I used to see the options for enabling advanced chat features in my Google messages app but not anymore, now if I want to use it I have to use Samsung messages

I am having the same issue using my galaxy note 9 in the UK. How do you turn on this feature in samsung messages? I would use that until this is resolved if i know how to activate it.

Yes it does change, when Samsung messages is default I can see the settings in Google messages, but when Google messages is active they dissapear. Also, I can use chat in Samsung messages and thought it is the same thing, I'm on Bell and they do support RCS last I checked

Some carriers are using an older version of RCS that is not Universal Profile compatible.  I suspect Samsung Messages is oping to use that version whereas Android Messages doesn't currently support the proprietary  RCS installs.
