All of the backup apps I can find only backup sms and mms. I need to have my phone serviced but I want to preserve my rcs messages before the inevitable reset. Will Google cloud backup preserve them? Is there a manual option?

Do you know where is this documented?   The Google help pages I saw just say sms, no mms, and only last 25 MB.  Is this part of the messages app data backup?   Thx in advance!

Did anyone figure this out? I'm trying to transfer RCS messages from a Galaxy Note 9 to a Note 10, but I can't seem to do that. I think the RCS messages are the ones that have "Text Message+" in the details of a particular text sent to you.

Does Android backup do this? If not, any other suggestions?

I can see my backups in google drive and when I go through my phone menu but there is no way to trigger a restoration.

I don't want to do a factory reset so is there any other way to trigger a manual restore?

The only way is through a factory reset

The suggested ways here are too fragile to do as we can loose data by a factory reset, maybe we should wait until GOOGLE  figures this out
