    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?

    Looks like Google are putting pressure on the U.S. carriers with this worldwide, universal, feature.

    Been on this in the U.K. for about 3+ months now, along with France, and it has been working well. The app/service has some way to go to rival the likes of Whatsapp but it is a start at least.

    When it was enabled on the OnePlus 6 & 6T for the U.K. and France by Google, we just had to ensure that we had installed Google Messages from the Play Store and enabled Chat Settings in the Messages settings and we were good to go.

    Same happened to me on my 7 Pro. Seems like Google jumped the gun on pushing it out to some people.

    Some U.S. carriers such as T-Mobile are experimenting in getting their own, limited, RCS services to run on the Google Universal profile. This may explain the sudden connections and disconnections.
