at0mixX , via OnePlus 6T , Oct 21, 2019 : Was messaging my wife earlier today and noticed the chat option available through the messaging app. Not sure if it was enabled by OnePlus or Google itself, but it was a nice surprise! I needed a messaging service to replace Google Allo and this is the closest thing to it! Currently using the 6T with Google Fi as the carrier. Has this been enabled for anyone else here in the US?
