    Hey guys, I had Google Messages beta installed and had RCS working for months on my 6T running the beta oxygenOS.

    Today my phone prompted me to upgrade to OP6T_O2_BETA_34 afterwards RCS was no longer setup so I did the standard non work around way by simply clicking yes I'm in and letting Google take care of it. It verified my phone number and it was setup and connected but everytime I turn on wifi the RCS status changes from Connected to Connecting, but if I turn wifi off in reconnects in about 30 seconds.

    I can't help this is an oxygenOS bug due to the circumstances above, but I'm open to anyone's suggestions? I really like the RCS features.

    Thanks in advance.

    That may be but mine still says connecting while on wifi but if I change it to LTE it pops right up, I can repeat this over and over and everytime I get the same result.

    Are you in a country where RCS is available?

    If yes, the best thing to do is try clearing the storage of the app, force shut it then open it again. Hopefully that helps ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ if not, if you're on beta (for Messages app) try leaving it (then in order to get on stable, uninstall and install it again). Hopefully that fixes the issue, but I'm pretty sure it has to be something from Google's end.

    Thanks, I feel like I've tried it all.

    Yes I'm in a country where RCS is available. (USA, on AT&T)
    I've left the beta on messages tried that with the same results.
    I've cleared cache and force closed messages as well as carrier services.

    I still now all these hours later have the same issue. My phone has been on wifi for hours and I just checked now and it's still on "connecting". I just turned off wifi and it connected. Turned wifi back on and instantly back to "connecting"

    This article states that even though Google fixed the issue, some users are still affected by the outage.

    You could try resetting the WiFi on the phone, see if it helps.

    Settings, System, Reset Options, Reset WiFi Mobile Bluetooth

    If that doesn't rectify it, maybe contact Google on that in case it may be a residual wifi issue after the outage.

    As you are on Beta also submit a bug report
