How to Enable RCS in Google Messages on any Android Device

RCS aka Rich Communication Services based Chat feature is now available to access on any Android device. Last year, Google has revamped its Android Messages app and brings a new feature called RCS, which brings a lot of really cool new useful features to the messaging app. RCS chat feature is set to be iMessage for Android, which means now you can send texts, documents, photos, videos, contact information, APKs, files, and more directly from the Google Messages app. Here’s the best way by which you can Enable RCS on any Android smartphone right now.

RCS feature was launched last year by Google. And the early release is available for the Pixel device users and in some other regions like France and the UK. But now you can use the RCS based Chat feature on your smartphone. Thanks to Reddit user NashRadical, for tweak into the process. And the method properly works in our testing for all careers and locations as well, it works in India, US, Canada, UK, Australia, France, and some other regions. While, Careers like T-Mobile, Verizon, and some others have already announced this features on Pixel 3, 3 XL, the new Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL.

Talking about the advantages of the RCS feature then, now you can send GIFs, stickers, big files, documents, high-quality videos, and a few other useful features. You can also press & hold to the record icon to send audio messages the same as WhatsApp, Hike, and other messaging apps. One of the best things is the auto-suggestions and ability to share direct results from Google Assistant suggestions. So, here’s how to enable RCS in Google Messages on any Android.

How to Enable RCS feature on any Android [Forcely]

The RCS feature can be accessed on any Android. We’ve tested the below-listed method on three different smartphones and all career networks in India. It also works in the US for all careers. We test this method on Moto G4 Plus (running on Android Oreo 8.0), Lava Z70 (Android Nougat 7.0), and Redmi Note 7 Pro (Android Pie 9.0). For enabling RCS, you need to download three apps, the Google Messages (Beta), Career Services, and Activity Launcher or Quick Shortcut Manager App.

After downloading the above-listed applications, follow the steps listed in the below section. You can also use Quick Shortcut Manager instead of the Activity launcher app, it crashes on Moto G4 Plus in our testing.

Steps to Enable RCS Features in Messages

  1. Download & Install all the three apps on your smartphone.
  2. Once done, head over to Activity launcher app, then click on All activities instead of Recent activities show at the top.
  3. Now find Messages, then find Set RCS Flags and click on it.enable rcs feature in messages
  4. Under RCS Flags, enable or set these flags (for India and other regions).
    • ACS Url – http://rcs-acs-prod-us.sandbox.google.com/
    • OTP Port – 0
    • OTP Pattern – Your\sMessenger\sverification\scode\sis\sG-(\d{6})

  5. Now tap on Apply, It will open Messages app with chat settings.
  6. Here you can setup your account by verifying your mobile number.enable rcs feature in messages
  7. That’s it.enable rcs feature in messages

Note for US users: There’s no need to set settings under flags except ACS Url. Yes, you need to set ACS Url only to http://rcs-acs-prod-us.sandbox.google.com/.

Now you can start chatting with your friends directly from the Messages with RCS advantages. According to me, the RCS feature should play the role of iMessage for Android. What do you think? Do let me know in the comment section.
