone number will be connected and ready to use the rcs chat feature on your android phone.

Once your phone number is connected to the rcs chat feature, you will see a green color that states Connected and chat features are ready to be to use for 1442222222 phone number.

If you happen to see Chat features unavailable for this device. Your carrier does not currently support this feature. Learn more on your chat feature, please don’t go giving yourself a headache cause that means your carrier network service doesn’t support the rcs chat feature on android.

You have to wait until your network carrier supports the chat feature or you should go ahead and contact your carrier network for more information as to why they are not supporting the chat feature on android.

Now you have connected your phone number to the rcs chat features on your android phone, you are very much set and ready to use the chat message especially to react to text messages on your android phone and tablet.

So far you can’t like a text message on samsung chat feature, unless you have to use the google messages app which featured text message reactions just like on imessage.

Samsung is yet to add text reactions to its chat message so I recommend you to kindly download and install the google messages app as it is way better for me compared to Samsung chat.

There’s no like button on android messages but with rcs chat feature on android, you can easily react or like a text message using the like emojis on the rcs chat.

If you are implying it there’s a like button on android for sms text messages, I’m sorry that isn’t not possible as there’s only a like emojis.

However, there’s a like emojis on sms text messages on android but you can’t react to any text just like on the rcs chat.

Can you like a text message on android?

Yes of course, you can like a text message on android by simply using the Google messages rcs chat feature which is available to all android phones and tablets.
